The aim of this project is to kickstart a health awareness programme which may be sustained and built upon leading to a healthier community and improved community.


As the largest voluntary organization operating in Kilcoo, the Kilcoo GAC is a central hub of the close-knit rural community. In order to encourage health and fitness in the local area, the Kilcoo GAC applied for funding to develop an extensive health and fitness summer scheme for young people and a variety of health projects for all age groups.


Funding from DRAP enabled the purchase of a range of sports equipment, medals, and coaching costs –along with a defibrillator - that will help develop the project
