Below please note some important updates and clarifications in relation to Covid matters as we move to Level 5 across the country:
For Consideration of Clubs:
These are the only instances in which Indoor facilities should be used.
Essential property checks maintenance and pitch upkeep is permitted in Level 5
In the case of Community Employment Scheme workers, local scheme operators will need to confirm the position to each club. We would remind all units that an extension of cover request is required for engagement of such workers at club properties
Inter County Matters
All Senior inter county games in both the 26 and 6 Counties must be played behind closed doors.
This means only essential personnel should be in attendance. A maximum of 40 persons per team will be allowed access to games. This figure should include all players, management, coaches, ancillary backroom personnel and officials. There can be NO EXCEPTIONS to this and this needs to be clearly communicated to team managements, players and backroom personnel. Counties hosting league games will have ultimately responsibility for ensuring access is limited as outlined.
For clarity, the 80 team personnel (40 per team) is in addition to essential match day personnel such as Match officials (Referees, Linesmen, Umpires), Media, Streaming personnel and required event officials (stewards etc.)
