Vision Sports Ireland

Vision Sports Ireland (Vision Sports) is unique in that it is the only organisation in Ireland solely dedicated to promoting sport and recreation for vision impaired people. Indeed, we are the officially registered National Governing Body (NGB) for sport for vision impaired people in Ireland.

We are a not for profit organisation and registered charity, founded in 1988.

Vision Sports is affiliated to the International Blind Sports Association (IBSA) and is a partner with Paralympics Ireland. We also collaborate with other bodies involved in Disability Sports, including the Irish Wheelchair Association Sports section, Cerebral Palsy Sport, the FAI, Cycling Ireland, Athletics Ireland, Rowing Ireland, Swim Ireland etc. Indeed, we are happy to work with all NGBs, Sports Partnerships as well as all areas of the education and sports sectors in Ireland.

We are very closely associated with all organisations associated with the welfare and wellbeing of people with vision impairment in Ireland. We especially receive resource support from our close partners the National Council for the Blind of Ireland (NCBI) and ChildVision. Both organisations also have key representatives on the Vision Sports Board of Directors.

Overall responsibility for running Vision Sports Ireland rests with the Board of Directors, all of whom are volunteers. We currently employ one part-time staff member who looks after our office.
