Sport Ireland Publishes 2018 Local Sports Partnerships Annual Report

Published: July 1, 2019


On Friday 28th June Sport Ireland published the 12th annual Sport Ireland Local Sports Partnerships Annual Report on the national network of Local Sports Partnerships (LSPs).

The report provides an overview of the work of the 29 LSPs across the country, and highlights the innovative good practice projects and programmes that are being operated locally.

Over €21 million was invested in the LSP network, including benefit in kind funding.

Speaking at the launch of the LSP Annual Report in Killarney, Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Brendan Griffin TD said: “The work of the Local Sports Partnership Network is vital in providing opportunities and increasing participation, particularly among those sectors of society which are underrepresented in sport. This work is making a substantial contribution to the health and wellbeing of individuals, local communities and the wider population. The 2018 Annual Report of the Local Sports Partnership Network puts a spotlight on the many innovative local projects which are being undertaken across the country which provide an opportunity for all members of society, young and old, to take part in a wide range of sport and physical activities.”

Chief Executive of Sport Ireland, John Treacy, said: “One of Sport Ireland’s key priorities for the Local Sports Partnership network is the sustainable development within the local sports infrastructure; this report shows that LSPs are doing vital work with clubs and groups ensuring that structures are in place to allow people across the various target groups to participate in sport. I would like to thank all of the agencies, groups and individuals who have contributed to this report, and to those who were involved in the delivery of the programmes and projects at local level.”

Sport Ireland Director of Participation and Ethics, Dr. Una May, added: “Increasing participation across every age group and from all social backgrounds throughout Ireland is one of the key aims of Sport Ireland. The 2018 Local Sports Partnerships Annual Report highlights the many great initiatives and projects run by the LSPs to remove barriers that hinder participation in sport and physical activity. Sport Ireland, through the Local Sports Partnership network, will continue to take a strategic approach with regard to programme delivery, continuing to place a strong emphasis on monitoring and evaluation of the programmes delivered.”

Shed’s for Life Programme

Published: May 17, 2019


In April we embarked on the ‘Sheds for Life Programme. A joint initiative between Local Sports Partnerships, Get Ireland Walking and local men’s Sheds. The aim of the programme is to assist Men’s Shed members to get more physically active in their daily lives. We worked with four sheds in Waterford; Waterford Men’s Shed, Deise Men’s Shed, Waterford Estuary Men’s Shed and Dungarvan Men’s Shed. During the ten week programme the men took part in five ‘tutor led’ activities and were then went on to co-ordinate their own activities for a further five weeks.

On Monday 13th May, we coordinated a celebration day for the ten week ‘Sheds for Life’ Programme at WIT Arena. Seventeen men from the four sheds took part in a ninety minute fun activity session to mark the end of the 10 week programme which saw laughter and sweat in equal measure. The celebration day involved 25 minutes of Fun and Run hosted by Eoin Breathnach from Waterford GAA; WSP Development Officer, Peter Jones delivered some fun Go for Life games and Mark Barry from the FAI delivered some walking football to round off a great morning. It was also great to see our ‘Shed for Life’ tutors Shane Dineen, Lauren Walsh Kett and Brian O’Neill present and a big thank you to them for all of their hard work.The day was a great success and a suitable finale giving the men some more ideas to keep exercise as a natural part of their daily routine! Well done to all involved.
