The National Rowing Centre is among 25 initiatives benefiting from a €77.4 million cash injection under the new Large Scale Sport Infrastructure Fund (LSSIF).

The Cork facility, advocated by Cork County Council and Rowing Ireland, is on the provisional list to receive €613,049 towards a total cost of €908,220 for the urgent upgrade of water training amenities (slips and pontoons and rowing course), the racing course and access.

The first set of allocations under the LSSIF was announced yesterday (Friday 10 January) following what the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport said was “a rigorous assessment process”.

All applications required support by a national governing body or local authority, with priority given to those judged likely to increase participation or audience, boost performance and/or improve access for people with disabilities.

All listed projects in Stream Two will now undergo further assessment and a due diligence procedure. Stream One allocations will be announced shortly.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
