Kilkenny clubs urged to apply for new €40m sports fund

Kilkenny’s sports clubs are being urged to apply to the €40 million sports capital fund to invest in their facilities and equipment.

The €40 million will be made available in 2021 under a new round of the Sports Capital and Equipment Programme (SCEP) annoucned by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.

Kilkenny TD John Paul Phelan reminded local sports to apply for the funding. Deputy Phelan in particular urged teams that provide opportunities for female members to apply.

The local Fine Gael TD said: “The SCEP is the Government’s primary vehicle for providing support to sports clubs and communities to develop sports infrastructure around the country.

“The Covid pandemic has emphasised how important sport is to our society. As well as the pleasure and excitement generated by watching our sporting heroes, actively engaging in sport is critical for our physical and mental wellbeing.

“The Government is committed to prioritising increasing female involvement in sport as participants, coaches, referees and administrators.

“The Sports Capital and Equipment Programme will help that important aim. Furthermore, it will boost participation in disadvantaged areas and ensure that those in every part of society can enjoy the physical and mental benefits of sport and exercise,” Deputy Phelan (pictured below) added.

The system will be open for applications from December 11 up until February 12, 2021. For more details, visit: https://www.gov.ie/sportscapital

  1. I was broken, rejected and almost lost all hope due to my 13 years of HIV infection. So I read about the doctor WHITE on a blog and wrote to him on Whatsapp Via: +2349O91844595 and Email: drwhitethehivhealer@gmail.com, after hearing my story he sent me herbal remedies that cured me of HIV / AIDS. My doctor is still puzzled by the results of the laboratory investigations because I tested negative 4 times after using the drugs. I lost all shame because I am now free and my husband took me back. I testify that you will be cured of hepatitis, cancer, herpes or diabetes and others if you use his medicines. Don’t be a victim, but be victorious.
