RE: Ukraine Support

On behalf of the Minister and the Department of Sport, Sport Ireland is seeking assistance from
the sporting community to support those coming to Ireland from Ukraine.
Sports organisations may be in a position to contribute to Ireland’s humanitarian response at a
national, regional and local level.

The immediate need is for suitable accommodation and facilities. In the longer term, sport will

Ireland recognise that many Governing Bodies and their affiliated clubs have already been
proactive in this regard.

Comprehensive details of the support required and how best to contribute are included below.
Sport Ireland would ask that this information is distributed to clubs, affiliates and any other
relevant stakeholders.

National Governing Bodies and other Sport Ireland Funded Bodies seeking further information
on how they can assist at a National level can contact Sport Ireland directly.
Support in all forms is welcome and encouraged.
