South Dublin County Council is offering a range of activities and resources as part of a new “In This Together” initiative, launched by An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar. The campaign aims to help everyone in Ireland to Stay Connected, Stay Active, and look after their Mental Health throughout the Covid-19 Emergency.
The Campaign encourages everyone to set a new daily activity which helps them to feel a little healthier or a little happier as we deal with Covid-19. It signposts useful advice to help people of every age group to cope with the ongoing restrictions, whether they are looking after children, dealing with self-isolation, preparing for the Leaving Cert, or coping with cabin fever.
In This Together draws together a huge range of activities that you can pursue in your home or your locality, by yourself or with family members or with friends online. There are ideas and activities for people of all ages. Just some highlights include:
- SDC Sports Partnership live exercise classes
- The Libraries Borrow Box
- On line music classes with Music Generation
- 5 minute crafts with our Library service
- Age Friendly News
- Bouncing baby book club
- LEO online courses
In This Together also draws together the huge range of advice and support that is available online for people of all ages, including:
- Mindmindr app
- Mental Health Facebook talks from 27th to 30th April

The initiative brings together National Government, local government, Government Agencies, community and voluntary sectors, and the Community Call Forums around the country.
