Lavey GAA receives Texaco support

The funding will be used to develop Lavey GAA's club facilities

Cavan’s Lavey GAA Club, county winners in the recent Texaco Support for Sport initiative, has been presented with a cheque for €5,000, which will be used to further develop its facilities. Planned developments include the construction of a new retaining wall and fence, new ball stops and drainage work in the carpark area.

The presentation was made to the east Cavan club 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 €130,000 set aside for €5,000 grants for 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.

Last year, under the same scheme, St Patrick’s GAA club in Arvagh were the county winners.

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