Today the Irish Sports Council launched a digital Video #FindYourTrail to encourage people of all ages and ability to enjoy the great Irish outdoors.
Recreational trails help people to enjoy the outdoors and facilitate, promote and manage a range of outdoor activities including countryside walking and hiking, on and off-road cycling, trail running, canoeing, horse-riding and even motorised sports, all with the aim of providing a pleasant, safe and enjoyable experience to trail users.
Chief Executive of the Irish Sports Council, John Treacy said: “Participation in physical activity is on the increase and recreational walking is hugely popular. Over 785 trails are registered under the National trails office and I would encourage people to get active and develop habits of regular exercise which will ultimately lead to enhanced quality of life”.
National Trails Manager of the Irish Sports Council, Cormac MacDonnell, commented: “ We are delighted with the new trails video as there are now hundreds of fantastic trails developed right around Ireland, from coastal to forest walking trails, water and cycling trails. These trails are a great way for people to discover and get active in Ireland’s great outdoors with family and friends “

Please see below details on a Concussion Awareness seminar that South Dublin County Sports Partnership are holding in Tallaght Stadium next week as part of South Dublin Co. Health & Wellbeing Week.
Tues Sept. 15th 7pm
Presenter: Shane Mooney, IRFU First Aid and Injury Prevention coordinator.
Shane is responsible for all IRFU medical training and education and is the programme manager for Safe Rugby.
The Irish Rugby Football Union has developed a range of educational materials, including posters, wallet cards and online content and earlier this year launched a series of videos aimed at junior and senior players, parents, coaches and referees, all based on their Stop, Inform, Rest, Return message.m
In January 2014 the IRFU implemented the most conservative "time out" and return to play guidelines in Irish sport to protect those who suffer a suspected concussion during a rugby related activity.
The presentation will cover areas like:
- what is concussion?
- how does it occur?
- the signs and symptoms?
- their onset, development and recovery.
Shane will look in depth at the graduated return to play protocols and answer any questions that you have related to concussion and head injury.
