Sports Forum Logo

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Sports Partnership works to promote participation, inclusion and coordination in sport at a local level. To support this work the Sports Forum has been established to represent all of the various sports clubs in the area.

Every sports club based in the county can nominate three individuals (one main nominee with two additional nominees) to represent it on the Sports Forum where members tackle issues of mutual interest, discover methods of overcoming issues and identifying best practice. This group allows for better communication between clubs and act as a coordinated voice for local level sports clubs in the county. In addition three individuals are nominated by this group to sit on the Board of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Sports Partnership.
