Sean Fleming T.D., Minister of State at the Department of Finance welcomed the funding allocation by the Government of €262,956 to Laois Sports Partnership. This is part of a major Government announcement for funding in the Sports Sector.
The Minister of State Sean Fleming highlighted the important role of community sport. Throughout 2020 Laois Sports Partnership continued to help people get active in their communities by removing barriers to physical activity. They adapted quickly to the new virtual landscape and rolled out a broad range of both local and national initiatives targeted at different groups of people in Co. Laois.
“This funding will help Laois Sports Partnership continue to ensure that everyone in Laois has the opportunity to share in the enjoyment of sports activities. Not only is this important for people’s physical health. Sport also has a major positive benefit for mental health.
I know Laois Sports Partnership will make excellent use of this funding and I wish them continued success with their sports programmes in 2021.”
