The story behind the Move Your Mood Campaign

As the clocks go back and the darkness draws in that bit earlier people of all ages often find their energy levels decrease which in turn affects their mood, their activity levels & their diet. The nights are now getting longer, and the mornings are getting darker. Here in Ireland there has been little research done on the subject but research carried out by the Weather Channel and YouGov (2014) in the UK found that 57% of people claimed their mood worsened during the winter in comparison to the summer months, with 66% saying that this lead to them feeling less active and more fatigued in the winter months.
The purpose of the Move Your Mood Campaign is to create an awareness for people, children & teenagers on the importance of keeping themselves & their families active & to highlight the positive effect it can have on their mental health – especially during the winter months.

Irish Rugby Management Team Pick Their Perfect Footwear

It has finally arrived. The World Cup is here and it seem like everyone in the country is so excited. As official retail partner of Irish Rugby, everyone here at Intersport Elverys is glued to all the news coming from Japan and the happenings of the Irish team.

Before Ireland headed off on the plane to Japan, the management and backroom team dropped into our store in the Retail Park in Galway. They got some product advice and tips from our staff as they each picked the perfect performance and training footwear before heading off on one of the most important journeys of their lives. Each member of the team left more than happy, with footwear that suited their specific needs. We hope that they are still wearing them in Japan come November!
