The Sports Capital Programme aims to foster an integrated and planned approach to developing sports and physical recreation facilities throughout the country. In particular, its objectives are to:

  • assist voluntary and community organisations, national governing bodies (NGBs) of sport, local authorities and Education and Training Boards and schools to develop high quality, safe, well-designed, sustainable facilities in appropriate locations and to provide appropriate equipment to help maximise participation in sport and physical recreation
  • prioritise the needs of disadvantaged areas and groups (such as people with disabilities) in the provision of sports facilities
  • encourage the sharing of sports facilities by clubs, community organisations and national governing bodies of sport.

We have put together resources with FUND READY through S3 Solutions to assist out ladies gaelic football clubs, counties and provinces should they wish to avail of this grant and these are available to download below:
