Davitts receive €80,000 sports development grant from Government

The Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Michael Ring announced details last Sunday of how €26m of funding for local sports projects is to be distributed. Davitts GAA Club is one of the beneficiaries in this round of grants, to the tune of €80,000!

Davitts applied for the sports grant earlier this year to help fund the construction of a new clubhouse. The application process took some serious preparation and hard work by a group of Club officers and committee members (Ronan Kirrane, Frank Hyland, Billy Kearns, Anne Ronayne and Tom Garvey). The Club would like to express their gratitude to this group for their efforts which have resulted in a massive boost for the Club in their efforts to significantly upgrade the facilities at the main pitch in Ballindine. The fact that Davitts GAA Club has been allocated such a hefty sum is testament to the work of the group.

Davitts would also like to thank John O’Mahony TD and County Councillor Patsy O’Brien for their assistance and support during the application process, and of course to Minister Ring for signing-off on the grant. Special thanks also to Joe Butler for his sage advice when assembling the application.
