Directors

Eamonn Sayers, Founder
As a passionate sportsman and member of a family who lost someone from a sports injury, the creation of Sports Charitable Trust is something I treasure. Permanent paralysis, brain damage and death should not be associated with people participating in sport. Catastrophic injury is devastating not only to the injured sports person, but also to the sports person’s family, friends, community and the sport. They live with a condition that affects their family life, their ability to work, and their capacity to enjoy even the most mundane everyday activities that others take for granted.

Gerard Tannam
Despite an increasing tendency to chase shadows, Gerard remains a keen five-a-side footballer and has previously been active in soccer, gaelic football, hurling and basketball. Off the pitch, Gerard is dad and driver to three active sports players, CEO of Islandbridge Brand Development and a professional speaker on branding and customer care.

Neil Harper
Born in Dublin, Neil has been involved in sport, playing gaelic football, soccer and rugby from a very early age. It was in the latter that his passion lay, and he has remained involved in rugby for almost 45 years. He was captain of Monkstown Football Club in 1979/80 and played there, at all levels, for over 20 years before moving on to the greener pastures of the golf course. Today, he is an active member of Woodbrook Golf Club. Neil is the senior partner in Harper O’Grady Estate Agents and Auctioneers and has been actively involved in numerous charitable organisations including the Stuart Mangan Appeal.
