SAFE RETURN TO GAELIC GAMES
In light of Friday’s announcement that we can reopen and begin to get back to the field from June 29th, the club is working hard to put plans in place to ensure all our teams can return to GAA safely (see measures below).
We need membership ASAP to enable us to draw up plans for a safe return to play - ensuring that we are adhering to all guidelines so that everyone is safe in the field. We also need membership to have all contact info so that we can send out detailed information on the protocols directly to each participant in advance of training restarting.

All buildings remain closed
All training is non-contact in this phase
Small groups – 10 players & two coaches in a dedicated area of the field
