Sport Ireland 2018 grants for Athletes

The number of elite athletes receiving the maximum funding from Sport Ireland has reduced. Just 12 of Ireland’s sporting elite have received the maximum ‘podium’ amount of funding for 2018, compared to 16 last year. Irish Athletics drop further down the list, while Paralympians now top the list.

€1.85 million was announced today under the Sport Ireland International Carding Scheme: a total of €1.9 million has been budgeted for the year with the rest to be allocated by the end of the year.

Thomas Barr, the only Athletics Ireland athlete to receive the maximum funding.
