Getting Limerick Active

About

The aim of Limerick Sports Partnership is “Getting Limerick Active” together with:

  • Increasing participation in sport.
  • Ensuring that local resources are used to best effect.
  • A mechanism to co-ordinate the efforts of all key influencers to further develop sporting opportunities for local communities.
  • A vital link between the needs of local people, the work of other sports organisations/officers and national agencies and state agencies.

Limerick Sports Partnership is based in UL Sport Arena at the University of Limerick.  This location provides us with access to a weekly footfall of 12-15,000 people while also creating links and relationships from grassroots, education and professional sport.

The LSP is an inter-agency and multi-sector organisation established as a limited company with representatives from all the main statutory, community and voluntary fora represented on a dedicated Board of Directors.
