Information on all applications received from County Donegal under the 2012 Sports Capital Programme including the amount of funding sought is set out in the table.   

The Department is writing to all unsuccessful local applicants with details of how their applications were assessed.  Given the limited resources it is not possible for me to fund all valid applications.  The reason(s) why applications were deemed invalid is being outlined to the relevant applicants in the Department's correspondence referred to above.  There are several reasons why an application might be deemed invalid and compiling such information into tabular format for all such applications in Donegal would involve a disproportionate amount of work.  Some of the reasons why applications were deemed invalid include:  

- Insufficient own funding or no evidence of own funding

- Work on project already commenced

- No evidence of freehold/leasehold/letter from landlord

- No quotations/estimates submitted

- No evidence of planning permission or application for same or letter from technical supervisor stating that planning permission is not needed

The Department is writing to all unsuccessful applicants under the 2012 Sports Capital Programme with details of the results of the assessment of their application.  The reasons why applications were deemed invalid is being outlined to the relevant applicants. 

The application referred to by the Deputy was deemed invalid on two grounds under the terms and conditions of the Sports Capital Programme.  Firstly, the applicant had insufficient own funding to meet the minimum matching funding requirements of the Programme and secondly; the applicant did not provide evidence that they had adequate title to the property where the proposed facility was to be developed.
