Covid Restrictions – lmportant Update Feb 2021

Unfortunately, it is looking likely that there will be no Gaelic Games this side of Easter.

The GAA provided clarification of the current situation with an update expected at the end of February/early March.

The Government representatives clarified that inter-county Gaelic Games activity is not covered under the current Level 5 exemptions for elite sports. As such a return to intercounty training or games is not permitted
under the current restrictions. It was also clear that there will not be any change to this position post-March 5th when the restrictions currently in place are reviewed. It is the view of the GAA’s Covid Advisory group that no on field activity will be permitted – training or games – until Easter at the earliest. ln the interim, it is expected that the Government will publish an updated “Living with Covid” plan and we expect that this will provide clarity on when clubs and counties are likely to be allowed return to training and games in 2021. It should also provide clarity on when other off-field club activities may be permitted to resume.
