Welcome to the eleventh annual SPEAK report. This report highlights the significant contribution
that the Sport Ireland Local Sports Partnership network is making to advance the goals of increasing
participation and overall interest in sport and physical activity by all members of our society. The importance of
this work, particularly among those sectors of society that are underrepresented in sport, cannot be overstated.
The LSP network has a specific focus on disadvantaged communities, marginalised groups, people with a
disability and women in sport.
