The single biggest allocation for rugby went to the Munster Branch who received three million Euros towards the redevlopment of Thomond Park.
AIB League runners up, Garryowen received EURO 200,000 while a number of junior clubs also benefitted including Ashbourne Rugby club who have invested heavily in their club facilities in the last few years.
Speaking in the Government Press Centre, Minister Cullen TD said: "Today's allocations build upon the excellent work of previous rounds of the Programme and continue to support dedicated community spirit and reward local volunteerism.
