When Donegal man Billy McMahon says that taking part in a Men on the Move pilot programme was “absolutely life-changing”, he isn’t exaggerating. The indoor and outdoor exercise sessions organised at Ray Community Centre by Donegal Sports Partnership in conjunction with the HSE back in 2015 saw him shed three stone and gain a whole new social circle as he turned 50.

That new-found sense of well-being led to him implementing a slew of changes in the years that followed, the most dramatic of which has been quitting dairy farming 15 months ago and converting a van into a campervan last year.
