Byrne welcomes Ballyfermot sports funding

Fine Gael TD for Dublin South Central, Catherine Byrne, has welcomed the significant funding allocation for sporting facilities at Le Fanu Park in Ballyfermot.

“This is great news for the people of Ballyfermot who use the sporting facilities at Le Fanu Park. The Minister of State for Sport, Michael Ring, has announced €123,198 will be spent to provide new changing room facilities at La Fanu Park.

“It is very encouraging to see that the Government is committed to investing in local sports facilities, despite our current difficult economic situation. A number of local-authority backed projects across Dublin will benefit in this latest round of capital grants.

“Investing in sport is investing in our local communities. By maintaining and upgrading facilities we can boost participation in sport and provide our young people with a very important and positive outlet.

“This funding will make a huge difference to Ballyfermot, and it means local people can have confidence in the long term future of Le Fanu Park as a vital local amenity.
