Fermanagh GAA supports Men’s Health Week

Men’s Health Week (MHW) will run from Monday 13th until Sunday 19th June.  The overall aim is to heighten awareness of preventable health problem in men, support healthier lifestyle choices and encourage the early detection of health difficulties.

Over the next week each day Fermanagh GAA will share information regarding different aspects of men’s health and on our Health & Wellbeing page we will have resources and contacts.
