Health and Sports Week Launch – Celebrating Free Contraception

Come along to hear the Boydell Singers sing your new favourite karaoke tune, get free condoms, free lunch and prizes galore!

The theme for Health and Sports Week this year will be Healthy Planet, Healthy People and we’re launching the week with a focus on Healthy People by celebrating the government’s free contraception scheme for 17-26 year olds.  Contraception has been incredibly beneficial for women’s health and we think the government providing free contraception to 17-26 year olds deserves a celebration. In fact HSE Respect Protect will be in the Arts Building all day giving out free condoms and information on free HSE sexual health services.

So how will the celebration look?

The Boydell Singers will start our event by singing Loretta Lynn’s the Pill, a 1970s, pro-contraception, sex positive song that might yet become your new few favourite karaoke number.  Start practicing to sing along here

  • There’ll be some short speeches by Trinity's VP of Biodiversty and Climate Action Jane Stout and TCDSU welfare officer, Chloe Staunton.
  • A sandwich and fruit sponsored by Dunnes stores will be available to the first 75 attendees.
  • Healthy Trinity Ambassadors will hand out free condoms and Trinity's Graduate Intern on Sexual Consent and Disclosure Reagan should anyone wish to ask about Consent
