The Ice Skating Association of Ireland (ISAI) is pleased to announce that Odhrán Allen and Clara Peters have joined the ISAI Board of Directors with immediate effect.
Odhrán Allen is a member of the ISAI Figure Skating Technical Committee and qualified as an International Judge with the International Skating Union (ISU) in 2017. He is an occupational therapist and currently works as Chief Strategy Officer with the Association of Occupational Therapists of Ireland.
“I am honoured to have joined the ISAI Board and grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the running and administration of the Association,” Allen said. “I am passionate about ice skating and look forward to playing my part in supporting the national federation to sustain and grow the sport in Ireland.”
In 2008 Clara Peters was the first ice skater to represent Ireland in international competition. She is a seven-time national champion and competed four times at both the European and World Figure Skating Championships. She qualified as a National Technical Specialist in 2019.
“After many years competing on the international stage, I am excited to be back working with the grassroots of Irish skating and growing the passion for ice at home,” Peters said.
Allen and Peters were co-opted to the ISAI Board in line with the ISAI Constitution to assist with the workload of the Association. Both will stand for election at the 2021 ISAI Annual General Meeting (AGM).
