The Manager of the Dublin City Sport & Wellbeing Partnership, Shauna McIntyre, has been selected as the latest addition to the Federation of Irish Sport’s Board of Directors. Her election was ratified at the Federation’s Annual General Meeting, which took place at Irish Sport HQ on Wednesday, 27th July.

Shauna will replace Aideen O’Connor as the Member Category 5 repressentative on the Federation’s Board of Directors. Aideen informed the Board of her decision to resign from the Board earlier this month, so we would like to take this opportunity to thank Aideen for her outstanding commitment and contribution to the Federation over the past two years.

Shauna joined the Dublin City Sport & Wellbeing Partnership in April 2015. Prior to taking up her current role, Shauna held various other positions of general management in the sport and health sectors, including management positions in both a health centre and three sport/fitness centres.

Shauna has a passion for sport and physical activity, and during her career she has witnessed first-hand the many economic, health and social benefits it can offer to society. In her role as Manager of the Dublin City Sport & Wellbeing Partnership, Shauna is determined to lead her team in building and expanding upon the very positive work already being carried out in the promotion of sport in Ireland.

She believes that strategic partnerships, continued investment, engaging with the local communities and participation levels are vital elements in the continued growth of sport in Ireland.
