Garrycastle LGFA receives ‘Texaco Support for Sport’ initiative funding

Garrycastle LGFA club, county winners in the recent Texaco Support for Sport initiative, has been presented with a cheque for €5,000 which will be ‘invested in training equipment through the purchase of bibs and jerseys for use in team building activities’.

Based in Athlone, the club is focused on the objective of ‘player retention’ and the creation of what it calls a ‘safe and inclusive environment ‘with an emphasis on fun and participation by all.

Under the scheme – similar to that which proved successful last year when the Westmeath county award was presented to Ringtown Camogie club – the presentation was made to Garrycastle LGFA by Valero Energy (Ireland ) Limited, the company that markets fuel in Ireland under the Texaco brand.

Now in its second year, the Texaco Support for Sport initiative sees an annual fund of EUR130,000 set aside for allocation in equal amounts of EUR5,000 to successful applicants chosen on a county-by-county basis. Overseeing the adjudication process was Texaco Support for Sport ambassador, former Irish rugby international and broadcaster, Donncha O’Callaghan.

Entries to the Texaco Support for Sport 2023 initiative will open this Autumn.
