The GAA, in partnership with RTÉ’s Operation Transformation, sought to bring together communities across the 32 counties to enjoy healthy walks in the safe, bright, environs of their GAA club. One such club in Monaghan that signed up is Latton.
In a bid to make exercise more accessible on the dark winter nights, ‘Ireland Lights Up’ will see Latton turn on their floodlights/lighting systems as Operation Transformation returns to our screens.
Each Tuesday and Thursday, club and community members will be invited to come together to walk off the Christmas excess, catch up with their neighbours, and banish the winter blues. (Walking is proven to benefit both our physical and mental health.) Latton have started ahead of the Nation and had over 100 walking on Thursday night – one even as far as Germany!
During the six-week period Operation Transformation cameras will visit a selection of participating clubs across the series, with all clubs encouraged to capture their stories via videos and images for use on the show, GAA.ie, and RTE’s various platforms. Latton may be just one of them.
