Michael Murray – COO Sport Ireland Campus said, “The Sport Ireland Campus is open to everyone in Ireland and our high-performance programmes for Olympians sit side by side with our Kids Camps and programmes open to the local community. I’d like to sincerely thank Allianz and Team Ireland for coming on board as sponsor of this year’s summer camps and I’ve no doubt that some of the children who attend may go on to represent Ireland in the years ahead”.
Sean McGrath CEO of Allianz Insurance said, “Allianz is a proud partner of the Olympic Federation of Ireland and through our support of the Sport Ireland Campus Kids Camps we hope to help spark a love of sport in the next generation of athletes. This partnership brings an important local element to the work Allianz is doing globally through our partnership with the Olympic and Paralympic Movements, and we’re excited to work in tandem with the Olympic Federation of Ireland and Sport Ireland Campus to continue to foster a love of sport in as many children as possible”.
Peter Sherrard, CEO of the Olympic Federation of Ireland, said; “We are delighted to partner with Allianz and the Sport Ireland Campus Kids Camps to give children a positive starting point in their own sporting journey at the home of Irish sport. One of the things that makes the Olympic Games so special is the variety of sports on the programme, showcasing a very wide range of skill-sets. The Sport Ireland Campus Kids Camps give children a similar opportunity, in allowing them to try out many different Olympic sports, while making memories and friends as they do so.”
On hand to launch the Kids Camp was Shane Ryan, Irish 50m Swimming Olympian and Nadia Power, Irish 800m Olympian who said, “It’s brilliant to see Allianz and Team Ireland coming on board to support the next generation of Irish athletes as they start out on their sporting journey in Sport Ireland Campus.”
