Local TD and Minister for Transport, Tourism & Sport Leo Varadkar has announced €58,824 in funding from his Department for the all-weather pitch in Mulhuddart which means the project can now go ahead.
“This is a real breakthrough for the project which can now finally be developed. I am delighted that my Department is providing €58,824 in funding. The total cost is expected to be €95,000 and Fingal County Council will make up the difference.
“This new all-weather pitch will be developed beside the Mulhuddart Community Centre and will include floodlights. It will be an excellent facility for the area and will really meet demand.
“The grant is being made under a special scheme of sports capital grants to local authorities being funded jointly by my Department and IPB insurance. The grant they are getting is the maximum allowable under the scheme.”
