Rhode GAA Walking Track
Our walking track remains open for our members to exercise safely .
Members are asked to obey signage and maintain Covid-19 social distancing measures.
We Ask that Those using our facilities respect the grounds by either bringing home your rubbish or use the many bins that surround the walking track .
From June 7th, competitive and challenge games at all levels of club and inter county are permitted to take place. However, it is essential that we continue to proceed with caution and that the Return to Play Protocols continue to be followed.
In terms of attendances, 100 spectators will be permitted to attend GAA games (club and inter county) in the 26 Counties from Monday, June 7th. This number is in addition to players, team personnel, stewards or media attendees.
Where a ground has a minimum accredited capacity of 5,000, ie O, Connor Park a maximum of 200 spectators can attend.
It is likely that from July 5th, up to 200 spectators may be permitted to attend games, and up to 500 may be permitted in grounds with a minimum capacity of 5,000. However this will depend on progress in broader society – if these increases are to be permitted, we will advise in advance of July 5th.
Where attendances are permitted at games, the advice in the attached document, prepared by the National Health and Safety Committee needs to be followed. For underage games, where parents are attending in a child-protection capacity, they will count as part of the 100 spectators permitted to attend.
All grounds should have appropriate dispersion measures in place at all entrances and exits and parents/guardians should be advised that congregation in large groups on or outside club grounds is not permitted.
Dressing Rooms For club games, Dressing rooms must remain closed. This is to ensure the risk of players or backroom personnel being classified as Close contacts is minimised. As in the Summer of 2020, Players should arrive ready to warm-up and play and leave the ground once the relevant game is over.
Get well wishes are extended to all of the people of the parish who are ill or hospitalised at the moment..
