GREAT TO HAVE COMPETITIVE ACTION RETURNING BUT WE NEED CAUTION WITH OUR ACTIONS!!

It was brilliant to have a competitive match in Páirc Uí Chinnéide last Saturday night with an entertaining game and gaining a victory in the process of Fr O’Neills but I would ask that if we could get the co-operation of all players, parents of players mentors & officials to read the eLearning Module that needs to be read through thoroughly & a return to play questionnaire that needs filling out for all attendees of the club. This is required for contact tracing purposes under HSE/Government Guidelines.

All players & coaches of the club should read the new rules & regulations under the Covid-19 emergency as released by Croke Park on Friday July 13th to understand what is acceptable going forward and what is not. There are new additions to Match Regulations and all teams and managers should read this document carefully.

Also, as spectators return to matches, there are guidelines for all spectators too. A Limit on the number of people at games will unfortunately remain at 200 people. Please read these guidelines carefully. Therefore, on Monday 20th July, the club host an East Cork Junior A Football Championship match in Páirc Uí Chinnéide. We ask all members and patrons from refraining from entering the facilities from 7pm onwards as from this time, you will need a ticket on the pitch as per Esat Cork Board regulations & Government restrictions of numbers in an outdoor setting. NO TICKET = NO ENTRY

Please remember next time that you enter Páirc Uí Chinnéide, we all have a responsibility to each other to behave appropriately to ensure the suppression of the virus. We also have guidelines for everyone entering Páirc Uí Chinnéide and we ask all persons entering the club grounds to adhere to these. As per GAA statement on July 10th “The use of face coverings is strongly advised for all patrons over the age of 13... Spectators must not enter the field of play at any time including pre-match, at half-time and other intervals and after the final whistle or at end-of-match presentations.”

Remember, our Club Motto at the front door of our Complex, “In our Club we help each other to be the best that we can be both on and off the field”.

KIERAN O’CONNOR RIP

This week, we start with the sad news of the passing of Aghada & Cork All Ireland medal winner Kieran O’Connor after a bravely borne rare illness which he fought with great determination & spirit. He was a warrior on the field, a gentleman off the field but was a true club man to his beloved Aghada. With Cork, he won three senior Munster Championship medals, a National Football League medal & that famous All Ireland Championship final victory in 2010 over Down.

On behalf of all members of Killeagh GAA Club, we send our deepest condolences to his wife Sinead and his three children, Kieran’s parents, Pat Snr. & Mary, brothers Pa & Johno, sister Ashling, his family & many friends and to his clubmates from Aghada GAA Club & Cork football team

Ar Dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

HOSTS GET OFF TO A FLYER AT HOME OVER O’NEILLS

Rebel Óg Eastern Fé 16 Hurling League Division 1B

Killeagh-Ita's 3-17 Fr. O'Neill's 2-10

Killeagh-Ita's Under 16 team, under the management of Gary Leahy, Eoin Fitzgibbon and Padraig Leahy, made a winning start to this season's league campaign (a three-match round-robin series which is in effect a championship by a different name) with a hard-earned victory over neighbours Fr. O'Neill's on a sunny summer Saturday evening in Páirc Uí Chinnéide. David Buckley opened the scoring after one minute and Colm Leahy restored our advantage after O'Neill's equalised from a free. Dylan McCarthy's free-taking (as well as his general contribution from play) was spot-on and this pushed us into a 0-6 to 0-2 lead after 12 minutes. O'Neill's then got a super goal with a brilliant high pull leaving goalkeeper Daniel Walsh with no chance, but within a minute a long free from Dylan, which may have got a subtle touch en route, ended up in the net to give use a 1-6 to 1-2 lead. Colm and Dylan added further points before half time while at the other end Tommy Morrison made a vital goal-line save and clearance to keep out the opposition just before half time.

Dylan and Colm continued the scoring into the second half while David Buckley added a second, but O'Neill's refused to give up and kept the differential small at all stages. Had their shooting in front of goal been more accurate, it could have been closer still. Sean Meade's point on 48 minutes stretched our lead to 1-16 to 1-9, before our second goal effectively put the game to bed. What a great team goal it was, with Diarmuid Buckley doing fantastic work around the middle of the pitch to break through and pass to Dylan McCarthy. When his ball came across the square, Darragh O'Brien took the correct option, pulling first time to connect and rive the ball to the net. Within two minutes, Colm Leahy, although injured, scored a peach of a goal when he doubled in the air on a ball from 20 metres out and planted it into the top right-hand corner of the net. O'Neill's continued to press, and despite the best efforts of our defence, where Conor Meade, Darragh O'Leary and Ben Kelly Budds were rock-solid throughout, they scored a goal that their toils deserved.

Next up we play St. Catherine's on Saturday August 1st, with our third game away to St. Colman's in mid-August.

Team: Daniel Walsh; Tommy Morrison, Conor Meade, Darragh O'Leary; Ben Kelly Budds, Ben Fogarty, Pierce Geary; Rory Motherway, Diarmuid Buckley; Ben Walsh, Dylan McCarthy, Barry Walsh; Sean Meade, Colm Leahy, David Buckley. Subs: Ciaran Brennan, Danny Fitzgerald, Jack O'Connor, Darragh O'Brien, Jason Harte, Liam Considine.

COACHING AND SAFEGUARDING COURSES

With training & games returned last week, a final call for all our mentors and coaches to fulfil their duties of completing their respective Coaching & Safeguarding courses with a matter of urgency. As

outlined prior to the Pandemic, all persons involved in helping out the team management or players that are in the Under 18 category will need to be E-Vetted.

We will be contacting the respective coaches/mentors who need to attend training in time, but for the moment we ask that ALL COACHES should start or complete the mandatory online E-Vetting process. You can do this by logging onto gaa.ie, search for the E-Vetting section and complete the necessary steps as outlined. We need these completed before we return to the green fields of Páirc Uí Chinnéide. Anyone that has an issue with it or has a query on the above subject, please contact the GAA Children’s Officer Grainne Fitzgerald on 087-6290214 or email childrensofficer.killeagh.cork@gaa.ie

COVID-19 HEALTH GUIDELINES

There have been a few changes to our Health Guidelines below. Over the next week as players, mentors & parents return to Páirc Uí Chinnéide, please take note of the following points that should be noted by all members;

1. All training, team gatherings & meetings may resume from June 27th.

2. All players should be coming to the field with the line of “Get in, Train & Get out!” over the next couple of weeks until further notice. Players should arrive no earlier than 10 minutes for your scheduled session and leave within 5 minutes of the completion of the session.

3. We ask that all players should arrive to Páirc Uí Chinnéide in separate cars (ie. No car-sharing) & that if parents could where possible stay in the cars for the duration of the training session or utilize the use of our walkway. We would recommend not to hang around in groups, adhere to Social Distancing guidelines and not to be leaning on the fencing as it could be very easy to spread to virus by touching the fence and passing it to someone else.

5. To minimise the risk of the Coronavirus spreading, our club shop will remain closed until further notice.

When using this facility, please adhere to Social Distancing guidelines (2m apart) and walk in an anti-clockwise direction keeping the Main Pitch to your left-hand side.

8. We ask that people using our walkway should be located within the county or within the 20km recommended radius and that you ‘Stay Local’. If shopping, support Local Businesses.

9. We ask all players, club members, parents of children in our Underage section & spectators to read the ‘Guidelines on Safe Return to Gaelic Games’ which is attached below. This is a living but important and essential document to understand on how to return to some normality in the coming weeks. Before each training session/match, we ask that each player answers the Health Questionnaire as per the Return to Play protocols.

10. Please follow all guidelines issued to the public by Government and HSE and especially those on hand washing, cough etiquette, face coverings, hygiene and social distancing both indoors and outdoors.

11. Please offer appropriate support to your neighbours, elderly people & those at risk in our community - checking in with a regular phone call is a good way to do this or helping them by purchasing their shopping during the week.

12. There will be toilets open for emergency use.

13. If you are unwell, feel sick or have any symptoms of Covid-19, please do not come to Páirc Uí Chinnéide, stay at home and self-isolate as per Public Health advice.

GAA STATEMENT ON COVID-19 CLUB EDUCATION PROGRAMME FOR CLUBS (12th JUNE 2020)

Since the publication of the Guidelines on Safe Return to Gaelic Games on 5 June, the GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association have partnered to develop a Covid-19 Club Education Programme to help those involved in Clubs return safely to Gaelic Games activities.

Through education on roles and responsibilities, the programme aims to reinforce how collective responsibility can help protect the health and welfare of all those involved in Gaelic Games and minimise the risk of transmission of Covid-19 in local communities.

The programme will be delivered in stages with the initial offering focussing on Covid Supervisors and Club Officers.

More detailed information for Players and Parents/Guardians of underage Players, and Team Personnel such as Managers, Coaches and Medical Personnel will be issued during the week starting 16 June.

A number of key points are worth noting.

· Clubs will not be expected to record the temperatures of players when they arrive for training/games.

· Adult players and parents/guardians of underage players will be required to complete an online Health Questionnaire once prior to their return to GAA Activities.

· Adult players and parents/guardians of underage players will then be required to declare, before each training session/game, that their health status has not changed.

· An online system for the health questionnaire will be provided centrally by the GAA. This is the only system that should be used.

As a vital part of the return of Gaelic Games, ALL adult players, ALL parents of underage players & ALL managers, coaches & Covid-19 Team Supervisors MUST complete this online eLearning module before returning to any training. https://courses.gaa.ie/Covid19ClubEd/#/ It should only take 10-15 minutes. Once you finish the module, you will receive a certificate. This is important, fill your name into the relevant space and print it off or take a screen shot and give to your manager at your first training session The online Health Questionnaire can be completed via (http://returntoplay.gaa.ie) and can be seen by the club and the relevant Covid-19 Supervisor. Also, plans will be communicated next week on specific Covid-19 education for referees and games development staff, e.g. protocols for Cúl Camps and sample coaching activities.

CORK COUNTY BOARD ANNOUNCES CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH ARRANGEMENTS (17TH JULY 2020)

Cork County Board has announced that a new online ticketing system is being rolled out to safeguard all involved in upcoming county championship games. “This system will ensure minimal contact, safe regulation of numbers at venues and ease of contact tracing in the event of a Covid-19 case”, said county chairperson, Tracey Kennedy, today.

“Full details of the Ticketmaster/Universe system recommended by the GAA will be outlined to clubs early next week, and look forward to seeing it in operation next weekend,” she continued. “While operating our games with a limit of 200 in attendance is a huge challenge, we have worked hard to develop an allocation system that is as fair as possible. However, it is absolutely vital for the safe operation of our games that no-one turns up without the appropriate ticket. Everyone from players to host club members to spectators must have a ticket from the online system.”

“Arrangements for the allocation of these tickets have been sent to clubs today, along with details of priority arrangements for club season ticket and premium ticket holders, who have already paid for their tickets and will have access to the ticketing system twenty-four hours ahead of everyone else.”

“Unfortunately, the 200 limit means that we will have a maximum of 80 tickets available for supporters when teams and officials, host venue staff, media and other essential personnel are covered. These will be offered to season/premium ticket holders initially, with the remainder divided evenly between the participating clubs, and anything left after that will go on general sale.”

“A number of our games will be broadcast live on TG4 and RTE, and we will be confirming the streaming of some games in due course. I know our local media will also do a fantastic job in bringing us details of as many games as possible,” said Kennedy. “This situation is far from ideal, but in this new Covid-19 world, we are getting accustomed to making adjustments, and I am sure people will understand the restrictions under which we have to operate.”

“Once more, I would appeal to supporters not to attend games unless they have purchased a ticket via the online system, which will go live early next week, and to follow all GAA and public health guidance for attending games.”

Arrangements for County Championship Games – Key Points

6. Remaining tickets for each game will be offered to the participating clubs in equal amounts for optional online purchase.

7. Subsequent to this, in the event that any of the 80 spectator tickets remain, they will be put on general sale online.

8. It is expected that ahead of next weekend’s games, the priority window for season/premium ticket holders will be activated over the weekend, any club spectator allocation will be made available on Monday or Tuesday, and any remaining tickets will go on general sale later in the week.

3. As previously communicated, dressing rooms and all other indoor facilities apart from toilets remain closed.

UPDATED ADVICE ON FACILITIES & GUIDANCE ON DEALING WITH POSITIVE CASES (14TH JULY 2020)

Please find below, and in the attached document, important updates and guidance that is being forwarded to you at the request of the Ard Stiúrthóir.

Arising from a meeting of the GAA’s Covid Advisory Group last night, it was agreed on a risk stratification basis that the following GAA facilities should remain closed after July 20th and until further notice:

- All Dressing Rooms

- All Club and County Gyms

It was agreed that Handball alleys could be opened from July 20th but can only be used subject to the guidance and control measures outlined in the GAA Handball Return to Play Document.

Club Bars that do not serve food, are permitted to open from July 20th provided they follow the Government Regulations for the relevant sector, and all required third party insurances and assurances are in place.

Updated guidance for Clubs on “Dealing with positive or suspected cases” was also agreed. This guidance replaces the previous advice issued to clubs and counties on June 2

FUTURE PITCH BOOKINGS

As we reopen our pitches for teams both training & playing matches, we have updated the strict protocols for late July & early August to make sure the correct procedures are being taken. We are doing our best to ensure that every team gets a fair opportunity to a Safe Return to Play Gaelic Games and gets the required time on the field towards training & playing matches. The relevant Chairpersons & Secretaries of the clubs have been notified of this and will speak to mentors in the coming days regarding such. If you are a mentor and you have not been notified of the protocols, please contact the Chairperson of your club. Please take note that the only way to book a pitch will be via email (pro.killeagh.cork@gaa.ie) and no other way will be accepted. We will be taking bookings up to August 16th until further notice. We would ask all teams that we would require some flexibility towards matches & training sessions in the coming weeks as matches will be played thick and fast across all four codes. These pitch bookings will also concur with the relevant contact tracing (HSE Guidelines) which may be required further down the line.

We return to Fermoy Golf Club for the ‘Keep It in the Family’ day out on Saturday August 29th.

The President’s Prize (of which Colman Motherway put up a beautiful piece of Glass last year) will be held on September 12th on Kinsale. More details to follow for this.
