Andy Ogle of the North East Drug Task Force discussed the GAA policy on Substance Use while, Sergeant Patrick Smith (Crime Prevention Officer Meath Division) outlined the consequences for young players getting involved in substance abuse.

Carmel Halpin (HSE) and Ruairi Murphy (MLSP) outlined the supports their organisations make available to GAA clubs and to the wider community in ensuring a strong health and wellbeing environment among the GAA Communities in Meath.

Aideen Howlin (Croke Park) congratulated Meath GAA Health and Wellbeing Committee in organising such a successful event and outlined upcoming developments nationally in this area.
