In May of this year the Federation of Irish Sport hosted the return of the Irish Sport Industry Awards, in association with Clubforce at The Westin Hotel. Here is a flavour of the awards night and this special gathering of the sports sector.
The Federation of Irish Sport comprises 81 National Governing Bodies and 29 Local Sports Partnerships. Representing over 70 different sports, ranging from mass participation to niche sporting activities, our members also include multi-sport organisations such as the Olympic Federation of Ireland, Community Games, Vision Sports Ireland, Special Olympics Ireland, Paralympics Ireland, Irish Wheelchair Association Sport, Triathlon Ireland, Deaf Sports Ireland, CARA Sport, Student Sport Ireland, Ireland Active and Pentathlon Ireland.
As The Voice of Irish Sport, one of our key goals is to promote the multifaceted benefits of participation in sport and physical activity. The annual Irish Sport Industry Awards provides a platform for us to celebrate the economic value of sport to the country. The awards also recognise those contributing across the sports industry from governing bodes, sports partnerships, rights holders, sponsors, PR agencies, media, key stakeholders to those in the business of sport. We’re already excited about next year’s event!
