We have received updated guidance from our sporting bodies
and the Government that clarifies that
Apologies for the changes and rather frequent updates, but
we are simply reacting to the guidance from our Sporting representative
associations and from Sporting Ireland and the Government. We are passing it on
as soon as we possibly can in what is a very fluid situation.
In the meantime, stay safe and if you need assistance,
please just call. We have volunteers just ready to help.

FURTHER CHANGES TO RESTRICTIONS FROM TENNIS IRELAND
Despite the guidance on Club activities provided last night and this morning, unfortunately I must report a significant change.
Tennis Ireland have amended their instructions and requested all Clubs to suspend ALL Tennis activities. This includes junior coaching.
At this time guidance on boating remains unchanged.
The situation is fluid and the Sporting Ireland expert group is meeting later today so we may see further changes.
The Management Committee will endeavour to keep you up to date.

LEVEL 5 COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT
Regrettably, we now face into further restriction during this new lockdown and we must adjust our Club activities accordingly. Over the last 48 hours we have been working with our two representative sports bodies to clarify how the regulations apply to us, and they in turn have been working with Sporting Ireland and the Dept of Sport. As a result of these discussions, the following will now apply.
Boating and Sailing
Discussion on certain issues continue so I would not be surprised if we see further points of clarification in the next few days and weeks, but for now these are the regulations that apply.
We have been specifically asked to remind our members of the reason for the restrictions and the need to observe the spirit of the guidance to protect ourselves and our community. Our reputations and our sports reputations are also at stake.
As earlier in the year, we will put in place a zoom coffee morning once a week so that friends may interact in a virtual world. If you would like to be involved, please let us know by email and we will try and link you in.
In the meantime, let us look out for each other and if in difficulty or feeling isolated, please let us know and we can arrange some assistance. Despite all we say about each other, deep down, we are a real friendly bunch!
