Today’s Daily Video is the telling of The Floodlights, a poem created by the Head in the Game initiative to focus awareness on mental wellbeing.

The movement was established in September 2020 following the tragic passing of Dundalk FC videographer Harry Taaffe. It was created by six Dundalk FC supporters determined to foster a discussion and break down the stigma of mental illness.

The video called on players, fans and others across the sport of football to say one line each of the poem in a striking fashion that will hopefully make those in greatest need think twice.

‘Don’t turn your floodlights off.’
