Although disappointingly the Irish Sports Council's funding was cut by a further 8% in the 2014 Budget, there will be a new round of Sports Capital Grants.

In 2013 the ISA's Regional Development Officers Ciaran Murphy and Gail MacAllister helped ISA affiliated clubs and organisations secure a whopping total of €251,719 in funding. See below for details of what organisations were awarded funding and for what reasons.

If you think your organisation may want to submit an application for the new round of funding you must REGISTER YOUR ORGANISATION IMMEDIATELY. Click here for more information.

Applications for the Sports Capital Grant are not yet being accepted but all organisations must first be registered for the programme before they can submit an application. If you're unsure of what to do just contact your local RDO and they will help explain the process to you.
