€20k funding for groups to promote physical activity for older people

ALMOST €20,000 in funding is set to be injected into South Dublin County for groups which promote physical activity for older people.

A combined initiative from Age and Opportunity and Sport Ireland, the Age and Opportunity Active National Grant Scheme is set to distribute some €66,846 to 188 groups across Dublin.

While 995 groups are set to receive grants totalling €514,120 nationwide, over 30 groups and organisations which promote sport and physical activity in older age-groups in South Dublin County will benefit from the scheme.

This grant scheme demonstrates the wide scope and ambition of older people across Ireland where keeping healthy and active is concerned.

Walking, weightlifting, night kayaking, dancing, rowing, yoga, orienteering, swimming, cycling, kurling and bowling are just some of the activities the grant will fund.

The Grant Scheme is part of Age & Opportunity’s Active programme, funded by Sport Ireland, and delivered nationwide with the support of Local Sports Partnerships and the HSE.
