Exchange House Ireland Cultural & Diversity Soccer League

Exchange House Ireland started The Cultural & Diversity Soccer League in Poppintree Sports Centre in Ballymun for members of the Traveller community and other organisations and statutory bodies.

The main aim of this 5-a-side league is to give young Traveller boys and men to have positive outlook on life and encourage thinking for themselves, as well as improving their personal fitness levels and educating them on good nutrition and healthy living etc.

There was a need for this initiative and Cultural and Diversity league as young Travellers in the targeted areas are having problems with employment and community related problems and issues within their community and Exchange House felt that this will give them something to look forward to and concentrate on, it’s also a great opportunity for the Travellers involved to break down barriers and build relationships with teams and the Garda that are involved in the Cultural and Diversity league.

The Cultural and Diversity league will run over twelve weeks.
