A new 14 million euro fund has been set up by government to develop outdoor adventure activities in rural Ireland.
Minister Heather Humphries will launch the scheme today.
It's open to local authorities, development companies and state bodies to develop adventure tourism locations.
There's calls for applications from projects involved in hiking, horse-riding, kayaking, surfing, sailing, paragliding and hang-gliding among others.
The projects can range from small scale costing less than 20,000 euro to a maximum state funding of half a million euro.
Applications to the Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme must be made to the Department of Rural and Community Development.
