Return to play

After a three month absence, the club was delighted to re-open its pitches to a safe return to training for our players and coaches.

Our adult team’s commenced training from last Wednesday with a gradual return of all other teams. In conjunction with the executive, a designated club Covid committee and a club Covid Officer have been working very hard to ensure there is full compliance in relation to GAA’s guidelines on return to play procedures.

We are asking everyone to please take note of the club’s guidelines in relation to a safe return to play along with the importance of the GAA’s online e-learning module and health questionnaire, which all participants must complete before returning.

All information relating to areas such as training protocols and pitch access is published on the club’s communication channels.

Safety of our players, coaches, club personnel, parents and our community is paramount now training activity has resumed.

In return, we are asking everyone to work and co-operate with us fully to ensure that all Covid-19 guidelines and club notices are adhered to in order to keep everyone safe.
