★ Important Club Together Announcement ★

 

Thank you to every body from Celbridge GAA who made contact to volunteer for the SuperValue Club Together initiative.

Please see the below note from Musgraves.

Subject: Important Club Together Announcement

Dear Club Together Champions,

Thank you for getting involved in the Club Together initiative and for mobilising your club volunteers. We’ve been blown away by the reaction and willingness to go above and beyond to help those who most need it.

The Government will be launching a Local Authority led initiative this Thursday 2nd April which also seeks to support the elderly and most vulnerable to Covid-19 who have been asked to stay at home.

In order to ensure a seamless service and avoid confusion for those in most need we are closing our Club Together helpline and this email. All requests will now come through a Local Authority operated service in each county. We would encourage you and your volunteers to make yourselves and known to this service.

We thank you and commend you on your volunteer service. Rest assured that if you are shopping in either SuperValu or Centra we will support you with staff in store to help, designated checkout lanes & priority shopping hours in many stores. SuperValu and Centra will be there for you. The most important thing in this time of crisis is that these elderly and vulnerable members of our community are supported. Rest assured SuperValu and Centra stores will continue to do our absolute best to help in any way we can.

Thank you again for your support,
Best regards,
The Club Together team

Update COVID - 19; 25ú Márta 2020

Hope you are keeping well & stay well.

A chairde,

 I wish to draw your attention again to our previously issued guidance document of March 20th.

We advised you that, until March 29th, games and training were suspended, club gyms were to close, and Player Injury Fund cover was suspended.

We subsequently instructed that club bars should also close for the period.

 

Club Operations

Please be advised that, in line with recent government announcements, these measures and closures are now extended to Sunday April 19 inclusive, at which stage arrangements will be reviewed.

In addition, we are now instructing GAA Clubs to close their facilities completely.

This is to include the use of all pitches and property for recreational purposes, including walking, casual games or gatherings.

Where it is not possible to restrict access please erect signage to the effect that all GAA facilities are closed and all activity suspended.

In order to facilitate an orderly resumption of activities when circumstances permit, Clubs are encouraged to proceed as normal with their membership registration process where practical. Clubs of course should be mindful of the possible changed financial circumstances of members.

Similarly, club lottos may proceed if they are run on an online basis and do not involve wholesale engagement with the public.

Clubs are also advised to refrain from undertaking new capital projects while support funding for this type of work is suspended.

 

Community Support

As a national / international organisation, we have a part to play in emphasising the need to practice social distancing, as outlined by the authorities.

It is imperative that we exercise extreme caution keeping two metres between people when taking physical exercise while encouraging people to consider using off-peak times when they are less likely to meet others.

Attached is the latest messaging from the HSE covering guidelines around volunteering which we advise our clubs to consider as they involve themselves in community-based volunteer efforts.

Individual volunteers are asked to register with Volunteer Ireland (26 Counties) and Volunteer Now (Six Counties).

We would like to thank everyone who has helped the GAA adhere to government guidelines up to this point.

We would also like to assure you that we, and the wider GAA team across our counties and provinces, are working hard to ensure that we are in the best possible position to return to our games when that time comes.

In the meantime, please stay safe, look out for one another and continue to adhere to the instructions of the Government and the Health Authorities at this most challenging time.

 

Go raibh maith agaibh,

Tomás Ó Riain Seán Ó hÓráin

Ard Stiúrthóir Uachtarán
