A county Limerick town received a special gift this Christmas in the shape of €96,500 in funding from the Government under the Sports Capital Regional Scheme.

Limerick TD and Minister of State Patrick O’Donovan said he was delighted that Newcastle West is to receive this funding for the development of an athletics track.

“I have been involved with Limerick City and County Council and the local voluntary athletics club on this project since it started and I am delighted now to be able to deliver this funding to Newcastle West.

This announcement brings the total Sports Capital allocation to the Limerick County Constituency last year to almost €1.7million.
