€200,000 for KDL HQ All-Weather Pitch Statement by Brendan Griffin TD (FG) Kerry Friday, November 21st, 2014 KERRY Fine Gael TD, Brendan Griffin, has welcomed the allocation of €200,000 in funding from the Department of Sport for a full-size all-weather soccer pitch at the Kerry District League Headquarters at Mounthawk Park, Tralee. The Sports Capital funding was announced by Minister for Sport, Michael Ring, as part of a €1.2 million allocation to six soccer organisations nationally. Deputy Griffin said: “This funding is a great boost to all the clubs participating in Kerry soccer. As someone who has played many times at Mounthawk Park with Mainebank FC, I am delighted that the Kerry District League will now be able to provide this facility for all the clubs that play there. “I wish the KDL continued success and commend all involved for their valuable contribution to Kerry communities. “As someone who has been a vocal advocate of an annual Sports Capital Programme, I hope to be able to help secure further funding for Kerry in 2015 from the €29.1 million nationwide allocation that was secured in Budget 2015. I urge all Kerry sporting organisations in need of capital funding to apply to this scheme when it opens in the new year and I would be happy to support any worthy applications when the time comes.” Ends Further info from Brendan on 087 6528841
