On Tuesday 28th of May, the Federation of Irish Sport facilitated an education workshop with Sport Dispute Solutions Ireland. The seminar, titled ‘An education seminar on Sport Disciplinary Procedures and Appeal processes’, provided a welcome refresh of the importance of process and procedure around discipline, grievance, selection and appeals. 

The day, chaired by SDSI Board Member Declan McPhillips, saw contributions from Brian Murray – Swim Ireland, Susan Ahern – Barrister, Colm MacCarvill and Morgan Crowe of Leman’s Solicitors. The session, held in Sport HQ, provided members with the opportunity to learn from case studies, see examples of best practise and ask specific questions most relevant to their governing body or organisation.

The day is the first of a series of education seminars being run by SDSI and facilitated by the Federation of Irish Sport.
