On behalf of the Minister and the Department of Sport, Sport Ireland is seeking assistance from the sporting community to support those coming to Ireland from Ukraine.
Sports organisations may be in a position to contribute to Ireland’s humanitarian response at a national, regional and local level. The immediate need is for suitable accommodation and facilities. In the longer term, sport will play an important role in welcoming people from Ukraine into their new communities.
Sport Ireland recognise that many Governing Bodies and their affiliated clubs have already been proactive in this regard.
