The Laois Sports Partnership will host an evening with Offaly footballer Niall McNamee on Monday the 10th of October in Stradbally Library at 7.30pm. A very personal story โ€œOvercoming Adversity Through Sportโ€ outlines how sport helped Niall and his struggles with a gambling addiction. Over the past number of years there has been a lot of talk regarding the benefits of sport and physical activity on a personโ€™s well-being and we are inviting you to come and listen as Niall offers an insight into his own sporting career and personal journey. As part of Laois Connect Weeks in association with Laois Sports Partnership, this talk is completely free of charge to anyone who wishes to attend. To book your place please contact Patrick Mullaney on (086) 0111722 or by email pmullaney@laoissports.ie as soon as possible.
