More than €750,000 will be spent on improving G.A.A. club grounds across the province this year after being successfully approved for funding.
A total of €763,500 has been designated for club development funding by the G.A.A. in Croke Park.
Leinster G.A.A. has assessed submissions for financial support and drawn up the list of clubs who will benefit, and these cheques were handed out by Croke Park to the respective clubs in recent weeks.
Last week a special cheque presentation ceremony was carried out at Leinster G.A.A. headquarters in Áras Laighean where 21 clubs were presented with their cheques by Kathy Slattery, the G.A.A's National Finance Manager, and by Leinster Chairman John Horan.
In all, there are 106 clubs from across all twelve counties in Leinster who have been approved for this G.A.A. funding and will use it together with their own local fundraising efforts and grant aid from State agencies to carry out their plans.
The eleven Wexford beneficiaries are: HWH-Bunclody, €30,000; St. Mary's (Maudlintown), €25,000; Castletown-Liam Mellows, €13,000; Ballygarrett-Réalt na Mara, €8,000; Taghmon-Camross, €7,000; Buffers Alley, €6,000; Our Lady's Island, €6,000; Fethard, €5,500; Bannow-Ballymitty, €3,500; Sarsfields, €2,600; Kilmore, €1,800.
