World Stroke Day 2022

Last Saturday, 29th of October was World Stroke Day. To raise awareness, Tandem’s Thrive committee invited the Irish Heart Foundation to present at a lunch and learn.  During the presentation we learned that stroke is the third largest cause of death in Ireland.

Many thanks to Aileen Mc Donnell Gillic, for delivering an insightful presentation that focused on how to reduce the risk of stroke, stroke recognition and how to act FAST.

Knowing the signs of stroke and how to act could significantly impact a person’s chances of survival and to what degree they can recover.

Carrauntoohil Hike and Waterford Greenway Cycle 2022

In April, Thrive undertook a Waterford Greenway cycle. There were 16 participants cycling from Dungarvan to Kilmacthomas and back, 44 km in total. The cycle took us through some amazing countryside. Coming out of Dungarvan over the causeway we had views of the bay towards Helvick Head. The next section was a steady incline that led to a viewing point over Clonea Beach and the start of the Copper Coast. Turning inland from there, we had some sheltered areas of track but mostly open countryside with views of the Comeragh Mountains to the north. We stopped in Kilmacthomas for a lengthy break and well-deserved refreshments in The Coach House. The cycle back was as pleasant as the outward journey and the day was a great success with participants suggesting that we make it an annual event.

Thrive had 9 participants on their guided Carrauntoohil hike in August. The hike commenced from Lisleibane and took over an hour to reach the base of the Devil’s Ladder. The route took in the Devils Ladder and once it was surmounted, there was a slow and steady climb to the summit. The weather was amazing, resulting in incredible views from the Beara to the Dingle peninsula. Kerry Climbing guided the walk and provided a safe route and a steady pace to ensure that we all made it to the top. It was a seven-hour hike from start to finish, every minute was worth it for the spectacular views that we encountered on the day.
