In view of the Government’s decision today to close all schools, colleges, and childcare facilities until 29th March and to restrict mass gatherings, the club’s committee and coaches held a brief meeting this evening.

In the National interest, the club has decided that there will be no regular juvenile training sessions during this period.

Athletes may use the facility to exercise individually but observe the best practice on social distancing if others present. If doing so, athletes should contact their main coach for advice on what training to do and when to do it, especially those who qualified for the All-Irelands.

The club regrets having to do this but is guided by the need to protect the most vulnerable in society by significantly limiting social interaction for the period in question to help reduce the spread of the virus.

The club will review the situation towards the end of the period and hopefully will be able to resume normal activities at that point depending on the public health guidance.

Wednesday the 27th. .
