KRSP Grants & Support Programmes

KRSP aims to increase participation in sport, recreation and healthy activities across the population of Kilkenny and specifically within groups that would benefit from additional support. 

Club Development Grants 2020

Club Development Grants aim to support clubs and volunteers to increase participation in sport and physical activity in Kilkenny. They encourage the setup of new clubs and assist existing clubs to attract new participants. Minority sports, low participation groups and the target groups identified in the Kilkenny Recreation and Sports Partnership strategy will be prioritised.  Clubs must be affiliated to a Sport Ireland recognised NGB or disability organisation, that operates as a not for profit organisation.
