Sports Council welcome Minister

The Sports Council for Northern Ireland was delighted to welcome Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State Angela Smith MP to the House of Sport on her recent visit.

The Minister, who is responsible for The Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure (DCAL), helped the Sports Council to launch their Lottery Strategy (2002–2007) and Corporate Plan (2003-2006).

The Minister enjoyed a talk given by Lottery Director Nick Harkness and Sports Development Director Shaun Ogle, and afterwards took time out to walk around the building and chat with a variety of Sports Development and Governing Body staff.

Sports Council Chairman, Professor Eric Saunders said:

“It is a pleasure to welcome the Minister to the Sports Council, the time she has taken out today is greatly appreciated by all of us at the House of Sport”.
