Swim Ireland is delighted to announce that we have successfully awarded a further 10 clubs a total of €36,000 in grant funding to support them through a challenging year.

This has been made up of grant funding support and funding for COVID-19 related expenses. Having spoken to a number of these clubs first-hand, we are aware how much this will support the clubs to continue and maintain the level of offerings they have been able to provide their members.

As highlighted to us, “it is a very welcome Christmas present for our club and members”.

We are extremely grateful for the continued support of Sport Ireland, the Federation of Irish Sport, Ministers Catherine Martin TD and Jack Chambers TD from the Department of Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht, and before them Ministers Shane Ross and Brendan Griffin TD at the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport.

This news comes just days after learning that Swim Ireland will receive an additional €50,000 in funding from Sport Ireland through the COVID-19 Supplementary Grant Scheme, which has also allocated a further €700,000 in funding to swimming pools.

Criteria for Round 2 funding, allocated as shown below, is laid out HERE. Applications for funding are presently closed.

This fund was only available to our clubs in the Republic of Ireland, but Sport Northern Ireland recently announced launch of the Sports Sustainability Fund, which Swim Ulster is helping our clubs in Northern Ireland access.

The deadline for applications is January 12. For more information, please email: sustainabilityfund@swimulster.net.
