This mental health awareness programme got underway on March 1 and will run for ten weeks. Twenty five clubs nationwide are participating in the programme
“As part of our journey through the One Good Club programme all our teams have been invited to take part in a video collage GAA style”. The first video includes the club’s U10, U12 and U14 players. Additional videos will be put together this week.
There are a number of cash prizes on offer with an overall prize of €5,000 while there is a prize of €2,500 for the most community involvement and €2,500 for the most innovative idea.
The programme is divided into five segments, each running for two weeks over the ten weeks. ‘Connect’ is the first segment which is running for the opening two weeks. This will be followed by ‘Keep active’ in segment two, ‘take notice’ in segment three, ‘keep learning’ in segment four and ‘Give’ is the final segment over the last two weeks.
As part of the programme, the club officials will be getting in touch with Liscannor people who are domiciled away from their native parish. The club members are confident that their participation in the One Good Programme will benefit their club enormously.
The club’s progress in this event can be followed on their Facebook page while full details can be had from any of the club officers.
