The ‘How to Age Well’ seminar will also look at why and how exercise, diet, friends, purpose and environment including rural Ireland shape our well-being from childhood onwards.

The aim is to encourage those in midlife to embrace positive change in their physical, emotional and social lives.

Professor Rose Anne Kenny from TILDA, a world-renowned authority in research on healthy ageing will deliver the seminar, while former Kerry football player and seven-time All-Ireland winner Eoin ‘Bomber’ Liston will contribute in his capacity as local GAA Ambassador for the event.

The evening is being coordinated by Kerry GAA’s Health & Wellbeing Committee and supported by Irish life.

Eoin ‘Bomber’ Liston works as a financial advisor in Tralee and says that many people don’t always see the importance of planning for their retirement and the peace of mind it can bring.

Former Kerry player Eoin ‘Bomber’ Liston says: “I am honoured and delighted to be appointed as GAA Ambassador by Kerry County Board. This is is a fantastic initiative to be associated with and one which will be a great benefit to a lot of people in Kerry over the next number of years. With a growing ageing population, not enough is being done to educate people on the steps that are necessary in order to have a secure and happy life. I would therefore like to encourage people to attend the seminar while advising that the clubs share the findings with their GAA members and the wider community. They will be doing a great service in helping people in the comunity to age successfully.”
