Clonakilty GAA Club held their Annual Health and Wellbeing Night on Friday 27th March, 2018.
A discussion on trying to find the balance of feeling good was facilitated by members of the Healthy Club Committee, see photo below, with topics ranging from physical and emotional health to the use of social media and the important roles parents, teachers and coaches play in young people’s lives.
This was followed by Guest Speaker, Cork GAA Chairperson, Tracey Kennedy.
Ms. Kennedy spoke of her own personal cancer experience and urged all those in attendance to avail of opportunities available to seek early detection.
She then giving an insight into her involvement with the GAA over the years and the different roles she has held, from her own Club in Killeagh to Cork County Board.
Ms. Kennedy made history only a few short months ago being the first female elected as Chairperson of Cork GAA and said she would like to see more women taking up roles within the GAA.
The evening finished with Tracey Kennedy congratulating and officially launching our Club as part of the Official GAA Healthy Club Project.
We thank both those who contributed and attended on the night.
