About The Federation of Irish Sports
The Federation of Irish Sport (the “Federation”) was established in 2002 by the National Governing Bodies of Sport (“NGBs”). The reasons behind the foundation of the Federation included the under representation of the sector given the significant number of Irish people involved with sport, the increased investment in Irish Sport, the new projects coming on stream at a very high rate, the need for advice and consultancy, the increased pressure on NGBs and the need for a “voice for Irish Sport.”
