The Awards recognise and reward excellence in Sport, whilst simultaneously highlighting the contribution of Sport in Ireland. Waterford Sports Partnership was shortlisted under the 20×20 category- an initiative that promotes female participation in Sport.

The award we received was for our Soccer for Girls Programme – a collaboration with the FAI, Presentation Girls National School and Our Lady of Mercy National School. We are very proud to have won this prestigious award and we would like to thank the two schools and the FAI for working with us. A special thanks to Brian O’Neill our Youth Sports Development Officer who was the driving force behind this programme.
