Hi all,

ORNI has been asked to share the following info from Mike McClure at SportNI - see below. Attachments are available to download at the red link at the bottom of this email.

Hi Folks

As some of you may be aware the Irish Sports Council have been tasked by their Minister to look at safety and standards in the adventure activities sector, and the development of a register of adventure activity providers who operate in the Republic of Ireland.

Please note that it is likely that any scheme developed would include those who operate in the Republic even if you are based in the North, so it will be important to be aware of the developments.

In light of this they have formed a working group who have been developing recommendations to go back to their Minister

The Irish Sports Council have invited commercial providers of adventure activities to attend one of the consultation meetings taking place in Dublin, Galway, Sligo, Monaghan, Macroom and Carlow to discuss safeguarding, strengthening and promoting good safety practice within the adventure sector, or to make a written submission to the Council by May 9th.

I have been asked to extend the invitation to all the providers that we are aware of in Northern Ireland as well. We’ll also get this on the Outdoor NI forum.

If you are interested in attending one of the consultation meetings please RSVP to adventure@irishsportscouncil.ie indicating which venue you can attend.

Best wishes


If you have further queries, please don’t hesitate to get back to me or contact the Irish Sports Council directly
