Covid19 Update – Dublin County Board

By on September 18, 2020

A Chara,

I wish to advise that as a result of the Government’s decision to move to Level 3 Covid-19 restrictions all Minor Club games scheduled for the duration of Level 3 restrictions have been postponed.

This includes all Minor Championship, Cup, and Challenge game fixtures. The CCC will reschedule outstanding fixtures as soon as possible, subject to Dublin Minor and Under 20 inter-county Championship fixtures.

All Adult games (Championship and Cup) remain ON (behind closed doors).

Clubs using pitches in DCC Public Parks should note that the City Council has closed their pitches for all activity until we return to Level 2 or lower.
The other three Councils have not made us aware of any pitch closures.

Clubs affected by the closure of their home venues in Public Parks must concede home advantage where their opponents have a venue available.

Juvenile Update

A Rúnaí, chara,

Please note that as a result of the Government’s decision to move to Level 3 restrictions all Juvenile fixtures with immediate effect have been postponed.

The juvenile programme will resume when permissible with games scheduled for this weekend being played first.

Following the GAA Covid update on Wednesday can I draw your attention to the latest advice from the Covid Advisory Committee.

Club Training
If a county moves to Level 3, underage training must be on a non-contact basis in pods of up to 15. Adult teams can continue to train as normal

If a county moves to level 4 all outdoor training, both adult and underage, must be on a non-contact basis

Attendances (playing of games)
If a county moves to a Level 3 classification, no spectators are permitted, but adult club and county matches can continue to take place behind closed doors. Underage games cannot take place (U-18 or below)

At Level 4 only intercountry games can take place.

Challenge Games
Club Challenge games in Level 3 Counties are not permitted – neither are clubs from Level 3 Counties (or Level 2 with additional restrictions) permitted to travel outside the County to play a challenge game.

Towers Óg

Separately, Round Tower GAA Club informs Towers Óg will continue as scheduled Saturday morning for children born 2014.
