Operation Transformation and the GAA
The hugely popular ‘Ireland Lights Up’ walking initiative returns in January 2020, in partnership with the GAA, Operation Transformation, and Get Ireland Walking.
GAA clubs across the 32 counties will once more ensure ‘Ireland Lights Up’ by turning on their floodlights and hosting community walking groups during the eight-week broadcast period of the hit RTÉ show (which returns to our screens each Wednesday from January 8th to February 26th).
Over 270 clubs participated in Ireland Lights Up in 2019, with a total of 65,000 walkers getting out during the initiative.
The first date for clubs to host ‘Ireland Lights Up’ 2020 is Thursday, January 9th. The aim is to make exercise more accessible on the dark winter nights and to offer local communities an opportunity to get together and socialise in a healthy way. Walking is proven to benefit both our physical and mental health.

Do you want to get moving and active this New Year, but you have nowhere to go?
Do you find it hard to find a safe and well-lit area to go a walk during the dark winter months? Well, your local GAA Club has the answer!
We’re coming on board with the Operation Transformation and the GAA for Ireland Lights Up. Every Thursday from the 9th January – 26th February 2020 our club will be open and lit up for you, your family and friends to come and walk from 7pm.
We want everyone to come and join for Ireland Lights Up 2020!
All are welcome to come to this event.
