Sligo-Born Munster rugby star Cathal Sheridan is one of the new ambassadors of a campaign encouraging fans and players of the game to speak about and look after their mental health.
Called “Tackle Your Feelings”, the campaign has seen national and international rugby stars come forward to tell their own personal story of the issues they’ve faced off the pitch. It is being led by the Irish Rugby Union Players’ Association.
At his announcement as a new ambassador, the 27-year-old spoke of his battle with negative thoughts and emotions for almost a year while recovering from injury.
You can read more about Cathal and the campaign in the sports section of this week’s Sligo Weekender newspaper – in shops now.
