Councillor says Finn Harps funding a ‘once off’

A Councillor says the decision by Donegal County Council to grant €20,000 to Finn Harps will not be repeated.

Cllr Martin Harley and Cllr Barry O’Neill met with the Finn Harps board at the weekend with the club asking if the local authority would help with funding.

Finn Harps must raise a total of €48,000 by December  21st in order to meet a series of financial commitments so that the club is able to meet the criteria to gain a licence to compete in Division One of the Airtricity League next season.

Finn Harps has already raised half of the  remaining €28,000 and are optimistic of raising the remainder through a series of functions.

Councillor Martin Harley has thanked the County Manager for facilitating his request:
