In total €2.8m was earmarked for clubs like our own who would not have the financial reserves to overcome the issues associated with the temporary closure of the course.

The club has been awarded a grant of €20,000 which is very welcome and will help plug some of the gaps that are emerging on a weekly basis.

Thanks to the members of management who prepared our application for this support.
