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.

Munster GAA – Supporting Families and Patrons
During 2014 Munster GAA endeavoured to provide value for money to patrons at all times, while still maintaining its commitment to supporting Clubs and Counties financially as outlined above. In 2014, under 16’s gained entry free of charge to 80 of our 86 games, while the entry price to the 6 ticketed games was 3 and 5. The 3 Club Group Juvenile Package was very popular this year, with just under 2,900 kids entering the 6 ticketed games (5 Senior Hurling and Senior Football Final) through this scheme. In total, 25% of the attendance at the Senior Hurling Quarter and Semi Finals consisted of under 16’s. Some of the key figures for the 2014 competitions are as follows –
276,000 – The number of spectators who attended all games across all competitions
16 – The average cost of attending the Munster SFC
18.50 – The average cost of attending the Munster SHC
6.80 – The average cost of attending all other games
25,431 – The number of under 16’s who entered the 6 major ticketed games in the Senior Hurling (5) and Senior Football (1) Championships for 5
4,104 – The number of under 16’s who attended Senior Football Quarter and Semi Final games free of charge
Munster Council GAA commissioned W2 Consulting to undertake an analysis on the return on coaching investment across the province. The review of 2015 coaching investment is a follow up study to the research undertaken in 2011.
