Healthy Club Recognition Day - Group Shot

First GAA clubs in Ireland to fly the Official “Healthy Club” flag over their club grounds

  • Fifty- eight progressive GAA clubs across the 4 provinces awarded for transforming their clubs into ground-breaking community healthy hubs.
  • Leading GAA ambassador Seán Cavanagh refers the clubs as “inspirational leaders” in Croke Park at the Official Recognition event

The GAA is delighted to award and recognise 58 exemplar GAA clubs (at least one in each county) with Official “Healthy Club” status. Over the last number of years these clubs have participated in the GAA’s flagship Healthy Clubs pilot which is backed by Irish Life and Healthy Ireland. This involved supporting clubs to make their club more health-enhancing through a variety of health and wellbeing programmes and initiatives including healthy eating; becoming a smoke-free club; physical activity for non-playing members; engaging older members of the community; emotional wellbeing; youth development; gambling, drug, and alcohol education; and inclusion and integration.

The impact on the clubs has been transformative in terms of improvements in health promoting activities, better opportunity to link the local community with club activities, increased membership and opening up new funding avenues all the while enhancing the health of their communities and ensuring a healthier future for everyone who engages with their club. 

The following clubs are amongst the first clubs in the association to receive official Healthy Club Recognition (2018- 2020) following successful completion in the GAA Healthy Club Project (HCP)
