Sport fund grants fury.

Byline: By MIRROR REPORTER

THE Labour Party has slammed the Government's handling of sports grants after it emerged EUR2.4million went to a minister's constituency.

The party's sports spokesman Jack Wall said the public should be more aware of how the EUR21million sports fund is dished out.

But Finance Minister Brian Cowen denied there was anything unusual about the amount awarded to his Laois/Offaly constituency.

He said: "I reject the contention that something can be viewed in that way."
