We are delighted to announce we have been shortlisted in the 2021 Charity Impact Awards 2021!
The COVID-19 pandemic had a profound impact on which sports Irish people take part in, with individual sports and activities such as walking, running and cycling experiencing unprecedented growth, one report from sport Ireland saw participation in outdoor recreation and sport double during the pandemic. The increase in outdoor recreation over the last 18 months has led to a dramatic increase in litter, water pollution, as well as disturbance to vegetation, wildlife, livestock and other people.
