‘I will definitely get involved in this project again next year with my students; it has definitely made a difference to students, particularly for pupils who were not born in Ireland. They have spoken about their previous negative experiences of racism’. Teacher from Pobalscoil Inbhir Sceine, Kenmare, Co Kerry

CLUB WELCOME FOR REFUGEES – SRTRC wants everyone to have the opportunity to become involved in sport, to have interests and to become involved in the community. It is not easy for children from asylum and refugee backgrounds to become involved in sport for many reasons. We want to make things easier and to build bridges between communities. Club Welcome is a new initiative,  which is open to clubs from all sports and open to refugees and asylum seekers to become involved in sporting clubs as participants and volunteers. We are supporting clubs with funds and support to help.To book a workshop, ambassadors session or teacher training, order a fundraising pack or resources or find out about the Creative Competition 2017 please contact Sara Hakim (Education Development Officer) on text or call on 086 044 7922 or send an email to
