Covid-19 Message from Dublin City Sport & Wellbeing Partnership 

Dublin City Sport & Wellbeing Partnership programmes delivered across the city have been temporarily suspended. 


 The purpose of the Partnership has always been to promote and support people in our communities to partake in sport and physical activity regardless of age, gender or ability and this remains our goal regardless of these unforeseen and very challenging times.


Maintaining our health and happiness in the company of our loved ones at home is very important right now and we are dedicated to staying connected to everyone in our communities through our website, social media channels and information leaflets in the next few weeks.


We are here for you. 

Dublin City Sport & Wellbeing Partnership

The Dublin City Sport and Wellbeing Partnership is responsible for the administration of the “Sport for Young People – Small Grants Scheme”, which was previously administered by the City of Dublin Vocational Education Committee and more recently, the Dublin City Sports Network.

Dublin City Council’s Sport and Recreation Section currently spends €15million a year on programmes and services in the city which are delivered through our facilities, our team of 18 dedicated Sports Officers and 20 co-funded officers across boxing, cricket, rowing, rugby and soccer.

In order to build and expand upon the very positive work already happening, the Dublin City Sport and Wellbeing Partnership (the Partnership) has been created and was formally launched by former Lord Mayor Críona Ní Dhálaigh on Wednesday 18th November in City Hall.

The purpose of the Partnership is:
  • To improve the quality of life of people living in and working in Dublin city regardless of age or ability.
  • To provide opportunities for people living in, working in and visiting Dublin city to partake in sports and physical activities through facilities, infrastructure, services, programmes and events.
  • To have Dublin city recognised as the national and international leader in sports and wellbeing The Partnership is led by Dublin City Council and guided by a high level board of advisors chaired by Irish Grand Slam winning rugby captain Fiona Coghlan

Fiona is joined by Michael Dawson from Leinster Rugby, John Costello from Dublin GAA, Richard Fahey from the FAI, Sarah Keane from Swim Ireland, Sinead McNulty from Dublin Institute of Technology, James Galvin from the Federation of Irish Sport, Rob Hartnett from Sport for Business, Brendan Kenny, Seamus McGrattan and Maurice Ahern from Dublin City Council. Fitter, happier and healthier people will be at the core of what the Partnership will do into the future by taking a more strategic and consolidated approach to how sport is delivered across the city with an enhanced emphasis on health and wellbeing.
