Of the fund available to us this year, Central Council provided €540,000, with the balance of €460,000 coming from our own resources.
“This year, the GAA clubs of Munster who applied to this scheme spent a total of €6.3 million in physical development and the fruits of this investment can be seen across the six counties of Munster. This level of development underlines the strength of the GAA in the province.
“The Munster Council Development Grant Scheme underlines our commitment to the promotion of our games across the province. Over the last five years, this fund has invested €5 million in Club and School projects as The Association strives to provide best in class facilities for players and supporters alike. These grants would not be possible without the great support we get from the many thousands of people who attend our games each year and we are delighted to be able to redistribute income form games to the clubs and schools of the province.”
