GAA, Trinity GAA and TILDA come together to celebrate ageing

Published: February 22nd 2019

The GAA linked up with Trinity GAA recently to help launch a new series of talks by TILDA, the university’s longitudinal study on ageing.

Over the coming months a number of GAA ambassadors will visit different locations around the country to disseminate TILDA’s research on ageing well.

Members from Trinity GAA teamed up with the GAA ambassadors to visit the TILDA research hub at Lincoln Gate. They underwent some of the ‘ageing well’ tests including gait analysis, grip strength and bone density.

Among the GAA ambassadors on campus were legendary commentator Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh, former Mayo footballer Claire Egan, former Cork dual player Denis Coughlan, former Donegal footballer Anthony Molloy, former Donegal footballer Maria Devenney and former Limerick hurler Eamonn Rea.

Details of the upcoming nationwide talks can be found here.
