“Dozens of Tipperary Youth Clubs to share in €160,000 Funding Grants,” Mattie McGrath


Independent TD Mattie McGrath has welcomed confirmation that up to 50 Youth Clubs across County Tipperary are to share in almost €160,000 from the Local Youth Club Equipment Scheme. Deputy McGrath was speaking the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Katherine Zappone today announced details of the almost 1,600 national youth projects and groups awarded grants under the €6.35m Scheme: 

“This is excellent news for the Foróige, Scouts, Girl Guide Clubs and Youth Clubs in County Tipperary. Although the Grants are modest enough, most are for €5000, they will still go some way toward alleviating funding pressure.

I want to commend all of those Volunteers and those members of the Education Training Board who are administering the Scheme for their hard work during the application process.

We all know how hard it is to raise funding and to keep the lights on for so many worthwhile projects.

It would be fantastic if these kinds of grants could be depended on annually. That is something I will continue to press the Minister on in the New Year,” concluded Deputy McGrath.
