Walking for health

Tourlestrane GAA/Ireland Lights up💚💛💚🤪

In a bid to make exercise more accessible on the dark winter nights, ‘Ireland Lights Up’ will see participating clubs turn on their floodlights/lighting systems between 7-pm-9pm each Thursday for a six-week period (17th January – 21st February, 2019) as Operation Transformation returns to our screens in the New Year . 
Each Thursday, club and community members will be invited to come together at participating clubs to walk off the Christmas excess, catch up with their neighbours, and banish the winter blues. (Walking is proven to benefit both our physical and mental health.) GAA clubs are already becoming hubs for health through the Healthy Clubs Project, with at least one Healthy Club in each county.
As our club officers have been approached by a number of interested parents and members we have registered Tourlestrane as a participating club and are all set to go . Please spread the word to those members not on social media and we ask that on our first night Thursday 17th January all interested walkers meet at 6pm to sign up and we will have a brief chat about the walks . We intend to do 2 organised walks per week one on the Thursday nights at the pitch and another one on Sunday mornings on one of the beautiful Sli na Sláinte walks we are lucky enough to have around the parish ! No more than 5k and only whatever anyone wishes to do themselves . It’s about getting together for exercise a chat and fun thrown in to fight off the winter blues . So spread the word and see you Jan 17th . Watch the page for updates 💚💛
