The funding is being provided under the CLÁR programme as part of Our Rural Future, the Government’s ambitious policy for rural development.

Clare Fine Gael TD Joe Carey, the funding is a practical recognition of the work being carried out in providing access to sport and recreation activities in communities outside the major centres of population.

“The importance of the CLÁR programme in fostering community involvement has been recognised by Rural and Community Development Minister Heather Humphreys who increased its overall funding by more than 25 per cent to €7million this year,” Deputy Carey said.

Clare Fianna Fáil Senator Timmy Dooley said: “I want to congratulate the local groups on securing the funding and I’m looking forward to working with them on attaining further funding and developing the projects.”

Clare Fianna Fáil TD Cathal Crowe added, “I’m delighted to see such a significant allocation of money coming to Co. Clare under the CLÁR initiative in this round of funding.
