Letters: labelling people "far-right" over concerns for loved ones is very disrespectful

The Media coverage of recent protests around migration describing participants as everything from "far-right" to "anti-immigration" is a very sad reflection on the standard of reporting in Ireland today. The Protests which started in East Wall before Christmas were predominantly based around people's concerns for the welfare

GAA club walking tracks to benefit from Healthy Ireland grant support

GAA

The GAA is delighted to announce a once-off funding opportunity from Healthy Ireland designed to make community walking tracks located on GAA grounds more accessible to more people.

Open to GAA, LGFA, and Camogie clubs in the Republic of Ireland, the 800,000 funding is designed to make existing walking tracks more accessible to persons with mobility issues, such as older persons and wheelchair users. Funding may also cover the upgrading or installation of lighting designed to prolong the hours of usage particularly during the dark winter evenings.

Healthy Ireland is a long-standing partner of the Irish Life GAA Healthy Club Programme and supporter of the GAAs efforts to maximise clubs positive impact on the health and wellbeing of their communities. GAA clubs have in recent years invested heavily in the installation of walking tracks to support this outcome. Tens of thousands of people participate annually in the GAAs Ireland Lights Up initiative, which runs each January/February in conjunction with RTEs Operation Transformation and has become Irelands biggest walking intervention.

An Uachtarn CLG, Larry McCarthy, said: The GAA wants as many community members as possible to stay active by availing of our walking infrastructure. Such amenities require constant maintenance, with quality surfaces and lighting required to ensure they are suitable for persons with mobility issues and older people. We greatly appreciate Healthy Irelands support in helping clubs achieve this in a sustainable way.

Launching the grant application process in Croke Park today, the Minister of State at the Department of Health, Frank Feighan said: My department is delighted to support the work of the GAA Healthy Club Project with this once off funding which will help to improve wellbeing at club level. Working in partnership underpins all our work in Healthy Ireland and is key to improving the health of the entire population. This project has made a significant contribution to the Healthy Ireland agenda since it was launched.

Tom James, Head of Healthy Ireland, added: This is an important and worthwhile project. It is essential that if we are to improve health and wellbeing at a population level, we need to provide safe spaces for individuals to engage in physical activity in their own communities. This builds on the work that is underway in over 450 clubs all over Ireland and we are indebted to the GAA for their commitment to health and wellbeing.
