Islands Sports Hub

The West Cork Islands Sports Hub project is funded by Sport Ireland through the Dormant Accounts Fund (DAF).

The West Cork Islands Sports Hub fund with the support of partner organisations aims to increase opportunities in sport and physical activity on all islands in West Cork – Whiddy, Bere, Cape Clear, Long, Dursey, Heir and Sherkin. This aim will be achieved through the following objectives:

  • To create collaborative sports events between island and mainland clubs.
  • To promote training and development regarding sports and community initiatives.
  • To organise inter island activities.
  • To create a social environment that engages members of the community.
  • A bottom-up community led approach to sports and physical activity.
  • To support active community groups already in operation.
  • To enhance links between island active groups and Cork Sports Partnership.
