Clare Sports Partnership supports Clarisford parkrun

Thank You to Clare Sports Partnership, supporters of Clarisford parkrun!

The Clare Sports Partnership was established in 2001 by the Irish Sports Council. The mission of the Irish Sports Council is to plan, lead and coordinate the sustainable development of sport in Ireland. The aims of the Irish Sports Council are to increase participation through the removal of barriers, and to make better use of facilities. The Local Sports Partnership Initiative was developed in order to help deliver these aims and to create a national structure to co-ordinate and promote the development of sport at local level. The Clare Sports Partnership provides county wide training & courses for all ages including Active Leadership, Get Walking, Meet and Train, Women in Sport and Youth Basketball.

John Sweeney, Coordinator, Clare Sports Partnership said “parkrun is a fantastic pathway of allowing people to take part in a weekly 5km event, completely free. We have seen in the recent Sports Monitor report compiled by the Irish Sports Council that running is the 3rd most popular physical activity amongst the Irish adults, with 8.5% of the population taking part regular sessions. We are delighted to be in a position to support parkrun in Killaloe and envisage that it will prove to be an extremely successful and popular event”.
