The Federation of Irish Sport is made up of National Governing Bodies of sport as well as the 26 Local Sports Partnerships that operate around the country working with Local authorities to implement a wide variety of sporting programmes.

Each month we carry a round-up featuring some of the many activities that are taking place around the country so that you can see just how effective they are.


Congratulations to Kildare Local Sports Partnership who were the first to sign up to the new Charter on Disability when it was launched this week by Cara, Sport Ireland and the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport


Dublin City Sport and Wellbeing Partnership will be Going GAGA again in the coming weeks as they repeat last years Getting All Girls Active campaign around the city and all over social media.

They’ve also been very active this week on the Draw taking place in Dublin for the Euro 2020 qualifiers.


Good to see Meath LSP sharing the love on projects in the county


Beat The Barge Zombie Run had 233 participants registered in the 4 km run. With lots of Families walking as well. There was a fantastic turn out of supporting spectators and a great effort for fancy dress.

Good to see the amenities been utilised with Kayaking & Canoeing also happening. At Vicarstown Canal Fest & Beat The Barge overall there were 400 people out active in body and mind

SVT Youth Leaders at Zombie Beat the Barge

22 of our SVT Youth sport leaders also received their Sport Leader Level 2 Award after the Beat the Barge run which they completed on their mid term break earlier this year. This group of sport leaders have over the past 2 years of SVT Activity & Wellness Hub come along to event after event and helped out in so many ways.

To give you an idea of some events they gladly help organise and assisted at were operation transformation, Easter camp, Bikes & Bites, Athletics Summer camp, Assisting at learn to cycle camp, 3 day cycling camp in Emo, Fossey Mountain camp out. Canoeing & Kayaking sessions and many more.

This group of young people are also nominated for the youth category in the up coming Laois Community & Voluntary Awards.
