UPDATE: Monaleen GAA Club officers are currently reviewing the GAA document setting out terms and requirements for a return to play. While Public Health advises that outdoor sports recommenced on June 8th, this is not the GAA position. Non-contact training may recommence on June 29, subject to the GAA giving a final go ahead, and reinstating player insurance, in groups of 10 with two coaches. However, there are a number of additional requirements and protocols, including completion of a health questionnaire, the presence of a Covid Compliance Officer, players arriving fully togged, amongst others. All buildings must remain closed. Officers from each section of the club will begin to put all of these measures in place, and we will keep all of our members informed of the steps being taken. Unfortunately, in the meantime, and until otherwise notified, no GAA activities can take place. There is no insurance for any injuries. All members are asked to respect the position of the GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association as set out in their joint document. We look forward to your support over the coming weeks and months. Caroline O’Kane, John Noonan, Audrey Ruschitzko, James Johnson.
