From: Communications

Subject: Covid Regulations - Update 1 Deireadh Fómhair 2020


As part of our policy of reviewing our Covid restrictions on an ongoing basis and following engagement with NPHET, we are requesting that all of our units actively discourage huddles before, during and after games in the days and weeks ahead. 

We are also asking for all of our teams to avoid the following: 

  • Team photographs (unless in seated area conforming to social distancing) 
    Shaking hands with other players and personnel 
    Celebrations and commiserations involving close physical contact 
    Players are also expected to:   
  • follow Public Health Advice with respect to personal hygiene and etiquette 
    social distance from broadcasters if and when being interviewed 
    refrain from swapping their shirts 
    avoid congregating in indoor areas or passing through pitch-side tunnels at the same time as opponents. 
    These guidelines should be discussed with all teams who are still involved in competitions.

We appreciate the challenges some of these restrictions pose but as public health measures and as part of GAA efforts to tackle the spread of the virus, compliance is crucial. 

Is Muidne,

Academy training is back in Celbridge GAA

Written by PRO. Posted in frontpage

Celbridge GAA club has a vibrant juvenile section active in Gaelic football, hurling and camogie.

The aim of our academy training in Celbridge GAA club is to introduce the children of Celbridge to our national games in a fun and friendly environment and in accordance with the development guidelines and player pathway materials developed by the camogie Association, the Ladies Gaelic Football Association (LGFA) and the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA).

We are delighted to confirm training will now resume on Saturday the 12th September for the Autumn 2020 season and we will be delighted for any boys and girls to come down and join us. This is a great opportunity for kids to become involved in team sports, to make new friends, to develop fine motor skills and keep fit, and most importantly to have some fun.

Age Groups: Primary School going kids, born in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Training Times: Currently training every Saturday morning from 11:15AM to 12:15PM

Venue: Celbridge GAA grounds

For any kids joining for the first time, please complete the GAA Covid19 eLearning module on behalf of your child:

This only needs to be completed once and if you have already completed it for another sibling that is sufficient. Once you have completed the eLearning module, it will generate a certificate of completion in your name. Please save a screenshot of this and send it to us directly or show a screenshot of this to the Covid supervision upon check-in ahead of training.

In addition you must complete the GAA/Gaelic Games Health Questionnaire on behalf of your child and yourself (if you are the accompanying guardian for training). We would request that only one adult accompany each child for training to limit the number in attendance upon the sideline. This questionnaire will need to be completed each week ahead of training.

This health questionnaire can be completed here:

What to wear and what to bring:

As all training will be outdoors, it is recommended that kids dress in layers to keep warm. And bring their own clearly labeled drink bottle.
It is compulsory for all children playing Gaelic football to wear an approved LGFA/GAA mouth guard.
Footballs will be provided, however for hurling/camogie we have a very limited number of loaner helmets and hurleys available.

However given the challenges/risks in sanitizing equipment after use due to Covid19, we strongly encourage the use of own hurleys and helmets.
