Football For All
Sligo Sport and Recreation Partnership in conjunction with St. Johns FC and the Football Association or Ireland launched the first Football For All programme in Sligo.
The Football For All programme was established by the FAI with the main aim of delivering football opportunities for people who may not otherwise get the chance to participate regularly in the game of soccer. The FAI led the way as the first Sports Governing Body in Ireland to appoint a national Football For All Co-ordinator and in Sligo, St. Johns F.C have followed this lead by becoming the first soccer club in Sligo to develop a Football For All programme.

Archery Open Days
In response to a number of enquiries about the sport of Archery the Sports Inclusion Disability Officer and the Carrowmore Archers Club regularly organise an Archery Open Days on a monthly basis to promote the sport further and give people with a disability the chance to ‘have a go’ at Archery to see if they would like to pursue it further.
This initiative targets people with visual impairments. There are currently three local people participating regularly in tandem cycling who are linked to local cyclists. This programme presents a great opportunity to get regular exercise in the fresh air with the social support of a trained tandem pilot.
