Freedom Fit Festival – Askamore Talk – Renowned Psychologist Niamh Fitzpatrick – Tues Feb 13th, 8 pm

Using your Mind for Optimum Performance in Sport, Work and Life

 – a talk with Niamh Fitzpatrick

NF FFThis workshop will look at one of the key psychological factors when it comes to feeling happy in life or realising your potential in sport or business.

This session will be practical, fun, thought-provoking and relevant to people at all stages of life.

People will come away with actions to put into practice straight away. This is a session that will make a real difference to someones life.

Don’t miss this fascinating talk in our own Activity Centre on Tuesday, Feb 13th at 8 pm.

We are extremely privileged to have Niamh coming to give her talk.

One of the biggest roles in her early years was helping the 1996 Wexford Senior Hurling team to an epic win in the All Ireland Championship, bringing the Liam Mc Carthy cup back to Wexford for the first time in 28 years.

She has since worked with many other hurling and football GAA teams at Club, Minor and Senior level, several of whom have won provincial and All Ireland Championship titles. In addition, Niamh has worked with athletes from a wide range of other sports including equestrian (eventing, show-jumping, horse racing), hockey, canoeing, rowing, tennis, swimming, golf, cycling, badminton and athletics.

Liam Griffin, Manager, Wexford Senior Hurling Team 1996.

“I had the good fortune to work with Niamh Fitzpatrick while I was Manager of the Wexford Senior Hurling Team. Niamh was an invaluable member of our Management team. She supported our players and each individual on our panel both on and off the field with great professional skill and above all empathy. Our players loved her – we all did. Niamh also supported me as Manager with great help and advice on so many different issues. I can honestly say that Wexford would not have won the All Ireland Hurling Final, our first in 28 years, without the input of Niamh Fitzpatrick. Niamh is a lady with exceptional knowledge which she imparts with absolute integrity in such an understated way. We have not and will never forget her great efforts on our behalf”.
