Leitrim Sports Partnership is establishing a North and South Leitrim Sports Forum to represent all of the various sports clubs and community groups in the area and will hold two Sports Forums in the county during November.

Every sports club/group based in the County can nominate one/two individuals to represent it on the Sports Forum, where members will tackle issues of mutual interest, discover methods of overcoming local community issues; look at funding opportunities for clubs/groups and identifying best practice in club development etc.

This group allows for better communication between clubs and community groups and act as a coordinated voice for local level sports clubs in the County. Leitrim sport partnership will advise on how they can help, support, and advise best practice in sport development.

The North Leitrim Sport Forum will be held on Wednesday, November 2, in the Bee Park Resource Centre in Manorhamilton at 7pm while the South Leitrim Sports Forum will be held a week later on Wednesday November 9, at 7.15pm in the Canoe Donoghue Hall, Mohill.

LSP is inviting one or two officers from each club/community group in the area to attend their respective meetings. Both evenings will commence with a coffee/tea and sandwiches with ample time being given for Q&A and discussion during the meeting.

Leitrim Sports Partnership (LSP) works to promote participation, inclusion and coordination in sport at a local level. LSP aids the continuous development of all the clubs and community groups that are located within the County.

This is achieved by providing information in relevant areas, offering education and training programmes to improve the knowledge of the clubs and their members and implement programmes which provide adequate assistance to help the clubs and community groups grow and develop further.

All clubs/groups are asked to reply no later no later than Friday October 21, to cmulligan@leitrimcoco.ie or 0719650498.

If you require additional information about the meeting, please don’t hesitate to get in contact. Please let us know of any issues arising in your club/ issues you wish to discuss in this meeting. Please advise us of any special mobility or dietary requirements you may have.
