The announcement was made by the Minister of State for Tourism & Sport Michael Ring who announced a total of €40.5 million ($55.1 million) in grants for 880 sports projects across the country.
Irish Hockey Chief Executive Mike Heskin welcomed the news: “I am delighted to see this much needed investment in Irish Hockey. I hope other clubs will take heart from this and submit applications in the next allocation of Capital Grants.
“While we will always want more, this is a good start and it is up to hockey to make sure we have our applications in for consideration. I would also encourage clubs considering applying to contact those clubs who have had success as I have no doubt they will get invaluable assistance.”
