Dr Eddie Murphy, Clinical Psychologist and Tackle Your Feelings advisor will add to the discussion by providing practical advice as to how attendees can proactively manage their mental wellbeing.

Speaking about the event Cathal Sheridan said, “I would encourage anyone with an interest in their mental and emotional wellbeing to attend this event. It’s a great opportunity for people within the Munster community to come together to learn and discuss how they can tackle their own feelings.”
Omar Hassanein, CEO, IRUPA, said, “We are delighted to be hosting the first of our four provincial panel discussions which will take place in Thomond Park in Limerick. The Tackle Your Feelings campaign is a really important element of the work that we are doing to help people improve their mental wellbeing and highlights some of the struggles that our rugby players experience as part of their everyday lives.

Elaine Hayes, Corporate Responsibility spokesperson at Zurich, commented, “At Zurich, we pride ourselves on a commitment to making a difference in the local communities in which we operate and that is why we are delighted to be partnering with IRUPA to encourage greater debate and awareness of mental wellbeing in Ireland. As an issue that affects such a large proportion of Irish people, mental health is something that needs to be discussed more openly and honestly; be it on the pitch, in the office, or in general day-to-day life. We hope the people of Munster will come and join us for an evening that is sure to inspire a conversation amongst both rugby supporters and non-rugby supporters alike and keep mental wellbeing top of mind.”
