The initiatives also include actively encouraging green travel by walking and cycling to the club grounds, an action day or a children’s poster competition.
The seven winning clubs are: Lusk United AFC, Portmarnock AFC, St. Ita’s, St. Mochta’s, Swords Celtic, Garda Association F.C. and Garda Westmanstown Rugby Club. Each club will receive payments of €2,000 to be invested in their projects.AnnMarie Farrelly, Chief Executive of Fingal County Council, said: “I wish to congratulate all the clubs on their winning applications and wish them all the best with implementing the projects in the months ahead.” The Executive Committee of Lusk United expressed their gratitude to those involved for making this happen and they look forward to working with all stakeholders, particularly Fingal County Council, in implementing the key deliverables of their plan over the months ahead.
