Re-Starting Club Matches

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Am involved in a club and would appreciate if anyone is able to answer the below questions.

- Do all players have to get their temperature checked before each training/match?
- If yes, what is the cost of the testing kits and who is expected to pay for these - the club or the players/families?
- If a player fails a test before a match and passes it half hour later, is he/she allowed play? I know a situation of this happening at a workplace and it turned out the person in question had the virus.
- If a player contracts the virus and has been training/playing matches - does the whole team have to go into quarantine?
- If a player contracts the virus and has been training/playing matches - does the opposition team they have been playing against have to go into quarantine?

Is there any word on what format will be played? Presumably in Galway which is a dual county - the only practical way of organising club championships is straight knockout?

I think I am involved in my local club so would like to know so we can all start playing again.
You probably do most of your talking behind your keyboard but will be the first to give out if anything happens.

I know with the temperature checks in the rugby in Australia some players have failed initially and passed a short time later.

One of the players believes it may be due to having headphones in their ears listening to music before the test.

Don't know if any evidence yet to prove this but may be something for players to avoid just in case

Mayo release plan to run off club championship in 6 weeks why couldn't galway? Understandable we have a few dual clubs but majority shouldn't pose too many difficulties, I'm sure lads will only be mad to play games. I'd be all for keeping the current format for the football championships

its utterly shameful of those clubs who have started back training. The chairperson and secretary of these clubs should be suspended from the association for 52 weeks. So much for us all being in this together

Which is not against any rule - assuming the training is not done on a GAA club ground.

i know for a fact you are wrong about one of those clubs, you need to get better sources of information before you post it here

You may be correct that its not against a rule, buts its definitely against the spirit. What happens if a player goes down with a cruciate injury ? the gaa injury fund will not pay out for it. Will the teams manager fork out the 5k needed for the operation ?

What happens if u get knocked down by a car while out walking. Were we to live our lives with IFs we wouldn't go outside the house. The simple fact is some clubs are training in small groups. As I said before we need to learn to live with this virus and in doing so do everything we can to limit its power. On saying that we can't keep our lives, mental health etc on hold forever. If some clubs do decide to train in small groups, I say fair play, as long as they have the cop to do so in a manner which doesn't cause the spread of this virus.

Sure a few lads doing a bit of running 2m apart in a big open space Is hardly something to start whinging about?

Is it true there is video footage of certain clubs & an underage & senior inter county set up training in pods in public parks going back weeks ago, when it was against Govt guidelines & GAA advice. Could be a massive PR disaster for the GAA if it's put up online. Could all those involved be thrown out of the respective competitions.
