RTE'S Operation Transformation: Gaeil Triucha CLG was one of 140 GAA clubs throughout
Ireland that took part in Ireland Lights Up With the GAA in partnership with RTE'S
Operation Transformation which took place over a six week period from Monday 22 January
to Monday 26 February. The aim of the initiative was to provide a positive and beneficial
resource for people. In a bid to make exercise and walking more accessible and safe
for people on the dark winter nights. The floodlights on the walking track remained
on from 7pm - 9pm for Ireland Lights Up, promoting both the physical and mental benefits
of walking and exercise, as well as promoting the fantastic facilities that Gaeil
Triucha have to offer. The good community spirit and enjoyment of this initiative
was very evident with increased numbers each week of family, friends and members
of the community taking to the track to walk and talk. The club video of the walkers
was also featured on RTE Operation Transformation on Wednesday 31st January 2018.
