In 2015, Irish Sport designated Clarisford Park as the Community Sports Hub for Co. Clare
This designation recognises and supports the mission of Clarisford Ltd which stems from the 3 core values of;
– Sport & Recreation
– Quality of Life, and
– Collaboration & Partnership
Allocation of Dormant Account funding was secured through Clare Sports Partnership and Sport Ireland towards a Community Sports Hub in Clarisford Park. Capital expenditure i.e. Sports Floor, disabled access and dressing room showers were completed in addition to the delivery of sport and physical activity participation programmes to encourage people in the community to become more active. Through the Community Sports Hub Co-ordinator Nollaig O’Sullivan, programmes such as Killaloe Ballina Business Walking Challenge, Operation Transformation Walk, Leaving Certificate Physical Activity and Wellbeing Project in St. Anne’s Community School, Muscle Strengthening for Elderly and Mental Skills Workshops within sporting groups and support networks are being undertaken. The Healthy Killaloe Ballina Report was launched in July 2017
