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 19 co-funded officers across boxing, cricket, 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 An tArdmhéara Críona Ní Dhálaigh o n 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.
