Developing Sport in County Laois

 

The LSP initiative was developed by the Sport Ireland in order to create a national structure to co-ordinate and promote the development of sport at local level.
Sport Ireland identified that the effective development of sport and recreation at the local level would be best delivered through the adoption of a partnership approach between all bodies and organisations involved in the delivery of sport and recreation.

PAL'S Workshops @ Parish Centre Portlaoise

Go for Life is the national programme for sport and physical activity for older people in Ireland. It is run by over 900 volunteers who we call PALs. A PAL is a Physical Activity Leader who is already part of a group or club and is willing to lead activities. PALs lead their local group in things like short exercise routines, fun games, simple dances and sports like pitch and toss. Groups may be an Active Retirement group, a sports club, an ICA group or some social group that meets regularly.

The workshop will commence in September 2022 through December 2022. The workshop will run on Thursdays in the Portlaoise Parish Centre for 9 weeks with a break in the middle. The dates are as follows:

✨ September: 29th
✨ October: 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th
✨ November: 10th, 17th, 24th
✨ December: 1st

All workshops will take place from 10.00am and 3.00pm and refreshments will be provided on the day.

Participants Testimonials

“The bike is fantastic. It makes it possible for a family outing to be inclusive for all. It’s great that we can all join in for a family cycle.

Experience Using Accessible Bikes

I’ve done this programme before and I found it great. It was at the start of Covid so I did it online. The support and encouragement was great, would highly recommend.

Prime Time Life Participant

“Being a sufferer from Parkinsons I have problems with gait, and muscle stiffness. I found the use of the poles very helpful and improved my posture and gait. Thanks to Catriona Slattery and the girls in LSP we had group walks guided by Donie Molloy around Derryounce Lakes and Emo Court. This was particularly welcome as we could meet which was socially very beneficial.”
