Ann Marie Walsh gave a presentation on what we should be eating, i.e. portions and foods suitable to weight control. Kevin Murphy gave a talk on how to keep fit. Ger Dempsey gave a presentation on injury prevention with the help of Austin Codd and Tom Nolan who demonstrated stretches to carry out before and after training.
