We’re in lockdown to protect those who are deemed vulnerable. I think this is about those who are vulnerable due to issues with their mental health. Nothing more, nothing less. #OpenTheGymspic.twitter.com/Iktdman86a
Well done lads. Excellent performance. Played a lot of good football. Had them pinned into their half for long periods. Created clear-cut opportunities. When you consider the players who didn’t play there’s now cause for optimism. A WC is only 2 years away. #COYBIGhttps://t.co/NuxXn0No8B
Celebrations in Blackrock, Cork yesterday following Blackrock GAA Club’s victory over Glen Rovers in the Cork Hurling Final
Marty Morrissey told RTÉ’s News At One that all GAA club games at all levels have been suspended with immediate effect and until further notice.
Reading from a statement, Mr Morrissey said:
“The decision has been taken in the interest of public safety. A number of incidents have been brought to our attention in recent days, in particular, post-match celebrations and a lack of social distancing at certain events have proved disappointing and problematic.”
“This directive applies to all ages, all grades across the island. Club, social centres, bars are also to close. Training will continue to be permitted as per the guidelines, outlined for the relevant levels and the Government’s National Framework for Living With Covid-19…”
Dublin Lord Mayor Hazel Chu shot the gun on the 2020 VHI Women’s Virtual Mini-Marathon assisted by ‘Cara’, a running statue representing all the participants (even the very few who might prefer walking).
Over the next 10 days, until October 10, more than 17,000 women will do 10KM ‘their own way’ to raise funds for charities across Ireland.
