Speaking after he was informed by Minister Ring, the Deputy warmly welcomed the news. ‘I was glad to learn that 54 groups and clubs, across Cavan were awarded funding from the Department of Sport. The funding will go a long way towards the purchase of equipment, to help the clubs to run sports events or try new activities.’

‘These clubs are the lifeblood for every community in the County and provide an excellent service for older people and their families. I am delighted that so many Clubs in Cavan were awarded funding, under this year’s allocation’ concluded the Deputy.
