M. Lowry TD Welcomes Youth Club Equipment Scheme Funding

Deputy Michael Lowry TD has welcomed funding of €106,351, made available today, for the county of Tipperary, under the Local Youth Club Equipment Scheme.

The Scheme was initially developed to support the work of youth volunteers, to enhance the experience of members, and to provide vital equipment to local youth clubs and groups. The funding was provided through the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappone T.D., and the Scheme is administered by Tipperary Education and Training Boards.

These grants will assist clubs in the purchase of camping, gaming, sports and audio visual equipment. Other clubs, for example, have used the grant, in the past, to purchase musical equipment, latter which would have otherwise remained unavailable to members.
