Title:  Mountaineering Ireland – Board of Directors Vacancies
Date:  12/11/2021

As the representative body for hillwalkers and climbers across the island of Ireland, Mountaineering Ireland is recognised as the National Governing Body for all aspects of mountaineering by both the Sport Ireland and Sport Northern Ireland. Currently Mountaineering Ireland is drafting its new Strategic Plan for 2022 – 2025, which should be launched early in 2022. This is an exciting time for the overall development of our organisation. We have witnessed increased numbers of recreational hillwalkers and climbers over the past 20 months, and heightened public interest in outdoor activities, together with having Sport Climbing as a new sport on the Olympic Games programme. This is an exciting opportunity to join a growing organisation in a leadership role.

To support this new phase in Mountaineering Ireland’s development, we are currently seeking expressions of interest for three voluntary Board member positions, some of which for governance reasons should go to people from outside our membership. Expressions of interest would be very welcome from non-members and from Mountaineering Ireland members with experience in one or more of the following fields:

  • Previous Board members from other Non-Profit NGO’s / NGB’s
  • Legal background
  • Governance background
  • Human Resources background
  • Insurance background regarding sport in Ireland


The closing date for interested candidates to apply is Friday 3rd December 2021
