The GAA’s popular ‘Ireland Lights Up’ walking initiative returns in January 2023 in partnership with RTE’s Operation Transformation and Get Ireland Walking.
Ireland Lights Up (ILU) encourages GAA clubs across the 32 counties to turn on their floodlights and open their walking tracks to enable their local communities to come together to walk and talk in a safe environment during the long dark evenings of winter. As ever, Operation Transformation (which returns to our screens on January 5th) will shine a light on this great initiative by showcasing each week on the show GAA clubs that are participating in ILU.
Participating clubs will be asked open their gates on any or all evenings for the duration of the campaign from Wednesday 12th January to Wednesday 2nd March 2022.
Uachtarán CLG, Larry McCarthy, said:
“The GAA is delighted to see Ireland Lights Up return in 2022 in partnership with RTE’s Operations Transformation and Get Ireland Walking. It is one of our most popular community initiatives and its enabling of physical, mental, and social health couldn’t be more timely.
