 THE Alzheimer Society of Ireland in collaboration with the Donegal GAA Health & Wellbeing Committee, is delighted to be hosting a  ‘Sporting Memories’ event to take place in Donegal on Saturday, June 24 in the Mount Errigal Hotel, Letterkenny from 2-4pm. 


 ‘Sporting Memories’ is an awareness and support programme involving using the power of reminiscence to help improve health and wellbeing, especially of people living with dementia. 
It is the first time such an event, and initiative, has been held in Donegal 
The ‘Sporting Memories’ programme aims to tackle dementia, depression, and loneliness through safe, friendly sessions, led by people with a passion for sport and a desire to help people with dementia, their families and supporters stay engaged in their communities.
The Alzheimer Society of Ireland is encouraging people of all ages, including those living with dementia, to attend and reminisce about some of the county’s greatest sporting moments. 
This event is suitable for everyone no matter what your involvement with the GAA was, so if you were a player, a club member/volunteer or a supporter, this event is for you. This is a free event for all to enjoy.
Sporting Memories’ brings people together to reminisce about their lives through the medium of sport, using images, video, and other tools to spark memories and encourage social engagement.
 We encourage as many as possible, especially those living with dementia and their families, to come along and enjoy this opportunity to relive the great GAA moments from the past,  to meet former stars and to enjoy being part of the GAA community once again.
The event will feature some special guests from yesteryear and there will be displays of match programmes, photographs, jerseys and other memorabilia to enjoy.
 Please come along and join us in our Donegal Sporting Memories. 


 For more information please contact Cathryn O’Leary, National Community Engagement Manager 085-8566478 or Kevin Mills, Donegal GAA Health & Wellbeing Committee member 087-2170806
