GAA seek clarity on new restrictions

Yesterday it was confirmed by Tasoiseach Micheal Martin that sporting events would take place behind closed doors until September 13 at the earliest.

This comes only a couple of weeks removed from when games were scheduled to include up to 500 spectators.

As such that never came into effect after a rise in Covid 19 cases.

Now the organisation faces another setback.

In response to the new guidelines, the GAA released a short statement outlining how they would like a meeting with Dr Ronan Glynn to show the evidence as to why the decision was made.

“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.”
