Funding boost for Isaac!

Isaac Oliver, Ballinasloe, who was a recipient of the Kingspan Kickstart Sports Fund.

An amateur athlete based in County Roscommon has received a €1,000 uplift courtesy of Kingspan, a global leader in high-performance insulation and building envelope solutions.

The Kingspan Kickstart Sports Fund launched last year, with support from Irish professional golfer, Shane Lowry, to provide support for grassroots level athletes and community sports clubs, and has already awarded a total of €90,000 to successful applicants across Ireland.

As part of the fund, Isaac Oliver, Ballinasloe, has been awarded €1,000, which will help to provide sporting equipment, training and other necessary resources, alongside offering assistance with any campaigns that are currently underway.

Playing golf since he was two-years-old, Isaac has a string of accolades to his name, including Munster U-16 champion, Connacht U-14 Order of Merit, and is currently part of the U-16 high performance panel.

With a desire to continue progressing in his sporting career, Isaac is planning to use the funding to pay for lessons, travel expenses, equipment and strength and conditioning sessions.
