Minister Ring Launches Irish Sports Council Safe Sport App

Minister of State for Tourism and Sport Michael Ring today launched the Irish Sports Council Safe Sport App at the Code of Ethics Information Day. The app is aimed at creating greater awareness and understanding about safeguarding best practice in children’s sport.

Speaking at the launch, Minister of State for Tourism and Sport Michael Ring TD commented “I believe it is extremely important that children and young people are given the opportunity at an early age to participate in sport in a safe and positive environment to develop and enhance their physical and social skills. Participation in sport will ultimately lead to a healthier society and an overall improved quality of life.”

John Treacy, CEO Irish Sports Council commented “The Safe Sport app is based on the Irish Sports Councils Code of Ethics & Good Practice for Children’s Sports which has been adopted and implemented by National Governing Bodies of Sports, clubs and Local Sports Partnerships on an on-going basis.  It features key information regarding your role in sport to ensure children and young people’s experiences of sport are fun, enjoyable and conducted in the spirit of fair play”.

'Volunteers are priceless' 



Some of the local volunteers who assisted at 
the recent Kayaking event in Lough Rynn, Mohill

Many thanks to all the regional volunteers
who assisted at our events in 2019. As 
always without your assistance we could not 
deliver our sports programme.
