The Sports Partnership has made available, a fund from which to issue grants to sports clubs that provide activities of a sporting or physical activity nature and in particular projects that attract new members or which increase participation in an activity.


Our Strategy sets out our vision for developing Sport in Monaghan.

We want everyone in Co. Monaghan regardless of age, background or level of ability to feel able to engage in sport and physical activity. Some will be young, fit and talented, but most will not. We aim to develop a sports sector that welcomes everyone, meets their needs, treats them as individuals and values them.


We want fund eligible organisations that get more people engaged in sport and meet one or more of our strategic goals:

  • Increased participations in Sport and Physical Activity
  •  Greater Access to Training and Education
  • Better club Governance


Applications are now being accepted for assistance under this fund, which is available under two strands:

Strand 1: Sports Club basic grant programme (for sports equipment / coaching courses)
Strand 2: Sports Club Participation Development Project grant programme
(Requires the submission of a development plan for a period of 10 months which will result in increased membership / participation)
Applications will be accepted for assistance under this fund, which is open to Sports clubs who are affiliated to a National Governing Body of Sport.


Closing date: Wednesday 27th November 2019 at 5pm
