88 Club and organisations in Mayo are to receive funding from the Mayo Sports Partnership under the 2022 Return to Sport Small Grant scheme.
€107,500 has been allocated by Sport Ireland and the Dormant Account Board will be divided among 88 sports clubs and organisations throughout the county.
Speaking on the announcement, Chairman of the Mayo Sports Partnership Councillor Michael Loftus recognised that small sports clubs and groups have had a tough couple of years, with many small sports clubs not yet back in operation. But he hopes that this funding could help get them back on their feet.
The Mayo Sports Partnership committee comprises of representatives from local agencies, sports organisations and community representatives and is core funded by Sports Ireland and hosted locally by Mayo County Council.
