Kilkenny GAA Addiction and Mindfulness Awareness Evening – An Awareness evening was held on 1st November 2019 in Palmerstown. The guest speakers were Justin Campbell and Cecelia Shefflin. 43 people from 13 clubs attended the evening, where Justin and Cecelia shared their expert knowledge and gave their perspectives on addiction and mindfulness. The crowd were enthralled by the experiences of Justin in his work with addicts and how addiction develops over time. Cecelia demonstrated how mindfulness has to be practiced on a regular basis and while it is simple it is not easy to take time to enjoy the moment you are in rather than thinking about the past or the future. Eddie Holohan Dicksboro club chair welcomed everyone and Shane Kavanagh gave a brief outline on what the evening would entail. Carmel Kenny closed proceeding by thanking the speakers, the audience and Dicksboro for hosting the event. All in attendance enjoyed refreshments courtesy of Dicksboro GAA club afterwards.
