Fingal County Council Unveils Community Get Active Initiative

Fingal County Council is calling on sports clubs and the local community to come together to help people get active once Government restrictions are lifted and activities are allowed resume.As part of a new “Active Club Challenge”, Fingal’s Sports Office has formed partnerships with Cricket Leinster, the FAI, Leinster Rugby and Tennis Ireland, to create an enjoyable way for anyone, but particularly those who may have struggled to get active during the pandemic, to make that step towards a more active 2021.Thanks to funding from Sport Ireland, the six-week programme which will begin when Government restrictions allow, it is free of charge for any Fingal sports club and is specially designed to provide a safe, enjoyable, and encouraging environment to allow participants to build up fitness and stamina.Fingal County Council will hold a free online ‘Nutrition Information’ session for all participants and an online ‘Introduction to Exercise’ session to give participants some health-related support and advice to encourage people to stay involved in the programme. Mayor of Fingal, Cllr David Healy said: “The sports groups across Fingal do great work for communities and it would be great to get as many of them as possible involved in this excellent initiative. COVID has shown us that we are stronger together so let’s make Fingal the most active community in Ireland as soon as government restrictions allow.” Contact the Council for further information.
