Well-known local West Donegal soccer outfit Keadue Rovers FC have secured a much needed funding boost.
Funding of €33,000 was approved by Jack Chambers TD, Minister of State at the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, yesterday.
Local Fianna Fail Councillor Noreen Mc Garvey has warmly welcomed the news.
The club has undertaken substantial work over the last few years and this money will allow them to erect a perimeter fence around the new pitch and a smaller wooden spectator fence to enhance the works already carried out.
Ms McGarvey said “Over the last 125 years the club has been to the forefront in providing footballing facilities at Central park Keadue. Through the decades they have produced many successful teams and continue to mentor the youth of the area.
“All of the committee work on a voluntary basis, many who have served the club for years. I commended everyone for their trojan work and commitment to the club.
“I thank Minister Chambers for his support to this project and wish the club many more years of great success.”
