New country sports organisation launched

A new local country sports organisation has been launched with the aim of significantly improving the representation of all country sports throughout Ireland and also offering better value for money membership for all Irish country sports men and women.

Country Sports Ireland has teamed up with a leading global insurer to develop an outstanding £5 million (€6.4 million) public liability insurance package that provides comprehensive cover for all major country sports activities at the cheapest rates available in Ireland.

Membership of Country Sports Ireland is open to anyone resident in any part of Ireland.

Ronan Gorman, Director Country Sports Ireland said: “Country Sports Ireland was formed in response to the persistent challenges to many aspects of indigenous country sports and the need for much greater resources and expertise focussed on addressing these challenges.

“Country Sports Ireland brings together a team of people who have enormous experience and expertise in the representation of literally every aspect of country sports throughout Ireland for many years.

“I believe Country Sports Ireland can make an important contribution to the promotion and protection of all country sports at a very important time.”
