Physical Activity and Sport
Physical activity is a fundamental aspect of a healthy lifestyle and can help improve cardio fitness, muscular endurance and bone strength. It can reduce the risk of diseases such as cancer, diabetes and cardio vascular diseases, while also being attributed to positive mental and social well-being.
Go for Life
Go for Life is the national programme for sport and physical activity for older people in Ireland and we have lots of ways to help you to be more active.
Go for Life is an Age & Opportunity initiative, funded by Sport Ireland. It runs in partnership with the Local Sports Partnerships and the Health Service Executive Health Promotion Units.
