Cause

Sport allows athletes develop both physically and emotionally, they make new friends, realise their dreams, and know they can fit in.

Response

Special Olympics Ireland is a sports organisation for people with an intellectual disability, but it provides athletes with far more than the physical benefits of sport. Special Olympics enables them to achieve and win not only in sport but in life too.

Projects in 2021

  1. Special Olympics Ireland currently offer 15 sports (13 Summer & 2 Winter) plus a Motor Activities Training Programme. Within the sports programme, we provide training and information on coaching, competition development, and much more.

  2. Special Olympics Ireland offers training and competition opportunities for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, who train, compete, and learn to win and lose.

  3. We run training programmes for all our volunteers who dedicate their time to us.
