Water Safety Reminder
Let the Games Begin
Olympic Fever will start early for the Older Adults of Fingal, Meath, Kildare, Wicklow and Dublin City with the Go for Life Games Day at Dublin City University on Saturday 16th June 2012.
Twelve representatives from across Fingal are taking part in this inaugural competition. The Go for Life Games were devised by Age and Opportunity Go for Life tutors and they will test the skill of competitors in the disciplines of bowling, skittles and pitching. The Fingal team will compete in team events and will also be able to shine as individuals. It is hoped that this Games Day will be an annual fixture in the calendar and that will grow into a national Event.
