A HEALTHY CLARE calendar for 2024 has been launched by Clare County Council.

Containing details of national and international health awareness dates throughout the year, the Healthy Clare Calendar also includes contact details for health and wellbeing supports and services available to people in the county.

Ways to stay well in 2024 based on the five themes of keeping active, switching off and being creative, minding your body, minding your mood and eating well also feature in the calendar. The information in the calendar is complemented by high quality photography of health-enhancing outdoor spaces and activities in Clare.

Clare Local Community Development Committee’s (LCDC) Healthy Clare team, based in the Rural and Community Development department at Clare County Council created the calendar. It is the second time the initiative has been run following its popularity in 2023 where 1,000 hard copies were distributed.

Cathaoirleach of Clare County Council, Cllr Joe Cooney (FG), noted, “The initiative also achieved recognition at national level as a runner-up in the Local Authority Members Association (LAMA) Awards and is part of Clare County Council’s shortlisted entry in the upcoming Chambers Ireland Excellence in Local Government Awards”.

Pat Dowling, Chief Executive, Clare County Council, explained how “the beautiful photographs captured in this year’s calendar are all from County Clare, and they demonstrate ways we can utilise our natural and local environment in the county to support our health and wellbeing all year round”.

Bernadette Haugh, Senior Executive Officer, Rural and Community Development, said, “The Healthy Clare Calendar is a practical resource that raises awareness of the different health awareness dates that occur throughout the year, and highlights ways we can protect our own health and wellbeing here in County Clare. I’m hopeful that people will not only pick up the Healthy Clare Calendar 2024 but that they may also be inspired to adopt a healthy habit in 2024 too”.

Dena McGrath, Healthy Clare Coordinator outlined that the Healthy Clare Calendar 2024 is “a practical health and wellbeing guide that includes signposting to available supports and services that can offer support with challenges that may arise during the year”. Dena added that “having a list of supports and services readily available at the back of the calendar, if and when needed, is important”.

Members of the public can obtain a hard copy of the calendar free of charge from Clare County Council by emailing healthyclare@clarecoco.ie.
