Cork County Board issue statement
The Cork County board have issued a statement pleading with clubs not to engage in celebrations that breach current Covid-19 regulations.
A parade following Blackrock's Premier Senior Hurling Championship final win over Glen Rovers yesterday drew intense criticism after footage was shared online.
The statement from the Cork County board says that their priority throughout the pandemic has been keeping the GAA community safe, and anything that threatens that safety needs to be avoided at all costs.
The statement in full reads:
"Our priority throughout the pandemic has been keeping our GAA community safe.
"Anything that threatens that safety, and the very continuation of the game during COVID-19, needs to be avoided at all costs.
"To that end, we would plead with all clubs and supporters not to engage in celebrations that breach current guidelines.
"There will be county finals again next year – and we want to make sure COVID-19 does not rob some of the chance to enjoy them
