Sligo RFC was represented by the President at the launch of the Sligo Sport and Recreation Partnership [SSRP] of their Strategic Plan 2007-2012, Making Sport And Recreation a Way of Life in Sligo, at Sligo I.T. on Tuesday last. The impressive launch highlighted the tremendous work being done in so many sports for all age groups by the Sligo Sports and Recreation Partnership, under the direction of co-ordinator, Deirdre Lavin, and her staff of Andrea Fox, Diane Middleton and Shane Hayes.
Our club is the grateful beneficiary of a grant from the Partnership.
Speakers on the evening, as well as Ms. Lavin, were Olympic silver medallist, and twice world cross-country champion, John Treacy, who is CEO of the Irish Sports Council, Dr. Richard Thorn, Director, Sligo I.T., and Colr. Tony McLoughlin, Vice-Chairman of the Sligo Sports Partnership, and all three paid glowing tributes to Deirdre Lavin and her staff. Our club looks forward to working with SSRP in the coming season and for many years to come.
