As it looks now likely that we face into another lockdown this week, we ask all members to be cautious at all times going forward, keep your Social Distance, wear a face covering where possible, wash your hands regularly & reduce your social contacts.

Remember, if you have any of the following symptoms; Fever, A Cough, Shortness of Breath or Breathing Difficulties, please contact your GP for advice & do not attend Páirc Uí Chinnéide until cleared by Public Health.

Also, it is important to check in with elderly family members & neighbours to make sure that they are all ok, fit and healthy. If anyone has a problem or needs to talk, please contact a member of the Killeagh GAA Officers in the knowledge of confidentiality will be kept.

CLUB ONLY COVID UPDATE OCTOBER 16TH 2020

A Chara,

Below please note some important reminders and updates in relation to Covid ahead of this weekend:

For Consideration of Clubs:

1. Adult Club Games

The additional Level 3 Restrictions have removed the exemption for Adult club games. The Government have stated that this will be the position until at least November 10th.

In the interim, and while training is allowed at both adult and underage, it must be on a non-contact basis in pods of no more than 15 people in Counties that are in Level 3. The advice for Ulster Counties remains as per the communication from the Ulster Council yesterday.

2. Other Activities

Commercial use of indoor halls continues to be permitted where agreement was in place prior to March and relevant insurance are in place. Use by State bodies e.g. HSE/Schools is also permitted.

In light of updated advice, Drive-in events (such as Bingo etc) are no longer permitted to take place.

COACHING AND SAFEGUARDING COURSES

Ahead of the 2021 season, a 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 or younger categories 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. As all players, mentors & parents return to Páirc Uí Chinnéide, please take note of the following points that should be noted by all;

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. A directive from Croke Park states that "Club gyms are to be closed and access suspended". Therefore, our Gym will be closed until further notice.

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

5. All dressing room facilities are to remain closed until further notice as the Covid-19 advisory committee must meet to issue advice on this. We ask the ALL MEMBERS adhere to this directive of the closure.

6. Our walkway Páirc Uí Chinnéide is in use for all in the community. 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. Please keep off the newly seeded banks and grass margins as these just starting to grow.

7. 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.

8. 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.

9. 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.

10. 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.

11. There will be toilets open for emergency use.

12. 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.

If instructions need to be updated over the coming weeks, it will be changed here and notified on the Club Text & our Social Media. For more information on HSE Guidelines, please check out the posters below. For more local information, please keep in touch with our Social Media or contact any club member.
