The majority of support for grassroots sport is delivered through our Arm’s Length Body, Sport England. Since 2019 Sport England has provided over £17,000 of funding to support Gaelic football.

The redevelopment of Páirc na hÉireann was funded by Highways England, recognising that nearby roadworks impacted one of the site’s pitches.
