Vision Sports Ireland is delighted to announce the 41st MayFest with support from Aviva Ireland having been selected as the Aviva Broker Community Fund Charity winner for Diversity and Inclusion.

MayFest will take place on Saturday 21st at UCD Sports Centre and Sunday 22nd May at Dun Laoghaire Harbour, Dublin and will include a number of member-favourite sports and activities including swimming, athletics and blind/VI tennis, and new sports, including VI rugby, kayaking and nature mindfulness.

We are also delighted to host our ‘Leaders of Today and Tomorrow’ dinner reception as part of MayFest 2022, which will take place on the evening of Saturday, 21st May in the Talbot Hotel Stillorgan. The ceremony will recognize and award our Paralympians on their achievements at Tokyo 2020, our Youth Leaders and celebrate all of our community.

Previously known as ‘The Irish Games’, MayFest has continued to grow year on year since 1981 and has become a flagship event for Vision Sports Ireland with a core focus on participation and increasing physical activity opportunities for people who are blind and vision impaired across the country, and their family and friends.
