Strand 3: Sports Club participation initiative support Scheme (max €1,000)
Sports Clubs may apply (where eligible) for one or more of the strands.
 
Colm McEvoy, Chairperson of Kerry Recreation & Sports Partnership said, “This is a great resource for local clubs to create, enhance and continue the amazing opportunities they are creating for people to be active, connected and healthy in their local communities”
 
The Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council, Cllr Jim Finucane, encouraged as many Sports Clubs as possible to apply for the funding opportunity.
“This is a most welcome opportunity for our sports clubs to access funding to support the participation of their members. Sport plays such a significant role in the lives of people in Kerry, and I would encourage all clubs to apply.” he said.
