Some of Ireland’s best known former and current athletes and experts in fitness, nutrition, health and wellness will be descending on Dublin’s RDS this March for the first ever Outdoor Revolution.


Taking place in the RDS, Dublin on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th March, Outdoor Revolution aims to get Ireland active and healthy by embracing the outdoors and all that Ireland has to offer. The initial line-up will feature:

· Olympic silver medal winner Sonia O’Sullivan;

· Former Ireland international footballer and current sports columnist, Stephen Hunt;

· Leading obesity expert Professor Donal O’Shea;

· Former professional road cyclist, Seán Kelly;

· Performance psychologist consultant Gerry Hussey.

Commenting at today’s launch, John O’Brien, Co-Founder of Outdoor Revolution and former All-Ireland winning Tipperary hurler, said: “Outdoor Revolution will be Ireland’s largest outdoor sports, health and wellness show. We’re delighted to be able to bring so many of Ireland’s leading current and retired athletes and health and wellness experts to this event. There is growing awareness throughout Ireland of the huge importance for people of all ages to look after their health and fitness, and we want people to embrace the outdoors to do so.

“There are so many activities you can do outdoors in this beautiful country of ours that cost little to no money, and the benefits are countless – not only are you looking after your physical health, being outdoors has untold benefits to our mental health and overall wellbeing.

“We hope our athletes and experts will show our attendees that there is a world of health and fitness opportunities waiting outdoors, whether you’re a novice jogger or an aspiring long-distance cyclist!”

The two-day event will incorporate talks, panel discussions, fitness classes, demonstrations and workshops. Panel discussions will focus on topics including healthy supplement use; expert advice on taking up running, cycling, swimming and adventure sports; and the benefits of outdoor exercise to mental health.

Interactive activities will include beginner yoga and pilates classes, cooking demonstrations and workshops, free health screenings, and opportunities to try out the latest innovations in running and cycling equipment and technology.

Outdoor Revolution is the brainchild of John O’Brien and his friend and business partner, sports physiotherapist Tomás O’Connell. As well as encouraging beginners to take up outdoor sports, John and Tomás want to discuss and highlight the opportunities out there for amateur and professional athletes facing retirement.

“We’ll have nutrition and physiotherapy experts on hand throughout Outdoor Revolution to advise attendees on what sports would help them to maintain their fitness and health after they’ve given up field sports and protect them from injuries.”
