“Our ‘Inspired Sport’ theme is where sporting bodies will demonstrate their respective sport and provide information to attendees on how they can participate locally,” said Ian Farrell, South Dublin County Sports Partnership Community Sports Officer. “Each sporting code will also provide information and demonstrations on how they can be adapted to include the participation of people with disabilities.”

“Our ‘Inspire Us’ and ‘Inspired Wellness’ themes will offer a range of mass participation classes such as yoga, box fit, Pilates, and dance, as well as talks and Q&As to inspire people to live a healthier and more active lifestyle.”
