Over €800,000 has been put towards the development of the Cavan Regional Sports Campus.
The announcement was made by the Department of Sport under the Large Scale Sport Infrastructure Fund.
The state-of-the-art campus will see the construction of an indoor facility, with outdoor pitches and an athletics track.
The €837,000 grant was part of Stream One funding, which is to get projects developed to the point where an application for construction work can be submitted.
The news was welcomed by local Minister Heather Humphreys who said it will play “a significant role” in the community.
