Nominations are invited for awards to honour top sporting achievement and voluntary service across Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown
An Cathaoirleach, Councillor Cormac Devlin's Sports Awards gives residents of the County an opportunity to honour those unsung volunteers or outstanding young sport persons from within Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown.
Primary schools all across Dun Laoghaire Rathdown are set to participate in a new health initiative “The Daily Mile” which will improve the physical, emotional and social health and wellbeing of all children – regardless of age or personal circumstances. In 2012 Elaine Wyllie, Headteacher of a large Scottish primary school, realised that her pupils, like many others, were unfit. She introduced the concept of every class doing 15 minutes of a walk, jog or run daily and found the results hugely beneficial. The Daily mile initiative was born and now has become so popular that hundreds of schools in the UK participate in the programme and is also in countries such as Belgium, Holland, the US and now Ireland.
