Sports Hub

The Sports Hub was developed as part of The National Physical Activity Plan in 2018. Longford Sports Partnership secured funding for The Sports Hub following a competitive bids process through Sport Ireland which was accessed through The Dormant Accounts Fund. The Hub gives the people of Edgeworthstown and surrounding area the chance to experience the benefit of The Sports Hub. The Hub itself is located at St. Mary’s Community Campus on the Granard road in Edgeworthstown.

The main objective of the Sports Hub is to increase the number of people of all ages participating in sport and physical activity in the community through various sports and activities. The Hub maximizes this local sports facility through linkages with local schools, sports clubs, community groups and other physical activity groups.

Since being developed in June 2018, there has been a number of programmes run within the Sports Hub. Programmes such as Couch to 5km, Yoga for all, Go for Life Games, Zumba dance classes, Chair Pilates and  Fitness classes for both men and women. It is a very exciting time for Edgeworthstown with so much sport and activities available in the community. We are very lucky to have a facility like this and the plan is to utilise it to its maximum potential over the coming years.
