Welcome to Athletics Ireland

The vision of Athletics Ireland is to inspire the nation to be active, healthy and to perform through athletics.

We believe Ireland needs a radical cultural shift towards physical movement and activity.

Our ‘Welcome to Athletics Ireland’ campaign, which is run in collaboration with Sport Ireland, is expanding the definition of sport and making athletics accessible to all.

Exercise helps with not only your physical health but also your mental health, and the simplicity and accessibly of athletics leaves it ideally placed to become the nation’s sport of choice.

Athletics Ireland is for EVERYONE, and we've got an event for you!
