Kick Start Crokes - We Need Your Help

The Healthy Club Project is a GAA initiative backed by Irish Life and Healthy Ireland. It is focused on improving the health of the nation. The initiative capitalizes on the key role played by GAA clubs in local communities all over the island of Ireland. Our club is one of the sixty clubs in Ireland chosen to participate in this unique project and will be one of the FIRST to receive “Healthy Club” status in 2017. The intention is that the club will become a hub for health information and programmes thereby empowering our members and communities to enjoy healthier lifestyles.

Who is it For .. Everyone – from young to old. Everyone- from within the club and community Everyone- for those who already consider themselves healthy and those who want to enhance their health

How Does it Work - A small group of people from the club started to work on some activities aimed at promoting healthy living in our community. Based on the demand locally we are looking to expand our group and attract some new faces. If you have an interest in health and wellbeing and would like to get involved we would love to hear from you. Please help and support in whatever way you can.

One of the Initiatives we are looking for help with is the running of our popular Kick-Start Crokes program which will once again start in January.  It focuses on a number of healthy activities during the course of the 1st 3 months of the year for the benefit of members – cycling, couch to 5k, circuit training, pilates, yoga,  workshops, 5k community walk / fun run. Prep work for this needs to be done now in the next couple of months.

We are looking for 2-3 folks to take this on as a project and build on the success of the last 2 years.  Please help out. Don’t leave it to always the same people. Its great fun and satisfying. Get Involved.   If interested, please drop an email to
