Sligo Sporting Clubs Miss Out on Potential €5,000 Fund as ‘no Eligible Applications’ Received

Listen to this article

Sporting clubs in Sligo missed out on a potential €5,000 award as organisers of the annual Texaco Support for Sport initiative say no eligible applications were received.
This means that no award was made in County Sligo this year.

Each year, a sum of €130,000 is distributed in equal amounts of €5,000 to a sports club that successfully applied in each of the 26-counties.

Unfortunately, organisers have expressed regret that no eligible applications were received from Co. Sligo this year. For that reason, it was not possible to disperse the €5,000 award that would have been due to a club in the county.

In previous year, Sligo Sub Aqua Club, Kilglass Enniscrone United Football Club and Sligo Lawn Bowls Club each received the €5,000 award: Sligo Sub Aqua Club to purchase a secure roller door at its rescue boat house; Kilglass Enniscrone United FC to fund continued growth and development; and Sligo Lawn Bowls Club to upgrade facilities for wheelchair users.

The organisers say they very much hope that a winning entry will be received from the county next year and encourage sports clubs in Co. Sligo to enter. However, they ask that applicants check the rules governing entry, published on the Texaco Support for Sport website, ahead of submission.

Entries for the 2025 Texaco Support for Sport initiative will open in the Autumn for all clubs, including those whose application may have been unsuccessful previously.
