Councillor Seamus Weir, cathaoirleach of Mayo County Council, helps launch HER Outdoors Week at Lough Lannagh, Castlebar.

Twenty-four events across Mayo during HER Outdoors Week

Mayo Sports Partnership, in collaboration with stakeholders and partners across the county, has announced that along with the initial 18 events, six additional events have been added for booking as part of Sport Ireland HER Outdoors Week.

That means 24 events are available for booking during the week, which runs from August 8 to 14.

HER Outdoors week aims to celebrate and encourage more females to get out and enjoy the benefits of being in the outdoors while bringing visibility to the opportunities for females to get involved in outdoor physical activity.

Partners include Mountaineering Ireland, Achill Outdoor Adventure Centre, Ballina and Castlebar Adventure Hubs, Ballina Rowing Club, Mayo Bulls inline hockey club and Swim Ireland, Moy Canoe Club and Grainne Uaile Sub Aqua Club.

With so many many incredible activities on offer in Mayo, let’s celebrate the outdoors!
