SportsMind 2018

This weekend sees a very exciting event taking place in Galway that will interest sports fans. SportsMind2018 is a project aimed at getting the Irish Sporting and Fitness Community together in Galway to help us raise awareness and conversation about Mental Health in Ireland, the good and bad, for both Men and Women.
“As we’re sure you’re well aware there are both benefits and downfalls to being involved in the Sporting World, but we want to get people talking and let them know it's OK not to be OK all of the time! Struggles are part of life, but your sporting community are behind you, as are many others.” said organiser Aoife Keane. The event is a networking event with well know sports stars and fitness experts sharing their stories and thoughts. The event is hosted by our own marketing team members Doug Leddin and Kieran O Malley. All 560 tickets have sold out so this should be a terrific night for all in attendance.
