The Cathedral Eye Clinic team were privileged to recently attend the Ulster GAA’s annual National Inclusive Fitness Day, with this year’s theme being ‘GAA Healthy Families’.
Ulster GAA employees came together at Tyrone GAA Centre of Excellence, Garvaghy, for a day of team-building, games and health checks. The Cathedral Eye Clinic team were on-site carrying out a comprehensive eye health check for employees and discussing the importance of looking after your eyes, both in and out of the workplace.
As an Official Partner of Ulster GAA, since 2019, Cathedral Eye Clinic have been helping to improve the sight and quality of life of many members of the GAA community.
This year’s staff health day marked the beginning of European Week of Sport and also fell within National Eye Health Week.
Ulster GAA CEO/ Provincial Secretary Brian McAvoy said:
“A healthy workforce not only contributes to the overall wellbeing of the staff but adds to the confidence levels and overall wellbeing of the individual.”
Joyce Shaw, Clinical Services Director, Cathedral Eye Clinic stated:
“It’s clear from events such as this, that Ulster GAA is committed to investing in the wellbeing and in particular, eye health of its players and employees. Our Clinic is delighted to facilitate these comprehensive eye care programmes both in Clinic and on-site in Garvaghy. We look forward to continuing our relationship with such a fantastic organisation and providing the most advanced Ophthalmology treatments across the GAA community.”
