Welcoming news of the funding, Louth TD, Fergus O'Dowd said, “this is great news for the local recipients and will no doubt provide invaluable support to older people across county Louth. Over the recent covid 19 pandemic we have seen just how important it is for all age groups to remain physically active but in particular for older people for their overall health and mental strength.”
The Grant Scheme is part of Age & Opportunity’s Active programme, funded by Sport Ireland, and delivered nationwide with the support of Local Sports Partnerships and the HSE. Age & Opportunity Active is the national programme for sport and physical activity for older people, funded by Sport Ireland and the HSE.
