BOD will oversee charity and community projects for the firm, founded by Niall Horgan (top left), Karl Swaine and Diarmuid McSweeney (top right).

Diarmuid writes;

Brian is someone we feel truly embodies the Gym+Coffee ethos- to Make Life Richer. Gym+Coffee will be running its annual Summer Stretch Series, throughout the month of June, and Brian will be issuing a ‘Call to Arms’ to get involved! June will be packed with events taking place throughout the month from instore to local parks and group hikes.

Brian and the G+C team will be challenging the community to make time during their weekends to get active, spend time outside and get to know more members of the Gym+Coffee Make Life Richer community!
