Inland Fisheries Ireland is encouraging angling clubs in Tipperary to apply for funding under its 2022 Sponsorship Programme with a fund of  €30,000 .

Suzanne Campion, Head of Business Development at Inland Fisheries Ireland, says “In 2022, IFIs top priority is supporting projects and events that encourage more young people and beginners to try angling sustainably, as well as initiatives that help grow sustainable angling tourism throughout Ireland.”

She added: “As more people in Tipperary enjoy the health and wellbeing benefits of being outdoors, mainly driven by Covid-19 guidelines, we are seeing greater levels of interest in angling nationally.

The programme will remain open for applications until Friday, January 21st 2022.

Meanwhile, applications for equipment, staff support and biosecurity assistance can be made to Inland Fisheries Ireland throughout the year. More information about the Sponsorship Programme is available by visiting the Inland Fisheries Ireland website at www.fisheriesireland.ie
