Following their huge success at last year’s Gay Games in Paris, where they amassed an incredible 42 medals, Team Ireland are looking for athletes to proudly represent their country at this year’s Euro Games in Rome.

Dubbed ‘The Friendly Games of Europe’, this will be a multi sport event for the LGBT+ community. As Team Ireland themselves say: “Anyone can register to win, have fun, aim for a personal best or even just have a holiday in one of the most beautiful cities in the world (while supporting the Irish team of course!).”

Sporting Pride, Ireland’s national LGBT+ sports organisation are behind Team Ireland. Committed to making sport a more inclusive and diverse environment, the organisation will support established LGBT+ sports clubs across the country, and will work with National Governing Bodies to develop LGBT+ inclusive programmes.
