Munster Council Awards €1m to Clubs

The Munster Council has announced details of the 2016 Development Grant Scheme, funding club and school capital development projects across the province.

Council Chairman Jerry O Sullivan said “I am delighted to announce the awarding of €1 million in grants supporting development projects in 129 clubs and 5 schools throughout Munster. These grants have supported an impressive range of capital development projects, with clubs investing close on €8 million. This level of expenditure is testament to the strength of the GAA in the province and reflects the impressive vision of our clubs to continually improve facilities for players and supporters alike.”

He added “The grants provided would not be possible without the great support we get from the many thousands of people who attend our games each year. We are very fortunate to have such loyal support in the province and we are delighted to be able to redistribute income from games to the clubs and schools.”

Of the fund available this year, Central Council provided €540,000, with the balance of €460,000 coming from the Munster Council’s own resources.
