Clare Local Sports Partnership (CLSP) has been named “Local Sports Partnership of the Year” at the 2024 Sports Industry Awards hosted by the Federation of Irish Sport.

This prestigious award celebrates CLSP’s exceptional efforts in promoting sports and physical activity throughout County Clare. The award acknowledges the hard work of CLSP’s dedicated administration and sports development team.

Their relentless efforts and passion have been instrumental in fostering collaborations with local agencies, local schools, sports clubs, and community organisations. These partnerships have created a robust network that has significantly increased sports participation and improved community well-being in Clare.

John Sweeney, CEO of Clare Local Sports Partnership, stated, “I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to all our staff, the board of directors, and our partner organisations. Their unwavering support and commitment over the years have been crucial in ensuring the continued success of CLSP. I also want to thank the Federation of Irish Sport for this award and for their ongoing support. This award is a shared achievement, and we are excited about the future of sports in Clare”.

Tim Forde, Chairperson of Clare Local Sports Partnership, remarked, “I just wanted to take this opportunity to acknowledge the award CLSP received at yesterday’s Federation of Irish Sport Award night. It is with great pride that I congratulate everyone involved in the outstanding organisation that is the Clare Local Sports Partnership. It is a testimony to the efforts the Executive make daily to provide our services and programmes. So, huge gratitude to John and all the team. Also, I would like to thank the Board of Directors and the membership for their support and inputs, which, in turn, enables the successful operations and strategic progress of CLSP”.
