How the government (ROI) funded hill sports.
The Irish Times https://www.irishtimes.com/sport/something-for-everyone-where-does-the-56m-in-sports-capital-funding-go-1.3311407

Some relevant categories are:
Hillwalking 145,000 / 4
Mountaineering 11,800 /2
Rock Climbing 800 / 1

For comparison, another relatively small outdoor sport:
Orienteering 1,000 / 1

And also for comparison a "community" sport
Pitch and Putt 241,962 / 24

For larger sports:
Gaelic Football 5,845,493 / 150
Gaelic Games 15,544,858 / 349
