Cuala GAA Club will await guidance from the GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association, and from the Dublin County Boards with regard to any changed protocols in relation to training and the playing of games, arising from Tuesday’s change of advice in relation to sport.

Wednesday’s programme of U12 matches has been called off by Dublin GAA who announced this evening that:

Following today’s Government decision to prohibit spectators from attending sporting fixtures CCC1 responsible for under 8 to under 12 Club activity within the County have decided that the U12 fixtures scheduled for Wednesday 19th August will not proceed.

The other juvenile committee CCC2 (U13 to U16) along with Dublin County Board will issue further update as soon as the full facts are known.

The initial reaction of the GAA came in a statement issued from Croke Park this evening:

Following this evening’s unexpected announcement the GAA invites Dr Ronan Glynn and NPHET to present the empirical evidence which informed the requirement for the Association to curtail its activities.

The Association will tonight be issuing an invitation to Dr Glynn to meet with its Covid Advisory Group in this regard without delay.

The GAA and its members remain at all times committed to protecting public health.

Clearly Cuala and the wider GAA community will do what is needed and required to abide by public health advice as it has done throughout.

This was a disappointing day but sport will still continue.

We will advise teams once clarity has been confirmed on the new restrictions and how they should be applied.
