The North Tipperary Sports Partnership was established by the Irish Sports Council in 2001, as one of the first eight successful pilot sites for a Local Sports Partnership (LSP). There are now 33 Local Sports Partnerships nationwide. They are Carlow, Cavan, Clare, Cork City, Cork County, Donegal, Dun Laoghaire / Rathdown, Fingal, Galway City, Galway County, Kerry, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Limerick County, Limerick City, Louth, Mayo, Meath, Monaghan, North Tipperary, Offaly, Roscommon, Sligo, South County Dublin, South Tipperary, Waterford, Westmeath, Wexford, Dublin City, Leitrim, Wicklow and Longford.
Increased levels of participation in sport and recreation by all, are the desired results, and this will be achieved through enhanced co-ordination at local level. This ‘SPORTSITE’ is intended to provide accessible information on sport and recreation and on the work of the Sports Partnership in North Tipperary, both for local people and visitors to our site.
