The aim of Community Games is to introduce our children and young people to a variety of sporting and cultural activities and this was the vision of the Games founder, Joe Connolly. In Cork we have had considerable success in this regard during the past forty years. On
an annual basis in Cork thousands participate in area organised activities, leading to County, Provincial and National Finals. Winning is a bonus but is far from a necessity to ensure the enjoyment associated with participation.
Down through the years many of our young sports people have achieved major success at national and international level. There are numerous in many disciplines, but the marvellous achievements of Sonia O Sullivan does deserve mention. She is a fantastic Ambassador for Community Games.
Also many have gone on from their Community Games experiences and made their mark in many walks of life and we are very proud of them.
