'Ireland Lights Up' walking initiative is back with a bang
The popular ‘Ireland Lights Up’ walking initiative is back with a bang with over 380 participating clubs and over 20,000 walkers getting out each week during the initiative.
Ireland Lights Up represents a coming together of RTÉ's Operation Transformation, the GAA and Get Ireland Walking to provide a network of safe, well-lit environments for all members of the Community to get out and active.
John Horan, An Uachtarán Cumann Luthchleas Gael said: “In every corner of the country our network of clubs plays a crucial role in contributing towards a healthier Ireland.”
Latton O’Rahilly’s club member Deirdre Quinn explains how “Ireland Lights Up” changed her life for the better following a serious health scare.
“It’s thanks to Lights Up Latton that I did get involved with them and I turned everything around. Ireland Lights Up is where people are going to meet up, have their chats and their little bit of gossip. If it wasn’t for Ireland Lights Up Latton I don’t know where I’d be today”
