In the year of boxing success, the grants to boxing clubs (though welcome) seem quite low when compared to rugby, soccer and GAA clubs.
Why do clubs which have membership/subs costing 385, eg Tennis Clubs like Sutton get, 296k of public funds? (Ditto golf clubs)
What did Islandeady Clay Pigeon shooting club do to justify its 10k?
I can't notice any great uplift to sporting organisations for those with disabilities, which might have been expected after the Paralympics? (Dochas in limerick did get a couple of grand).
Who decides these? What is the criteria? Could a minister do a Reilly on it and move up projects in his constituency? (In fairness to Michael Ring, that does not appear to be the case from this list)
