Sport Ireland Let's Get Back to Sport


Sport Ireland in partnership with Healthy Ireland has launched ‘Let’s Get Back’, a national awareness campaign encouraging the Irish public to get back involved in the sport and exercise that they love.

Sport Ireland has been working closely with National Governing Bodies, Local Sports Partnerships, volunteers and local clubs to support you all the way so that you can get back to the sport you love.

Let’s get back safely. Visit the Government of Ireland website to find the must up to date public health measures in place. 

National Governing Bodies 

National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs), recognised by Sport Ireland, are at the heart of Irish sport. With their member clubs and affiliates, NGBs organise and administer most of the organised sport in Ireland; they train and deploy coaches and volunteers; they organise representative level sport; they provide sporting opportunities and pathways leading from local sport to national and international competition.

The Sport Ireland recognised National Governing Bodies of Sport can support you to get back to sport in a safe and supportive environment.

Local Sports Partnerships 

Every day in communities across the country, Sport Ireland through its network of Local Sports Partnerships helps people to get active and removes barriers to sport and physical activity. The network is made up of 29 Local Sports Partnerships (LSPs) who are passionate about getting Ireland physically active, involved in sport and ensuring everyone in the community has the chance to be included

LSPs work with trusted professionals and valued volunteers to engage communities and deliver inclusive and impactful opportunities tailored to local needs, getting Ireland more physically active, involved in sport and improving the mental and physical health of the nation.

Your LSP is there to help you get back to sport.


Volunteers are the lifeblood of your favourite sports and activities. Without them and their dedication to sport and our local communities, we would not be able to enjoy the sports we love.

While some people may be apprehensive to returning to volunteering, Sport Ireland, local clubs and communities are there to support you all the way so that you can get back to the sport you love. If you are interested in volunteering, contact your LSP or NGB of choice for more information.
