This is a reminder to all clubs that this is the last week for applications for the Sport for All fund. The deadline is on Friday the 26th of August. We are encouraging as many clubs as possible to apply for this fund.

As part of Dormant Accounts Funding 2022, Sport Ireland are making funding available directly to clubs. This fund offers every club affiliated with a Sport Ireland recognised National Governing Body an opportunity to provide inclusive opportunities for participation for people with a disability. It will provide funding supports for local clubs to connect in a meaningful way with their community, potentially even building the club’s own community over time through the inclusion of people with a disability in all club activities.

  • Disability Supports Programme Activation and Delivery.
  • Disability Supports Small Scale Equipment and Infrastructure.

The funding will be distributed to clubs through an open and transparent application process administered by Rowing Ireland .
