Minister Joe McHugh has announced that Gweedore Celtic FC has secured almost €45,000 funding.
“We want to encourage people to get involved in sports and help clubs to retain their athletes and members,” the Minister said.
The funding has been approved through Roinn na Gaeltachta. The investment will go towards improvements at the pitch for football nets and fencing.
The Minister for Education and Skills also praised the club for the opportunities it offers young people in sports and leisure and also to promote the Irish language.
“Má tá cumainn spóirt chun lúthchleasaithe a mhealladh agus a choinneáil, caithfidh siad áiseanna caighdeánacha a chur ar fáil do gach duine,” a dúirt sé.
“Tá áthas orm,” a dúirt sé, “go mbeidh Plean Teanga i bhfeidhm ag an gCumann a chuideoidh le cur chun cinn na Gaeilge sa chumann féin agus sa cheantar máguaird.”
