UL Sport is the new and ultra-simple brand that heralds ‘Ireland’s Sports Campus’ that encapsulates over 40 years of dedicated professional service that has changed the face of Sport in Ireland. Beginning our life as the National College of Physical Education (N.C.P.E.) we have evolved through the National Institute of Higher Education Limerick (N.I.H.E. (L)) and Thomond College of Education (T.C.E.) before receiving University status in 1989 and becoming now the world respected University of Limerick (U.L.) Throughout our short history Sport and indeed Recreation has been an integral part of what we cherish and encourage as we invite all our students and staff to sign up to our over arching belief that ‘Mens Sana in Corpore Sano’ – a Healthy Mind in a Healthy Body as our contribution to a balanced society. The basic beginner to the Olympic athlete enjoys the same billing and support and our message is proving very effective. The initial stone dropped into the 1972 Physical Education pond new enjoys ripples into every aspect and level of Sport and Exercise in Ireland as we continue to lead and challenge the next sporting generations. Not only do we affect performance but UL Sport now enjoys the role of hosting many international and national competitions on our magnificent Campus. With accommodation in place for thousands a new era of staging events in the one location has sky rocketed and has drawn us directly into the Sports Tourism industry. From humble beginnings UL Sport now lives the brand the affects quality of life and sports performance and forms the centrepiece of Sporting Limerick’s claim to be Ireland’s Sporting Capital.
