Ulster GAA: All club training must cease from Friday

ULSTER GAA Chief Brian McEvoy says that all club training in the province must cease from tomorrow onwards.

The GAA at national level called an immediate halt to club fixtures last week, but training was still permitted.

However, Ulster GAA have released a statement this evening saying that training must stop as well as all nine counties within the province are subject to new restrictions.

The statement, which was signed by Brian McEvoy, read: “With effect from Friday 16th October all club activity, including training sessions that have been taking place since the Association’s directive on Monday 5th October 2020 should cease for all GAA units in Ulster.

“The only activity that is exempt from this cessation across both jurisdictions is elite level Inter County activity.

“For the purposes of clarity this includes Gaelic Football, Hurling, Camogie and Ladies Gaelic Football from U16 level up as recognised by both Governments.”
