Féach is a Support Group for Parents of Blind and visually impaired Children

Blind Football Ireland

Blind Football Ireland provide football Programmes that aim to provide all people with visual impairments the opportunity to play football locally, nationally and internationally.

 

Suitable for males and females of all ages and abilities, whose level of visual impairment would prevent them from playing mainstream football.

The centres have well trained coaches with experience of working with visually impaired players of all ages and abilities. New coaches very welcome and will receive full training from the FAI.

 

It’s a fantastic sport that can be played by absolute beginners up to elite Paralympic level. Players in our centres range in age from 10 to 55! 

 

Benefits of blind football

  • Open the game of association football to a population that although is a minority group within disability sport, deserve the opportunity
  • Health benefits of exercise and involvement in a sport
  • Increase the awareness of the abilities of players who have lost their sight from birth or acquired it after
  • Psycho-social health benefits with increased positivity, self-confidence and morale
  • Allow players to fulfil a dream of representing their country or just playing the sport they love
