50 sporting organisations to benefit from €13,000 of funding

50 sports groups in Donegal are to receive €13,000 in funding to encourage older people to get more active.

The initiative aims to improve the health and well being of older people across the county by providing them with opportunities to engage in physical activity and sport.

In welcoming the announcement, Government Chief Whip Minister Joe McHugh says; "The success of this scheme shows what can be achieved with a small investment and the importance of funding sport and physical activity, at any age."
