Changing the Game - Irish Women in Sport 2000 - 2015
The Irish Sports Council have just released a publication named Changing the Game - Irish Women in Sport 2000 - 2015 which outlines in photographs some of the prominent Irish women involved in various sports over the period.
From Sports Ireland...Increasing women's participation in sport is a key strategic priority for Sport Ireland. The 2013 Irish Sports Monitor reports that almost 43% of women are regularly taking part in sport; this is the highest recorded participation rate for women since the ISM was introduced in 2007 and has resulted in a significant narrowing of the gender gap. Participation in sport in Ireland continues to grow to an unprecedented level and Sport Ireland will endeavour to see this positive trend continue.
