A chairde,

We hope you, your families, members and friends are keeping well since we were last in touch.

Thank you for your ongoing support and attached are further guidelines addressing some of the issues that have been raised by our clubs and counties recently.

Included is advice and updates around the following:

  • Pitch maintenance (which is permitted within certain guidelines)
  • GAA Volunteer guidelines for all Volunteers (both 26 and Six Counties)
  • Emergency template for access to GAA facilities
  • Individual county by county contact numbers for Local Government Community Support (only 26 Counties set up at this point)
  • An open letter to our members
  • Latest HSE advice and information

Yesterday the Irish government launched the ‘Community Call’ initiative which aims to encourage everyone to assist those in need of help in their immediate locality.

The GAA’s ‘Club Together’ Initiative with SuperValu and Centra falls under the auspices of this government plan and much of the information provided along with this email relates back to the Government programme.

While of immediate relevance to our units operating in the 26 counties, much of it is applicable to all of our units.

The most successful and best attended GAA games development initiative each year is our Kelloggs Cúl Camps programme.

In this regard the association is committed, and planning is ongoing, to provide a Cúl Camp programme in 2020 for our young Gaelic games enthusiasts over the summer.

We are looking forward to arrival of 172,000 kits starting the end of April.

For more and regular updates stay in touch with our website.

Once again, we would like to re-iterate our gratitude to you all for helping us and the country as a whole at this challenging time.

The community spirit shown across a raft of different but equally vital initiatives and the adherence to the government guidelines has been hugely important in our collective efforts to deal with the Covid-19 outbreak.

We appreciate there is a considerable amount of information attached with this email and while all of it may not be relevant to every GAA unit, club and county officers can decide what is of most use to them and their members and use accordingly.

Please stay safe and continue to play your part with social distancing, cocooning and coughing/sneezing etiquette.

Go raibh maith agaibh,
