International Men’s Day 2019 

Theme: Men leading by example

Event: Walk in UCD

Using the theme of ‘men leading by example’ and to promote men’s health, we asked Brian Mullins, former star Gaelic football player/manager and current UCD’s Director of Sport and Health Promotion to give a short talk and lead an enthusiastic group of walkers on UCD’s ‘Millennium Walk’, a 3.2km meandering walk through the UCD campus.
