Aquatic Sporting Bodies Move To New Irish Sport HQ

#IrishSport - Ireland's national bodies for angling, canoeing and swimming have moved into their new home on the National Sports Campus.

The new Irish Sport HQ in Blanchardstown, west Dublin was officially opened by Taoiseach Enda Kenny on Wednesday 29 May.

Among the 19 sporting bodies that have followed the FAI in relocating their headquarters to the new centre are the Angling Council of Ireland, Swim Ireland and Canoeing Ireland.

Opening the facility, the Taoiseach said: "I'm delighted that significant progress has been made in the development of the National Sport Campus over the past 12 months.

"The opening of the Irish Sport HQ and the arrival of 19 national governing bodies is a major step in the development of the campus. Today's milestone will also help foster the sense of community and co-operation which I know already exists in Irish sport."

Minister for Sport Leo Varadkar also expressed his delight at being present for the opening of the Irish Sport HQ.

"The campus is now well on the way to being a national training centre for sport," he said. "It shows what can be achieved when you work on a realistic scale, within realistic budgets, in partnership with the sporting bodies."

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
