Sports Inclusion

Many People with diasabilties are precluded from participating in sports and physical activity.

The Sports Inclusion Disabiltiy Officer Programme helps to address the imbalance in opportunities for people with disabilties to particpate in Sport and Physical Activity through working in partnership with all stakeholders.


The Sports Partnership have developed a Disability Forum which we see as a strong link between the LSP and disability clubs/organisations in Limerick City and County.

Representatives will tackle issues of mutual interest, discover methods of overcoming problems and identify best practice.  The Disability Forum allows for better communication between disability clubs/organisations and acts as a coordinated voice for local level disability clubs/organisations throughout Limerick.

Membership of the Forum is as follows:


Mick Kelliher Special Olympics
Joe McCarthy Special Schools
Dr. Elizabeth O'Mahony Limerockers Cru
Paul Ryan IWA
Siobhán Garvey Enable Ireland
Steven Casey Mid West Spina Bifida
Val Real National Learning Network
Denis Griffin Down Syndrome
Christine Keane West Limerick Children's Services
Caroline Lane NCBI
