Sport Ireland was established on October 1 2015. It is the authority tasked with the development of sport in Ireland. This includes participation in sport, high performance sport, anti-doping, coaching and the development of the Sport Ireland National Sports Campus.
In Summer 2018 the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport published the National Sports Policy 2018 – 2027. The National Sports Policy provides the policy context in which we will operate over the next 10 years.
