The GAA and COVID-19

The GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association have cancelled all activity at all levels, including, but not limited to, training, games and meetings due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

This situation will not change until a further decision is made by the various associations in consultation with the Government and Health Service Executive (HSE).

Ranelagh Gaels ask all members to act responsibly during this time – to practice social distancing, to practice good hand hygiene and to cough and sneeze into the elbow. For further advice, please visit the HSE’s website.

We also ask that our members are good neighbours and remain active in their community, checking in on vulnerable people and offering assistance wherever possible, whilst still remaining vigilant about the spread of disease.

Support local businesses where possible, avoid panic-buying and – most importantly – remember that we’re all in this together. There may be tough times ahead, but we’ll get to the other side together.

The GAA’s website has further information on this subject.
