Go for Life Grant Allocations

Irish people over 50 are now more likely to be active than inactive, according to a new survey from Age & Opportunity's Go for Life and Sport Ireland. The research, launched today by Minister Michael Ring TD, Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport with Special Responsibility for Tourism and Sport, shows that there are 53% of older adults who can be classed as 'active' instead of 'low or not active'. Just over half of those are getting half-an-hour of physical activity five days a week, so they are reaching the national guidelines for adults. Age & Opportunity and Sport Ireland have been tracking the behaviours and attitudes of older people since 2006 and this has been the first time that active older people are in the majority, though the research has been seeing activity levels slowly rising over that time from 39% to 53%.
