Stress Control Course Launch
The HSE South and the GAA Join Forces to Help Tackle Stress, a First In Ireland. Fierce rivals Midleton & St Finbarr's GAA clubs were united in launching their Stress Control course in conjunction with the HSE in Pairc Ui Rinn on Wednesday last.
Not knowing what to expect considering this was a very first for Ireland with a sporting organisation and the HSE combining forces it can be said without a shadow of doubt it was a great success with over sixty five invited guests attending. To start the launch Dr Jennifer Hayes explained precisely what stress is and how everyone experiences it at some time or another in their lives. Jennifer gave a very concise account of what the Stress Control course entails. Yvonne Finn Orde, General Manager, spoke on behalf of the HSE. Tracey Kennedy PRO, then spoke on behalf of Cork GAA. Special guest, Conor Cusack, spoke very eloquently and honestly about stress, anxiety and depression. He spoke about the GAA and how it’s not just about playing hurling and football, the GAA is all about community and not just about your top players but right down to the person in your club who helps out in any capacity.
Minister Kathleen Lynch was our last speaker and officially launched the Stress Control course, There was an obvious positive vibe in the room afterwards which was very evident in whoever you spoke to. Our sincerest thanks to all the aforementioned. A big thank you to those players who donned the Cork jersey over the years in attendance, these included John Fenton, Diarmuid O'Sullivan, Joe Deane, Gerald McCarthy & Eoin Cadogan, all taking their time out to support this very important initiative and also to former GAA President Christy Cooney for  attending. Present on the day from Midleton GAA's Healthy Club Project team were Jerome Curtin, Gavin Power, Michael Walsh, Cllr.Pat Buckley. Also in the audience was club member John Dennigan of Foroige. Special thanks to the HSE staff of Dr.Rosarie Crowley, Yvonne O'Brien, Ger Hannon & Peter Dineen. From Croke Park we thank Colin Regan and especially Stacy Cannon for the fantastic work she did in coordinating things between the clubs and the HSE. It’s very important, just to add that this course is not just exclusively for GAA people, this is available to anyone over the age of 18 from all walks of life and areas outside of Midleton. As we have said in the past Midleton GAA's Healthy Club Project is about Promoting Health & Well-being for everyone in the Community.
