Notice from Kerry County Board Re – Inter-Club activity for remainder of year.
Please note Inter-Club games will not be resuming for the remainder of this year. Activity at all levels (Senior & Juvenile) including collective training is also suspended.

All outstanding games (both District & County) will be picked up in the New Year with exact dates etc to be confirmed.
The inter-club games programme we had planned for during the inter-county period (Oct/Nov/Dec) has also been shelved.

Subject: Covid Update.. 5u Deireadh Fomhair 2020
The GAAs Management Committee has today endorsed a decision to suspend all GAA Club games at all levels with immediate effect and until further notice.
The decision has been taken in the interest of public safety following a number of incidents that have been brought to our attention in recent days. In particular, post-match celebrations and a lack of social distancing at certain events have proved disappointing and problematic.
This directive applies to all ages and all grades across the island.
Club Social Centres / bars are also to close.
Training will continue to be permitted as per the guidelines outlined for the relevant levels in the Government’s National Framework for Living with Covid 19 and relevant guidelines in the Six Counties.
The GAA will continue to monitor the situation in the coming days and weeks, regarding changes in government guidelines, before liaising with our units accordingly.
The Association would also like to acknowledge all of those units who have worked diligently in complying with the public health advice around the staging of our games and training sessions since activity resumed.
More than ever, we ask that you continue with this approach where training sessions for your players is continuing.
