Cardiac Screening Day – Subject to sufficient interest the club is planning to facilitate a Cardiac Screening day in February. This event is organized by ‘Healthy Hearts Healthy Lives’, a mobile heart screening service, set up by former Armagh & Crossmaglen players John and Tony Mc Entee, to provide cardiac screening to help prevent sudden deaths in young people who may have “Sudden Adult Death Syndrome”. Males and females aged between 14-35 years old are eligible to be screened. The screening takes about 5 minutes to complete and is a non-invasive, pain free procedure. The test will include a Screening Questionnaire, an ECG and an Echocardiogram if required. All tests will be reported on by a cardiology consultant. Cost is €45. This is open to all persons male or female and they need not be GAA Players or Members. We would hope that as many people from the Community would avail of this worthwhile Service.

Strength & Conditioning Training – Monaghan GAA has devised strength & conditioning programme for 12-16 year olds. This programme has already been adapted by the county development squads and a number of secondary schools within the county. The next step is for programme to be rolled out to all clubs in the county and as such a series of workshops have been organised. Each club has been asked to nominate a maximum of 3 volunteers aged 18 and above. If possible these volunteers should have a keen interest in Strength & Conditioning and would be motivated to implement this programme within their club. Any coaches within the club that are interested in attending please contact Jonathan McMahon 087 9027413 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
