Last Monday brought a great crowd to the new Bennettsbridge GAA Club house for a Health and Wellness evening. The speakers on the night were Insp Paul Donohoe, Det Sgt Brian Sheeran and Conor Harris. The gardaí spoke on the issue of drugs and how situations involving drugs rarely end well. Det Sgt Sheeran noted that there are over 800 deaths a year related to drugs. Insp Donohoe informed all in attendance about the new drug driving tests and the implications to travel and visas if one receives a drugs conviction. Conor Harris spoke in detail about his story of drug addiction and mental health issues. His story was compelling and Conor further spoke about how people around him and a treatment centre changed his life for the good. Conor is now almost 5 years sober.
There were some great questions from the large crowd in attendance. The next talk takes place on Monday night, 12th February, at 7.30 pm in St. Kieran’s Hall, Johnstown, hosted by the Fenians GAA Club.
