Sport In Focus

SportInFocus


'Sport In Focus' is a unique project dedicated to shining a spotlight on a variety of sports in County Clare, with a special emphasis on minority sports. While Gaelic games like hurling and football have a strong presence in the county's culture, other sports often struggle to receive the recognition they deserve.

The goal of this project is to bring attention to these lesser-known sports and showcase the value they bring to the community. Each episode will delve into the significance of these sports in County Clare, highlighting the passion and dedication of those involved in both playing and supporting these activities.

By focusing on a diverse range of sports, 'Sport In Focus' aims to promote inclusivity and diversity in the sporting community of Clare. Whether it's niche sports like archery or handball, or more mainstream activities like soccer or basketball, every sport has a place in this project.

Grassroots organisations play a crucial role in the development of sports within the community, providing opportunities for individuals of all ages and abilities to get involved. 'Sport In Focus' will highlight the importance of these organizations and the impact they have on shaping the sporting landscape of County Clare.
