Healthy Clubs Project

Killeagh Healthy Clubs Project is an initiative jointly run by the 4 clubs using Páirc Uí Chinnéide namely, Killeagh GAA, Killeagh Camogie, Inch Rovers Ladies Football and Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile GAA Clubs. The project has been running since February 2016 and many activities and changes in practices have taken place under its direction. There have been monthly walks, a CouchTo5K running group, Páirc Uí Chinnéide has gone ‘smoke-free’, and there has been an emphasis on healthy eating in activities run by all four clubs. In recognition of the work done to date, the Killeagh Healthy Clubs Project has been selected as one of the ‘Champion Clubs’ to spread the message of healthy living to other clubs and communities. This process begins in Nemo Rangers on Saturday February 18th when the Healthy Clubs Munster Roadshow takes place. Killeagh Healthy Clubs Project Team will be assisting camogie and now media star and Healthy Clubs Ambassador Anna Geary in promoting Healthy Eating. With a large crowd expected, this is a good fillip for the enthusiastic team behind the Killeagh Healthy Clubs Project, and will provide an incentive to continue the good work throughout 2017.
