A chairde,

I wish to draw your attention again to our previously issued guidance document of March 20th.

We advised you that, until March 29th, games and training were suspended, club gyms were to close, and Player Injury Fund cover was suspended.  

We subsequently instructed that club bars should also close for the period.


Club Operations

Please be advised that, in line with recent government announcements, these measures and closures are now extended to Sunday April 19 inclusive, at which stage arrangements will be reviewed. 

In addition, we are now instructing GAA Clubs to close their facilities completely.

This is to include the use of all pitches and property for recreational purposes, including walking, casual games or gatherings.

Where it is not possible to restrict access please erect signage to the effect that all GAA facilities are closed and all activity suspended.

In order to facilitate an orderly resumption of activities when circumstances permit, Clubs are encouraged to proceed as normal with their membership registration process where practical. Clubs of course should be mindful of the possible changed financial circumstances of members.

Similarly, club lottos may proceed if they are run on an online basis and do not involve wholesale engagement with the public.

Clubs are also advised to refrain from undertaking new capital projects while support funding for this type of work is suspended.


Community Support

As a national / international organisation, we have a part to play in emphasising the need to practice social distancing, as outlined by the authorities.

It is imperative that we exercise extreme caution keeping two metres between people when taking physical exercise while encouraging people to consider using off-peak times when they are less likely to meet others.

Attached is the latest messaging from the HSE covering guidelines around volunteering which we advise our clubs to consider as they involve themselves in community-based volunteer efforts.

Individual volunteers are asked to register with Volunteer Ireland (26 Counties) and Volunteer Now (Six Counties).

We would like to thank everyone who has helped the GAA adhere to government guidelines up to this point.

We would also like to assure you that we, and the wider GAA team across our counties and provinces, are working hard to ensure that we are in the best possible position to return to our games when that time comes.

In the meantime, please stay safe, look out for one another and continue to adhere to the instructions of the Government and the Health Authorities at this most challenging time.


Go raibh maith agaibh,

A Chairde,
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic Galway GAA have decided to continue to extend its suspension of all Club activity, both Adult and Juvenile for the foreseeable future.
This includes all Hurling Championship games scheduled for the month of April as well as all other Training Session and League games.
Updates on the resumption of activity and the possible restructuring of some competitions will be notified in due course and will be done in consultation with the Clubs.
Both the Management and County Committee Meetings scheduled for later this month are also postponed.
Again I wish to stress the crucial importance of all players, team personnel and officials adhering strictly to HSE guidelines in relation to social distancing and other aspect of the current Covid-19 pandemic.
Thanks to everybody for their combined efforts to date and 
Stay Safe,     Stay Strong,      Stay Connected,    Stay Positive
Mise le meas
