Pausing of Lotto Draws. Notice to Club Members

 

Due to the Covid 19 restrictions and the closure of the Club facilities it is necessary to pause all Lotto draws for the next month when we will review it.

ALL tickets sold for this weeks draw, 19th March will be held over until the first draw on resumption.

ALL annual pre-paid tickets will have the time extended, eg from 31st Oct or we can credit them by reducing the payment due for 2021 taking into account the number of draws not done in 2020.

Also ALL on-line players will retain their credit for future draws.

The option to purchase tickets on-line will continue and any tickets purchased will commence with the 1st draw on resumption.

Many thanks to all who have payed and supported our Lotto Fund raising over the years.

Thanks

James O'Shea,
Chairman, Lotto Committee.

Subject: IMPORTANT: Training restrictions

A chara,

The GAA's Medical, Scientific and Welfare Committee, the Gaelic Player's Association and the Gaelic Athletic Medical Association (the representative body for Team Doctors) wish to stress the crucial importance of all players and team personnel adhering strictly to HSE guidelines in relation to social distancing and other aspects of the current Covid 19 pandemic.

In practical terms, this means the following:
Players should not congregate, even in small numbers, for training sessions.
Indoor shared Gym facilities are to be avoided, as such environments pose considerable limitations on a users ability to adhere to both 'Social Distancing' and contact transmission guidelines advised by the HSE.
Team managers, backroom personnel and players at all levels have not only a duty of care to each other but also to the wider community around them at this time.

It is expected therefore that County and Club teams across the country will adhere to both the letter and spirit of what has been asked of them at this challenging time.

Le meas,

Dick Clerkin (Chairman, GAA Medical Sceintific and Welfare Committee)
Paul Flynn (CEO, Gaelic Player's Association)
Dr Sean Moffatt (Chairman, G.A.M.A)

Facilities Update.

Celbridge GAA Club  have made the decision to close our club bar, hall and meeting room facilities from 6pm this evening night (Sunday 15th) until further notice.

Celbridge Gaa Facilities

To All members

As everyone is aware with the response to the Covid-19 is to suspend all activity to include all games, training and team gatherings.

With regards to access to the facility as individual members

As with other licensed premises the bar will remain open subject to numbers (normal open hours). We ask all members using the facility to use the sanitizers provided before and after you arrive and follow the instructions issued by the HSE.

In regards to the Gym it is the Clubs executive view the Gym should remain closed to all members during this period for there is no way of guaranteeing people clean the items they have used. We are of the view this is of the best interest of our members especially our players.

In regards to meetings if you are to have them (only if essential) please use them in the Bar, be careful of the numbers attending and use the sanitizers etc before and after you leave.

Follow the instructions issued by the HSE including distancing

Every little bit helps and we will get to normality asap
