Sport Ireland today announced a significant €36 million investment package for National Governing Bodies of Sport, High Performance sport and Local Sports Partnerships for 2020.
The Sport Ireland Local Sports Partnership Network will receive €8.3 million to support operations and programmes at a local level.
Speaking at the announcement at the Sport Ireland National Indoor Arena today, Chairman of Sport Ireland, Kieran Mulvey, said: “It is encouraging to see this significant uplift in funding for sport in Ireland; 2020 will see Sport Ireland allocate the highest amount ever in grant funding across the board. I would like to thank Minister Ross and Minister Griffin, and their colleagues in the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport, for their continued commitment to the National Sports Policy and the vision to transform the Irish sporting landscape in the coming decade. 2019 saw further development of the Sport Ireland Campus with the opening of Phase 2 of the Sport Ireland National Indoor Arena and a state of the art hockey pitch. These infrastructural developments underpin our athlete’s success on the playing field and further augment the Sport Ireland Campus as the epicentre of high performance sport.”
