is Swim Ireland? The National Governing Body(NGB) for swimming, water polo, diving and synchronised swimming across the 32 counties of the island of Ireland, recognised as such by the Department of Tourism, Transport, Sport and the Arts through Sport Ireland and Sport Northern Ireland. We are recognised at world level by FINA, and at European level by LEN
We exist to encourage participation, develop excellence and regulate our sport and have set out our goals in our 5-year strategic plan.
Our legal structure is that of a company limited by guarantee. We adopted the Voluntary Code of Governance in 2013 and were the first sporting NGB to be compliant with the Code.
Strategic direction is provided by our 11 strong Board of Directors, elected annually at our AGM. The Board are supported by the Swim Ireland President who is elected annually in a voluntary position. The operational responsibility rests with the Chief Executive Officer and staff.
Swim Ireland has a dedicated Leinster Support Officer (Aisling McKeever) and Leinster Pathway Development Coach (Mark Lappin) based in the region to provide a direct line into Swim Ireland and to offer on the ground real time support
Update Swim Ireland have issued an update to the Child
Welfare guidelines and also a Poster
