Written Answers. - Grant Payment.

207. Mr. J. Higgins asked the Minister for Education the reason a sport and social club (details supplied) in County Mayo which has done a tremendous amount in developing its own facilities has not been approved for grant assistance under her Department's recreational facilities scheme. [2736/94]

Minister for Education (Ms Bhreathnach): My Department received an application from the club in question. In excess of 1,400 applications nationally were received under the recreational facilities scheme and in view of the limit on the funds available for the scheme this year it was possible to assist only a proportion of the projects. A grant allocation will be considered in the event of funds being made available for the scheme in 1995.
