On Thursday 30th of August the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport released details of the Sports Capital Programme 2018. Here’s a link to the press release: Sports Capital Programme 2018

Mountaineering Ireland as an NGB and a number of Mountaineering Ireland affiliated clubs were successful in their applications under the Sports Capital Programme 2017. Mountaineering Ireland clubs are eligible to apply for funding through the Sports Capital Programme 2018. We would encourage you to consider if your club would benefit from funding through the Sports Capital Programme 2018 and to contact Mountaineering Ireland if you need any assistance with your application.

To begin the registration process please visit the Sports Capital Programme website:

There are a number of key deadlines to be aware of in order for your application to be eligible, these are:

1. Deadline for registering your organisation – October 5th, 5:00pm. A guide to registration is available via the following link: Sports Capital Programme – Guide To Registration

2. Deadline for submitting your application – October 19th 5:00pm. A guide to submitting an application is available via the following link: 2018 Sports Capital Programme – Guide To Making An Application

3. In advance of registering your organisation you need to get a Tax Registration Number. You can do this via the form available at the following link: Tax Registration for Voluntary Non-Profit Making Organisations

4. As part of the application you will need to submit Evidence of Own Funding (you will need to provide a minimum of 5% own funding). You will need to provide at least one statement from a financial institution. The statement must include the name of the club, the details of the financial institution and the closing balance of the statement.

As most Mountaineering Ireland clubs do not have any capital infrastructure, it is most likely that your application will come under the heading of ‘Non-personal sports equipment’. Examples of non-personal sports equipment would be climbing equipment, ropes, ice-axes, crampons etc.

If you need any further advice of help with your application please contact Ruth Whelan or Damien O Sullivan at the Mountaineering Ireland office. Their contact details are:
