Texaco Ireland Announces Its Fourth ‘Support For Sport’ Recipients

Texaco has announced the names of the 25 sports clubs chosen to receive funding under the 2024 Texaco ‘Support for Sport’ initiative.

Now in its fourth year, the scheme is hosted and organised by Valero Energy (Ireland) Limited – the company that markets fuel in Ireland under the Texaco brand – with former Irish rugby international and well-known broadcaster Donncha O’Callaghan overseeing the judging.

Some €35,000 will be divided equally among seven soccer clubs, with a further €50,000 shared equally between three rugby clubs, three hurling clubs, two Gaelic football clubs, and two tennis clubs.

A further €40,000 will be divided between eight clubs, covering a range of disciplines, including archery, athletics, basketball, combined GAA games, and squash.

These clubs will receive €5,000 each.


Unfortunately, no qualifying entry was received from Co. Sligo this year, and so the €5,000 due to go to a deserving club therein will remain unpresented.

Congratulating the winners and praising the work of club officials and volunteers, the director of Irish operations at Valero Energy (Ireland) Limited, James Twohig, acknowledged “the invaluable contribution” that sports clubs make to the heart of community life in Ireland.

Twohig said, “The purpose of our Texaco ‘Support for Sport’ initiative is to help ease financial pressure on sports clubs throughout the country, and, since its inception, we are proud to have distributed over €500,000 to a variety of more than 100 Irish sports clubs, to help them continue to play a pivotal role within their communities.”

Texaco will issue an invitation to enter the 2025 Texaco ‘Support for Sport’ initiative in the autumn.

Entries are open to all clubs, including those whose previous applications were unsuccessful.
