Cllr. Terry O’Flaherty visits RGC

Independent local candidate Cllr. Terry O’Flaherty visited the gymnastics training centre during the week. Terry had heard about the hundreds of children and adults coming for gymnastics training each week, and wanted to see for herself.

We were pleased to have Terry visit the club, and we gave her “the schpeel” about the our growth and achievements over the years, current challenges, and future aspirations.

“One of the parents in the club contacted me by phone and told me of the work you are doing. I’m very aware of health problems associated with lack of exercise. When I was young children had much more exercise than they do now. Even walking back and forth to school would put on a couple of miles each day. Childhood obesity is a real problem now, largely because children aren’t getting those same opportunities to exercise.”

“What I found at Renmore Gymnastics was a wonderful area fully equipped for girls and boys to safely practice the sport of gymnastics. There was so much happening there. Really the minister for Sport needs to be invited out to see what’s happening there. It’s remarkable.”

Thanks for coming to visit us Terry!
