Hurling and Camogie activity has resumed at Ballyloughane and it is great to see so many members participating on these bright summer evenings. We would like to acknowledge the enormous amount of planning and work which has taken place in advance of re-opening and continues each training session by the teams and coaches to comply with the regulations. It is an extremely difficult and challenging time and we must all take responsibility to comply with the guidelines.
We would like to remind those participating in training and/or matches must complete the COVID questionnaire online on each and every occasion PRIOR to attending for training for contract tracing purposes. This also applying when playing a match away at another Club.
We request that members continue to keep themselves informed of the updated government and public health guidelines and most importantly if you are feeling unwell to stay at home and contact your doctor for advice.
In addition, in line with Government guidelines - players who leave the country for holiday or any other reason will not be able to train or play with their team for 14 days from the date they return.
