Letterkenny Golf Club

Eight Donegal sports clubs are to receive a combined funding worth a total of €294,200. 

The Leas Cheann Comhairle, Deputy Pat the Cope Gallagher said that the resubmitted applications from 2018 will result in almost €300,000 being allocated to clubs and other substantial sports capital funding is due to be allocated later by the department.

"I wish to congratulate those that have received funding as part of this particular round of funding," he said.
The Dungloe-based deputy said that many other clubs, associations and sporting organisations will have to wait a while longer until the more substantial funding is allocated.

Cappry Rovers Ballybofey - €95,400
Ballybofey Stranorlar Fitness centre - €14,700
Drumkeen United football club -€54,000
