Integration through Sport Projects
This project is designed to enable children and young adults to learn about other cultures by participating in sporting competition.
Monaghan Sports Partnership supported an application for funding by Monaghan Immigrant Support Group to run a ten week Basketball programme for teenagers in the Mullaghamatt area of Monaghan town.
The programme aims to bring young people together from different communities and origins through the medium of sport and initially will involve Irish and Lithuanian young people. Basketball coaches include Lithuanian, Henrikas Baikstys and American, Sherman Hall.
The project is making use of the open play Basketball court at Oriel Way in Mullaghmatt.

Monaghan Sports Partnership lent its support to local young people to facilitate their involvement in local Sports Sumer Camps. The children from St. Patricks Accommodation Centre in Monaghan were supported to attend a multi-sports Summer Camp in Threemilehouse and the GAA Summer Camp in Monaghan town
