The National Lottery has operated in Ireland since 1986. It is a
significant funder of governmental activities and programmes and of
voluntary and community organizations. Despite this, the way in which
the lottery operates is not well understood. Partly, this is a feature of
the way it is organized and administered, partly because no single
government department takes responsibility for its operation. Many
voluntary and community organizations are unsure as to where and how
to apply for lottery funding as they struggle to provide vital health, social
and community services.
This guide is an attempt to bridge these gaps in information. First, it
explain how the lottery operates and how government departments,
semi-State bodies and agencies and local authorities spend lottery
money. Second, the guide lists those parts of lottery funding which are
open to voluntary and community organizations to apply. It is intended
that this guide complement existing funding guides already in
This guide is published at the same time as a major research project on
the national lottery called The national lottery - ten years on (National
College of Industrial Relations, 1995). Readers interested in learning
more about the history and operation of the lottery should consult the
research report.
