Sport and the St Patrick’s Festival

Sport is central to our national identity and the St Patrick’s Festival is the ultimate expression of that identity at home and abroad.

Is there a strong enough presence of sport within the programming or could it be done in a different way to highlight the vibrant multi-cultural reach that sport has across Irish communities?

On Tuesday, November 29th at Collins Barracks in Dublin we have created a very special morning of conversation and connection where we can explore this ahead of next year’s Festival.

St Patrick’s Festival CEO Richard Tierney and Artistic Director Karen Walshe will join Sport for Business CEO in a discussion to which all Sport for Business members are invited.

From sporting bodies who want to highlight their work to brands that might see an innovative way to express their place within Irish sport and society, and agencies that might gain an edge in creativity and imagination.

Anything is possible and we will be talking to exactly the right people who make the Festival happen.

It promises to be a special morning.

Register your interest in joining us below and we will be in touch. Places are limited and will be given to those who register on a first in basis.
