Waterford team shines at Go for Life Inter-County Games

Eighty Nine Older Adults took part in the third Inter County Go for Life Games on Friday 2nd December in IT Carlow.
Older adults from Waterford, Kilkenny and Carlow played three different games including lobbers, filisc and scidils in a semi competitive environment where the
focus was on fun and enjoyment. Participants took part in a fun warm up and cool down delivered by Peter Jones.

It was a close race from the off, the amount of skill and enjoyment was a sight to behold. As usual, Kilkenny were victorious, but the twenty eight Waterford participants stole the show in their Christmas jumpers and the spirit of the games. A huge well done to Catherine Chester who was awarded ‘the spirit of the games’ award for her camaraderie with all groups.

The Inter-County event was part of a four week programme in Waterford City and Dungarvan that saw forty two older adults take part in practice sessions in Dungarvan Sports Centre and Cill Barra Sports Centre, Ballybeg.

Waterford Participant Lucy Webb said ‘It was wonderful to interact with all the people from the other counties, everyone had great fun and I really enjoyed myself so thank you’
A huge WELL DONE to all involved, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!!
