The air is clean, fresh and healthy around Dunmoyle, thanks to the decision of the Errigal Ciaran club to go smoke-free.
The entire ground is now out of bounds for smoking, and the response to the move from the local community and visiting clubs has been extremely positive.
Errigal Ciaran GAC were inspired by Tyrone GAA’s Health and Wellbeing Committee to embrace the campaign for a healthier environment, and decided to play their part by going completely smoke-free.
Maura Mc Cartan from Errigal’s Healthy Club team said: “I attend many matches where people think it is ok to just light up and send smoke blowing into you face.
“I think we as a club need to do something to prevent this from happening as not only are adults affected there are also children and young people in the stands. We are hoping that this will discourage people from smoking, especially our younger members.”
With the backing of the club executive, the team secured smoke free signage, through their involvement in the GAA’s Healthy Club project in partnership with Irish Life, Healthy Ireland and the Public Health Agency, and this is on display at the grounds for everyone to see.
The club launched the initiative at youth training, where children and adults were present and the signage was unveiled. People in attendance were delighted to see the club set a positive example in the community and increase the awareness about the dangers of smoking for the younger members.
Club Chairman Malachi Mc Cann added: “We feel this is a great initiative as it helps to protect our members and visitors from the dangers of passive smoking. It also sends a clear message to everyone especially our younger members that the club wish to promote healthy initiatives and therefore discourage anything that contradicts that ethos.”
Through the GAA’s Healthy Club project, approximately 50% of participating clubs have gone completely smoke-free.
