Getting Kilkenny Active logo

Kilkenny Recreation and Sports Partnership (KRSP) was established as a Local Sports Partnership in 2004, to plan, lead, and co-ordinate the development of sport and physical activity in County Kilkenny. KRSP strives to achieve this through close working with sporting bodies, community and voluntary groups, and statutory agencies. KRSP provides a leadership role in the coordination, development, and delivery of sports and physical activity opportunities in Kilkenny. Our work as a Local Sports Partnership is categorised by Sport Ireland into three main functions – the provision of information, the facilitation of education and training opportunities, and the development and implementation of programmes and events that encourage increased levels of participation.
