Crokes Talks

Crokes Talks is a brand / tag line we have developed to ensure we have a much defined focus and program of activity  for player / member, mental health and overall well-being in the club.

Crokes TalksThe initiative was started in January 2015 and has grown from strength to strength. We have added a role to our executive entitled Club Wellbeing Officer. This role is held by Kevin Mulligan.   Along with Kevin, there is an active Crokes Talks Working group who are defining and implementing initiatives to maintain to drive education and involvement across the club in this area.   We also extend the reach of this program outside the club into the broader community and partner with other service providers and organizations who have expertise in this area.  

More details on the strategy, roadmap, interventions, etc can be found below. If you have an interest in this area and want to get involved, contact Kevin at +353-87-2518755
