Green Party Senator Róisín Garvey said today, “I am delighted to announce more funding for swimming pools on behalf of my Green Party colleague Minister Catherine Martin’s Department.

Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport & Media Catherine Martin TD has provided this aid through Covid Funding to support the sport sector.

Ireland Active was appointed by Sport Ireland to administer the swimming pool grant scheme, supported by partners Swim Ireland.
