The Lord’s Taverners Ireland is a charity for young people with additional needs.

The Lord's Taverners ireland charity

Our Mission

To give young people with additional needs a sporting chance. We believe that sport and recreation are essential to development. We are passionate about helping to create more opportunities for young people to take part in these activities.

Young people with additional needs are less than half as likely to take part in sport at least once a week than young people without a disability.

Our Impact

We help to achieve this mission by focusing on two key areas and donating – minibuses, specially adapted where necessary and sports and recreational equipment, including sports wheelchairs.

To date, we have donated:




Sports Wheelchairs and Sports Bikes


Supported Sport Clubs

Our Partnerships

Lord’s Taverners Ireland has maintained a great partnership with Cricket Leinster in recent years. As their preferred charity partner, we have also supported them through our collaborative work with the Table Cricket Programme.

Lord’s Taverners Ireland has also re-established its partnership with Cricket Ireland for the next three years, following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding by the two organisations.

The Irish Wheelchair Association has also been a great support to Lord’s Taverners Ireland. Through them, the charity has been fortunate to identify and help many clubs and individuals across Ireland to acquire specialised minibuses and sporting equipment.

Throughout its history the Lord’s Taverners Ireland has also benefitted greatly from the advice and support provided by The Lord’s Taverners UK including the three directors nominated to serve on our Board, initially John Hooper and Leo Callow and most recently Tom Rodwell.
