Resized Speak Infographic 2017Welcome 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.

Dún Laoghaire Rathdown Sports Partnership held their 2nd Daily Mile Schools Event in Deer Park, Mount Merrion on Wednesday 25th April 2018. Similar to last year, this annual event falls during Active Schools Week, tying in nicely with activity programmes within the local schools. Over 200 students across 4 schools took to the paths of Deer Park and ran side by side with their fellow students to the finish gantry where they were awarded a medal. This however, was not the first time they have run a mile.

Since the beginning of the school year in September, Dún Laoghaire Rathdown Sports Partnership have watched 22 schools from all around the County take to their playgrounds, fields or local parks to run a mile each day. The feedback from the schools has been astonishing since the programme was introduced in this County 2 years ago. Teachers have reported improved concentration levels, improved fitness & wellbeing, and improved rapport within the class.

Have your say 2We'd be very grateful for your view /input on what you believe dlr Sports Partnership could do to help increase participation in sports and physical activity for everyone in the County.

Please take 3 - 5 minutes max to complete our survey and help get Dlr more active. The findings will be reflected in our New Strategy 2018 - 2022.
