Health and Wellbeing:
National inclusion fitness day and launch of Killeedy’s Dads and Lads group:
To mark national inclusion fitness day we doubled up on Sunday morning to have the launch of our dad’s and Lads team as they dusted off the boots to play their debut match against Kilteely-Dromkeen.
A marvellous display of skills, fun, comradeship and role modelling was evident from both teams to the delight of the many supporters.
Huge congratulations to Damien Mullaney for setting this group up as part of Killeedy’s health and well-being initiative and pulling off a super start for the team.
We would like to sincerely thank the Kilteely team for coming to Killeedy and for your formidable sportsmanship.
We would also like to thank our many parishioners who helped out on the day from refeering to coaching to umpires to first aiders and the many supporters who turned up to support Killeedy’s Dads and Lads
GAA Healthy Clubs My Mind Matters Challenge
A New Challenge for you……
The GAA Healthy Club Project is once more partnering with Irish Life to encourage club members this October to participate in a wellbeing challenge via the MyLife App that has the potential to raise €10,000 for Samaritans Ireland.
The three-week ‘GAA Healthy Clubs My Mind Matters’ challenge throws-in on October 10th, World Mental Health Day, and aims to inspire participants to set aside 30 minutes five-days-a-week for an activity that boosts their mental health. If participants collectively record 30,000 days of activity on the MyLife App (each 30 minutes of activity recorded counts as one day) between October 10th-30th then Irish Life will donate €10,000 to Samaritans Ireland, the GAA’s official mental health partners since 2015. But that’s not all. Participants can also donate their MyLife points to Samaritans through the MyLife rewards store, resulting in more welcome funds for one of Ireland’s hardest working charities. See our Facebook or Twitter or details on prizes to be won weekly, including: One lucky participant will win an expert coaching & wellbeing event with Oisin McConville for their local GAA club.
