Irish Institute of Sport chief to step down after Rio 2016

By Matthew Campelli    29 Jul 2016
Keegan joined the Institute in 2008 following the Beijing Olympics

High performance sport organisation, the Irish Institute of Sport, will be on the hunt for a new sports director when Gary Keegan steps down in September.

Keegan – who took up the role shortly after the 2008 Beijing Olympics – is leaving to set up his own “high performance support offering for the world of business”.

Sport Ireland chair Kieran Mulvey said that Keegan had “played a pivotal role in the transformation of high performance sport in Ireland”. During his tenure Ireland won six medals at the London 2012 Olympics – double the three the nation achieved in Beijing four years earlier.

Earlier this year, the Institute moved into the new High Performance Centre in Dublin, which cost more than €4m (£3.4m, US$4.4m) to build and kit out.

John Treacy, Sport Ireland chief executive, said the “world-class facility” was the “product of the planning, dedication and vision Gary has displayed throughout his time at the helm”.

“It will leave a legacy that will impact on our performance on the world stage for many years to come,” he added.

Keegan added: “Prior to my departure after the Paralympic Games, I will be working closely with Sport Ireland to achieve a successful handover to a new leader. In the interim my immediate focus is to continue to provide every necessary support to Team Ireland at the 2016 Games.”

Keegan’s departure comes at a promising time for Irish sport, following the launch of a new 10-year strategy and millions of euros of investment being pledged by the Irish government.
