The answer very clearly is absolutely not. The programme was open to all types of facilities with a hall that is used by the local community. Applications were received from church halls, GAA clubs, Masonic halls, community groups and many others. This funding cannot be used to purchase sporting infrastructure, such as nets or pitches, but sports clubs have applied for money to improve the fabric of their halls to benefit the local community. The scheme was very much open to everybody to apply. Criteria were used to determine which applicants were successful.
