The Olympic Federation of Ireland today welcomed the Government’s budget announcement that Sport Ireland will receive an additional €36m in funding next year.

The OFI Board has welcomed the long-term planning that is now being applied to sport through the National Sports Policy, and investments like today’s budget announcement are strongly welcomed in allowing for the delivery of those policy commitments and affording some protection to the sector at this critical time.

Speaking today, Peter Sherrard, CEO of the Olympic Federation of Ireland said, “I thank the Government, Minister Catherine Martin and Minister Jack Chambers for today’s budget announcement. We understand that this additional contribution to Sport Ireland will provide much-needed support for the sector and will allow continued planning for high-performance athletes ahead of next year’s Tokyo Olympic Games and the Paris 2024 cycle. This is welcome news for our athlete community who deserve our support and are working tirelessly to represent Ireland on the global stage.”

The Olympic Federation of Ireland today welcomed the announcement made by Minister Shane Ross and Minister of State Brendan Griffin that Budget 2020 will deliver on the progressively increased funding for Irish sport set out in the 2018-2027 National Sports Policy.

Special funding earmarked to support National Governing Bodies, such as Irish Sailing, Rowing Ireland and the Irish Canoe Union, in preparation for the 2020 Olympic Games is also very welcome at this juncture, less than ten months out.

Speaking today, Peter Sherrard, CEO of the Olympic Federation of Ireland said,

“We thank the Government for continuing to honour its funding commitment to sport under Budget 2020. Sport plays a vital role in society, with major health, social and economic benefits right across the country. Our international athletes sacrifice so much to represent us on the world stage and inspire so many young people to get involved. They deserve our support and we thank the Government for committing funding to their programmes under this Budget.

“While details are still to be announced by Sport Ireland in relation to the distribution of the funding, today’s Budget announcement provides the means necessary to continue delivering on the 2018-2027 National Sports Policy and that is very positive.”
