To ask the Minister for Transport; Tourism and Sport the number of applications for the sports capital grant that were made from clubs and organisations in counties Louth and Meath; the details of clubs and organisations and the amounts applied for, in tabular form; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

REPLY.
The 2017 round of the Sports Capital Programme closed for applications on the 24th February. By the closing date, a record number of 2,320 applications seeking €155 million in grants were received. A list of all applications received is available on the Department’s website at http://www.dttas.ie/sport/english/sports-capital-programme-applications-received.

I expect that full details of the allocations will be announced later this week.
