The Return of Club activities:

Training in groups of ten is permitted from June 29th which is also the date when pitches around the county will be allowed to reopen. Health questionnaires which will involve temperature checking will have to be completed by individuals before they travel to training sessions and clubs to appoint numerous COVID-19 supervisors. The club season is scheduled to run from the last day of July to October 11th. Clubs are only allowed to resume contact training eleven days before the provisional start of the championship. Clubs are to be educated on COVID-19 before facilities can reopen with appropriate signage to be erected in suitable locations around facilities including pitch side reinforcing social distancing, hand and respiratory hygiene, avoidance of personal contact and spitting. Sanitiser dispensers are to be put in place at club grounds. Dressing rooms, gyms and social areas are to remain closed in Phase 3. Clubs have been advised that toilets are to be “regarded as potentially contaminated areas”. Doors and windows are to stay open were appropriate to allow for ventilation. A regular cleaning programme with daily deep disinfection to be followed. A medical isolation room will now be a compulsory piece of infrastructure for the “unlikely event that a player becomes unwell during a training session” so that there is a facility were they can isolate immediately. Dressing rooms could be used for this purpose as they will not be in use. Each GAA club will be required to have a number of COVID supervisors. They will have to complete the Gaelic Games online education module. Every GAA team is expected to have an individual with responsibility for COVID-19 supervision whose main duties will include distributing and collating health questionnaires before each session or game, to ensure the sanitising of facilities is completed before and after each session or game, maintaining a record of attendees. Questionnaires are to be handed to the supervisor upon entry to the ground Access to dressing rooms, clubhouse and shower areas is not allowed until further notice, the GAA has confirmed. The use of toilets will be allowed “on a controlled basis”. Individuals attending GAA activities are encouraged to walk or cycle to the venue. Members from different households are not allowed travel together in the one car according to the document. Team meetings have been discouraged by the GAA’s COVID Advisory Group. “Eliminate all non-essential gatherings and put robust control measures in place for essential interaction,” is the recommendation. If team meetings are held, they should be done so outdoors or online. From Phase 3 onwards, teams must train in small groups of ten only with two coaches in a designated area of the field. All players and personnel involved must complete the mandatory Gaelic Games online education module which will be available on the GAA eLearning portal. A certificate of completion is to be obtained by COVID supervisors.

Well done to all from our parish who took part in the Connacht Scór na nÓg finals in Claremorris last weekend. First up from our team on the day was Caoimhe Mooney who gave a powerful rendition of a ballad called Gleanntáin Ghlas Ghaoth Dobhair which was written by her grand uncle. Next up was our ballad group, consisting of Emily Gannon, Claire Flanagan, Síofra Mooney, Ailíse Maxwell and Caoimhe Mooney. They sang two ballads, My Home in Annaduff which was written by Fionnuala Maxwell and Bacach Shíl Andaí and they did a wonderful job on both, accompanied by Caoimhe on guitar. The last competition of the day saw our set dancers on stage – Caoimhe and Síofra Mooney, Laura and Claire Flanagan, Aobhlinn and Ailíse Maxwell, Eimear Healy and Katie Faughnan. They danced their hearts out and got a rousing response from the crowd. Huge thanks to Eithne Fox and Anna Crossley for their work with the dancers and to Fionnuala Maxwell for working with the singers. Unfortunately no medals came our way but the experience that the girls gained and their pride in representing the parish and county meant they were winners in so many ways.
