Live rugby workouts proving an online hit

Live rugby workouts are proving very popular online thanks to one local man whose aim is to get all ages up and moving in the comfort of their own homes. Munster Rugby Community Officer Dan O’Sullivan is leading the workouts via Facebook live and it's such a success that its reached almost 10,000 views.

 

It began on the Killarney RFC page for the past few weeks and Dan was then invited to do it on the Munster Rugby Supporters Club Facebook page as part of the February #movewithmunster campaign. And it's now become the talk of Munster!

"Everything had moved to Zoom and as a branch we said we'd try it live on Facebook," Dan explained to the Killarney Advertiser this week.

"I took over the KRFC Facebook page for the day and it was brilliant, we got some great feedback from parents. Then Munster Rugby Supporters Club asked me to do it on their page, we go live at 1.15pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays and at 10.30am on Saturdays on the KRFC page.

And Dan has made it fun for the kids by getting them to do animals movements.

"Trying to get kids to do lunges and squats is hard so we ask them to do a 'duckwalk' and other animal/primal movements. It's more relatable for them and it's a fun way of doing it."

And as long as there's interest in the workouts, Dan said he's happy to continue.

"We are thrilled to see Killarney RFC lead the way and delighted with Dan’s sessions," Liam Murphy from Killarney RFC said.

It’s back – and not before time – the hugely popular Killarney Rotary Club evening of Wine and Art will return this November.

The pandemic enforced its absence and now every effort is being made to make up for lost time.

Widely regarded as one of the social highlights of the year in Killarney, this year’s gathering will take place in the Great Southern Killarney on Wednesday, November 30, commencing at 7.15pm.

Tickets, which will be available at the door, are priced at €20 and all proceeds raised on the night will go to deserving local charities and community organisations.

Over the years the evening of wine and art has raised tens of thousands of Euro for great causes and the 2022 proceeds will be of enormous benefit to the chosen groups.

This year, once again, the event is being held in association with Daly’s SuperValu and supported by Killarney Brewing and Distilling Company.

Rotary Club President, Rayla Tadjimatova, has appealed to all artists who might like to showcase their work on the night to get in touch with club members, as soon as possible, to guarantee inclusion.

“We are reaching out not only to artists who have supported the event in the past but to any new artists who wish to take the opportunity to place their work in front of a very appreciative local audience of up to one thousand people on the night,” she said.

Those interested should email killarneyrotaryclub@gmail.com as soon as possible.
