COVID-19: In line with the position advised by Limerick County GAA board, Monaleen GAA club respectfully requests parents not to send their children to club grounds during the period of social distancing put in place by the Government. This position has been taken to limit community transmission of the Coronavirus and in order to protect vulnerable people in our locality. Unfortunately people, both young and old, are still congregating in the clubhouse field. Signs have now been erected clearly indicating that the pitch is closed, with access prohibited. Adults, please lead by example, parents, please tell your children why it is important to keep a social distance. We must stay apart for the safety of all of our community.

The courts are now unavailable for play. The committee hopes everyone understands why this decision was being taken and we all look forward to the day we can enjoy the game we love in safety again.
