Waterways Ireland 2017 Event Programme welcomes applications from event organisers for events taking place on or along the waterways. Formerly called the Sponsorship Programme in 2017, Waterways Ireland Event Programme is seeking applications for sustainable events and activity in waterway and waterside communities.

​Taking place annually for the past 11 years the Programme has supported competitions, learning experiences, community, historical and educational events for people with and without disabilities across 1000's of communities nationwide. Involving angling, canoeing, rowing, sailing and power-sports, arts, history, drama, learning new skills, these events have most importantly been about having fun.

Sharon Lavin, Head of Marketing and Communications with Waterways Ireland stated that "The Waterways Ireland Events Programme supports 100's of community events. The new vision for the Event Programme will activate event organisers to consider how they can build in ongoing activity and sustained use of the waterways corridors into their event.   Tourism & participation in recreation has a social and economic impact in waterfront communities, and events are a great way to engage communities with previously under-utilised waterways."

For the first time, applications can now be made online. The application form and guidance notes can be viewed, and completed online athttp://www.waterwaysireland.org/events. Terms and conditions apply. The closing date the receipt of completed applications is 17th January 2017.

Waterways Ireland is the Recreation and Navigation Authority for the Barrow Navigation, Erne System, Grand Canal, Lower Bann Navigation, Royal Canal, Shannon-Erne Waterway and the Shannon Navigation.
