Getting Healthy With Clubs

Sport for Business will be at Croke Park this morning as the GAA launches the next stage of their award-winning Healthy Club Project.

As part of the launch Ladies footballer Lyndsey Davey, Waterford Hurler Jamie Barron, Mayo Footballer Diarmuid O’Connor and Chairperson of the Women’s Gaelic Players Association Dr Aoife Lane will participate in a roundtable discussion to draw out some of the ways in which clubs around the country can help to deliver a healthier Ireland.

The Healthy Club Project began in 2013, in partnership with Healthy Ireland and the HSE, and supported by Irish Life.

Its aim is to make every GAA club in Ireland a hub for health, by helping clubs provide their communities with programmes that support their physical, emotional, and social wellbeing.

Clubs are being encouraged to get involved in the Healthy Club Project by being given access to Healthy Club resources and to use this as a means of becoming more closely involved in their own wider local communities.

Follow us @SportforBusiness on Twitter and our new Instagram account from 11 AM for updates from the Roundtable discussion.

Join us on Thursday morning at the Marker Hotel for Breakfast with sporting and business leaders as we look ahead to the Sporting Year with Paraic Duffy of the GAA, Pat Keogh of Leopardstown Racecourse, Sue Ronan of the FAI, Diarmaid Murphy of the GAA and with Kelli O’Keefe of Teneo PSG delivering insight on the relationship between sport and the Irish public.
