Let’s Get Back to Sport, because like our athletes, we Can’t Stop Now.

Special Olympics Ireland is delighted to fully support the Sport Ireland and Healthy Ireland’s “Let’s Get Back” Marketing Campaign. Kicking off today, Monday October 4th, this powerful campaign is aimed at supporting all National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGB’s) as we and our stakeholders make the transition towards living with COVID-19 and the much anticipated “Return to Activities”.

The objectives are to encourage both athletes and volunteers to get back to sport through a comprehensive marketing plan, which includes TV, Radio, Digital, and Influencer advertising, running through this last quarter of the year until December.

We are also looking forward to using this campaign to put a spotlight on our own community’s needs, such as athlete retention, volunteer recruitment and preparing your club for retuning to activities.

You can check out our comprehensive resources here, which includes specific club and athlete information. We would also encourage you to refer a friend to seek out one of the many fun and rewarding volunteering opportunities our clubs across the island of Ireland have available here.

We are also very proud to announce that Special Olympics athletes Laura Jane Dunne, Andrew Murray and Mark Claffey from Blackrock Flyers Special Olympics Club feature in very powerful campaign video and includes 17 different sports.

If you need to speak to a member of the Special Olympics team please do reach out to your regional office.
