Dublin City Council
Last year was an exceptional year for events in Dublin. The Tall Ships Festival attracted record numbers of visitors adding a much needed boost to the economy and strengthening Dublin’s position as a premier tourist attraction. The Navy versus Notre Dame American Football game added a new flavour to the events scene as well as over 35 thousand welcome overseas visitors.
Continuing our aim to animate the public domain with top class events we have an excellent program for 2013. We encourage new and innovative events through our Expressions of Interest initiative and support for the Gathering 2013, while supporting other events such as the Street Performance World Championships, The Dublin City Marathon, and the Liffey Swim to name but a few, on an annual basis.
Dublin City Council also has a extensive program of events presented by Dublin City Libraries, Parks, Leisure Centres, The City Gallery The Hugh Lane, and Dublin City Hall.
Athletics Ireland is the national governing body for athletics in Ireland. It's primary objective is to promote and develop the sport at every level from recreational running and schools competitions through to supporting Ireland's elite athletes in international competition.
Athletics Ireland retains a strong volunteer ethos and the thousands of administrators, officials and coaches who give freely of their time play a vital role in our organization. We have 280 affiliated clubs with a combined membership of 34,000 juvenile and senior athletes.
We are delighted to be a partner of the Samsung Run Dublin @ Night and look forward to seeing 10,000 athletes run through Dublin City on the 28th of April.
