Focussed on developing athletics as an eduational and recreational activity while also raising the competitive standards of Irish athletes domestically and on the world stage.
Athletics Ireland’s vision is threefold:
Educational – We will help every child in Ireland experience athletics through the school curriculum. Our volunteers and staff will work alongside teachers to help children experience and enjoy athletics.
Recreational – We will promote athletics as a key part of a healthy lifestyle that contributes to a positive work/life balance.
Sporting – We will ensure that everyone with athletic talent reaches their full potential by providing the appropriate pathways, funding and coaching. We will also provide the competitive opportunities and programmes to assist Irish athletes compete with distinction on the world stage.
The Athletics Ireland Facebook Page and Event Pages associated with Athletics Ireland (i.e Remembrance Run, Grant Thornton Team Challenge, Barefoot Mile) are intended as information communities and fan pages to promote athletics, express thoughts, support athletes and create conversation.
