Ireland Lights Up (Cork)

As part of the GAAs ‘ Ireland Lights Up initiative’ we are teaming up with RTE’s Operation Transformation and Get Ireland Walking, to make exercise more accessible on the dark winter nights.

More than 150 GAA Clubs signed up last year across the country, with over 6,000 walkers talking to their local GAA club each week to walk off the Christmas excess, catching up with neighbours and banish the winter blues. Therefore the lights around Paírc Chormaic will be on every Thursday between 7pm-9pm for a five week period (January 17th – February 21st, 2019)

A number of Cork GAA Clubs have also signed up to the initative and are opening their facilities to the local community to come walk in a safe and supportive environment during the winter months every Thursday from January 19th between 7pm & 9pm: 

  • Castlehaven GAA
  • Castletownroche, Close Road
  • Cloughduv Hurling Club (near Ovens)
  • Gabriel Rangers GAA (Ballydehob)
  • Glenlara Newmarket
  • Happy & Healthy, Ballinvarrig 
  • Killeagh GAA
  • Kilshannig GAA (Near Mallow)
  • Millstreet GAA
  • Newtownshandrum GAA
  • Urhan GAA (near Allihies)
  • Whitechurch GAA/Rockban LGFA
  • Youghal GAA Club Aras

If you would like to go along to any of the above initatives just turn up to register and get walking for the next 6 weeks between the hours of 7pm and 9pm.  For further details see Get Ireland Walking
