Launch of County Sports Participation Strategy 2013-2017
The new County Sports Participation Strategy has been officially launched by An Cathaoirleach, Cllr. Carrie Smyth with the core objective to get more people active more often.
This 5-year plan will focus on using all available resources to increase participation in physical activity and sport in the County. While catering for all ages, abilities and backgrounds there will be a focus on set target groups which have been shown to have a proportionally lower level of participation.
