Community Recognition Fund


Yesterday the Government announced details of a €50 million Community Recognition Fund.

This major initiative, the first of its kind, is designed to specifically support communities across the country that have welcomed and are hosting families and citizens from Ukraine and other countries.

Among the projects that will be supported under the fund include: (further details on page 3 in the attached document)

  • The refurbishment of local sports clubs and facilities;
  • The purchase of equipment to benefit local clubs.

The €50 million has been allocated across all local authorities based on the number of new arrivals located there. Projects will be delivered by the local authorities in conjunction with relevant community organisations.

Provincial Branches and Clubs are encouraged to engage with local authorities to explore relevant opportunities there may be for their sport.
