Commenting Minister O’Brien said, “This is a great day for sports clubs and community groups right around the country and I want to congratulate all of the successful applicants who I know worked extremely hard on their applications.
“I would particularly like to thank my local Councillors, Councillors Brigid Manton and Darragh Butler in Swords, Councillor Adrian Henchy and Brian Dennehy in Rush-Lusk and Councillor Eoghan O’Brien in Howth-Malahide who have worked closely with me to assist clubs in their applications.
