Breaffy GAA’s Health and Wellbeing continue to provide our community with a variety of experiences to encourage healthy living in both our physical and mental health. We recently held a very successful Recipes for Success – this is a unique healthy eating/ nutritional initiative designed to respond to an identified need in GAA clubs for practical programmes supporting healthy eating for GAA players and members.
The project is the result of a unique partnership between the GAA, the Home Economics Department at St Angela’s College Sligo and the Association of Teachers for Home Economics.
We held an enjoyable “Recipes for Success”, with the expert help of Home Economics Teacher – Breda Beirne – at St Joseph’s Secondary School in Castlebar where six of our Breaffy Minor Ladies and eight of our Minors Lads volunteered to take part in the two-hour, hands on cookery demonstration.
Thank you to St Joseph’s Secondary School for the use of their facilities and especially Breda Beirne for helping our young volunteers to prepare and bake some delicious blueberry muffins and cook a tasty curry and for helping Breaffy GAA to take a further step in reaching our healthy club status.
