Participation in Rugby in Ireland

Authors: Pete Lunn , Elish Kelly

Research Areas: Health and Quality of Life

This project, funded by the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU), will produce a quantitative analysis of participation in all forms of rugby on the island of Ireland. The work will use multiple datasets to analyse the key transition points in people?s lives at which they take up and drop out of rugby. The research will provide evidence to inform policies designed to increase participation, in the context of the wider public health effort to raise levels of physical activity among adults and children.
