Camogie Association suspend all club games with immediate effect

The Camogie Association's Ard Comhairle has followed the GAA and the LGFA in suspending all club activity with immediate effect.

A statement from the association says the decision has been taken in the interest of public safety, and applies to all ages and all grades across the island, with all club social centres and bars also to close.

Training is still permitted as per government guidelines.

As is the case with Gaelic Football, Hurling and Ladies Football, the senior inter-county Camogie Championship remains scheduled to proceed.

The Championship will be held between October 17th and December 12th this year.

The statement from the Camogie Association reads:

"The Camogie Association’s Ard Chomhairle has now endorsed a decision to suspend all Camogie Club games ​at all levels with immediate effect ​and until further notice.

"The decision has been taken in the interest of public safety.

"Club Social Centres/Bars are also to close.

​"Training will continue to be permitted as per the guidelines outlined for the relevant levels in the Government’s National Framework for Living with COVID-19 and relevant guidelines in the Six Counties.

"The Camogie Association will continue to monitor the situation in the ​coming days and weeks, regarding changes in government guidelines, before liaising with our Units accordingly.

"The Camogie Association would also like to acknowledge all of those Units who have worked diligently in complying with the public health advice around the staging of our games and training sessions since."
