Cork GAA Statement 08/10/2020

Cork GAA Statement 

Cork County Executive wishes to remind members that all club games in Cork are currently suspended in line with GAA guidelines. This directive applies to all ages and grades.

We intend to complete our 2020 programme of games when circumstances allow and the CCC will reschedule outstanding fixtures as soon as possible, subject to prevailing government restrictions, GAA guidelines and inter-county championship fixtures.

The remaining thirteen of our sixteen county finals at adult level had been scheduled over the next month and we thank clubs that have qualified for the latter stages of same for your continued patience at this difficult time for members.

No decision has been made on the club U21 fixtures currently outstanding.

Clubs are also reminded that training is permitted under the Level 3 guidelines

  • All underage training must be on a non-contact basis in pods of up to 15.
  • Adult teams can continue to train as normal.
  • All clubs and players are reminded that Health Questionnaires and all other relevant control measures must continue to be followed for club training.

In line with the suspension of games, the launch of Rebels’ Bounty scheduled for Sunday next has been postponed.

Rebels’ Bounty will instead be launched in late 2020 / early 2021 and a meeting of Cork County Committee, which will be devoted solely to this item, will be held when circumstances allow.

This will allow us to comprehensively outline the benefits of the initiative for clubs and to seek formal approval. There will be an extensive communication drive with clubs in the interim.

It is also planned to hold a general County Committee meeting in the near future on a virtual basis.

Finally, we remind members to comply with all current restrictions and guidelines, and we thank you for you continued support.
