MÍCHEÁL Ó Muirc­heartaigh got Pos­i­tive Age­ing Week off to a pow­er­ful start on Mon­day at Dún Síon Head where he tried his hand at rock climb­ing and, as the photo shows, he wasn’t in the least both­ered about hang­ing over the edge of a cliff.

Mícheál, at­tributes hill walk­ing, the oc­ca­sional game of golf, eat­ing well, chal­leng­ing your­self, vol­un­teer­ing in the com­mu­nity and be­ing as ac­tive as pos­si­ble as the best path to pos­i­tive age­ing. With all that, and a lot more be­sides in his kit­bag, there was no bet­ter man for the job of launch­ing the Bank of Ire­land Pos­i­tive Age­ing Week, which is all about ex­plor­ing the pos­i­tive as­pects of get­ting older and cel­e­brat­ing with the older peo­ple in our com­mu­ni­ties.

Hun­dreds of events take place around the coun­try dur­ing Pos­i­tive Age­ing Week. Rock climb­ing wouldn’t be in­cluded in many of them, but there are more se­date propo­si­tions such as cof­fee morn­ings, tea dances, quizzes and walks.
