The contribution to Irish culture by the founder of the GAA will be celebrated with the inaugural 'Michael Cusack Day' in Carron, located in the heart of the Burren in County Clarecusack, at midday on Sunday (20 September).

A Shane Gilmore sculpture representing the central role played by Gaelic Games in communities across the island of Ireland will be unveiled exactly 173 years on from Cusack’s birth in Carron, while 32 trees representing each county will be unveiled as part of the TOMAR Trust-funded GAA and Burren fairy trails near the Michael Cusack Cottage.
 The event also will feature the launch of “Going WeLL”, a national wellness experience programme being developed nationally by the GAA to encourage people to take better care of their mental and physical health, and by so doing, to reconnect with their communities.
Going WeLL is being rolled out on a pilot outreach basis to a range of communities, schools and FET (Further Education & Training) Centres from the Michael Cusack Centre this winter, and is targeted at supporting 30 to 33 hours of additional ‘Wellbeing’ Education  per annum in the Junior Cycle programme of pilot schools.

'Outlook is grim' say hoteliers

  Hoteliers have expressed their disappointment with the Government’s ‘Living with Covid-19’ five-level plan y, saying it depicts a grim outlook for the tourism and hospitality industry.
