Government Funding Launched for Outdoor Adventure Projects


The Government have today (Friday) announced a major pot of funding aimed at supporting outdoor adventure companies across the country.

Land, water and air based activities such as para-gliding, will be eligible for some of the €15 million of funding under the 2022 Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme (ORIS).

The funding will see the development of natural amenities such as mountains, lakes, beaches, bogs, walkways, greenways and blueways – an area that Tipperary Tourism is seeking to expand as part of the county’s tourism offering.

The 2022 scheme will provide investment from €30,000 for small scale projects up to €50,000 for larger scale projects.

Applications will be managed by local authorities, local development companies and state agencies such as Coillte in each county.
