Social distancing

Garda David Leahy wishes to send on the following message ;
Gardai are being told to advise people on social distancing ,
the Government recommends that we stay at least two meters apart.
Parents are urged to strongly encourage teenagers and young adults especially about this recommendation .
There is a big improvement on people’s compliance in the last week but there is more to be done and we can’t relax ,don’t be shy to remind people who are in your company to be careful of this at all times .
David Leahy ,Garda.


As touched on by David above we are in the midst of a worldwide pandemic ,it is a worrying time for everybody but especially our older neighbors .We know that face to face contact is difficult but a phone call is always good and would brighten up a persons day who otherwise may not have heard from anybody in a while.
Remember always that keeping apart is what keeps this virus away from us ,it may be tough but at the moment it’s the only sure way to stay safe.

Our games are postponed at the moment and there is no sure date for the return of the leagues,the championship in Intermediate hurling has also now been postponed from its early May date and again no time has been set for it being played.

We are in uncharted territory with this virus it is a cruel thing and we must be careful....wash your hands regularly and keep up the social distancing these are the recommendations so please comply with them and we will all get through this tough time in good health.

The executive of the Cork County Board met via video conference on March 17th and primarily with regard to the safety of our members and of the wider community has decided to postpone the all first round games in the Premier senior,Senior A ,Premier Intermediate,Intermediate A and lower Intermediate Championships in Hurling and Football,as well as the County stages of the U21 football championships and the County junior B and C competitions.
These first round club championship had been scheduled across the four weekends in April and the first two weekends in May but are now postponed en bloc.
All other games and activities including those under the jurisdiction of Rebel Og remain suspended as per GAA directive and advice from the HSE .
This will continue until we are directed otherwise.
The scheduling and format of the County championship for 2020 is now subject to review,in consultation with Munster Council,the national Competition Control Commitee and our clubs.
Club league regulations and completion dates will also be reviewed once a resumption of activities has been confirmed.
The offices of Pairc Ui Chaoimh will be closed until such time as current restrictions are lifted.County Board staff will work remotely and are contactable by email or via the office phone as normal.The office phone has been diverted to a staff members phone and will be answered during office hours.
We can confirm that Pairc Ui Chaoimh has been made available to the HSE who are considering possible uses for the stadium and we hereby wish to acknowledge the efforts that our club units have already undertaken in assisting local health services and assisting vulnerable people in our communities at this difficult time.
The County Board meeting scheduled for April 7th has been canceled .The Executive and CCC will continue to meet regularly by video confrence and will provide a report to clubs by email after all meetings.
Once again we urge all members to adhere to directives from the GAA,the HSE and the Department of Health during the current pandemic.
