Club Notes – 26 March 2020

GAA activity has ceased at all levels in response to the  spread of Covid 19 bit clubs like ours all over the country are standing up to it. We haven’t faced anything like this before and many people are feeling somewhat overwhelmed by various aspects of it, including staying indoors, managing the children who are off school, and in some cases being out of work as well. We could all lie down under it, but that is not what we do. With that in mind, our development work will continue when it is feasible and safe to do so, and when this passes, as it will in time, we hope to have our new pitch ready for the surge of activity that will follow. Those who feel they can continue to contribute to Clontibret Our Future are asked to contact their promoter to do so, while others may understandably wish to take a break. The pitches and Social Club remain closed, and while the walking track is open, patrons are reminded to act responsibly and follow the guidelines issued by HSE. This includes using hand sanitisers at entrance and exit as well as walking at least two metres apart in a clockwise-only direction to avoid meeting others. At home, we should also be following the strict guidelines issued at national level so as not to put ourselves, family or neighbours at risk. If anyone needs any practical assistance, there are plenty of young, strong club members willing to help out. You know who to call… we’re all in this together… there’s no them… just us. 


Sympathy is extended to our Assistant Treasurer, Helen Molloy and family on the death of her mother, Nuala Neary in her native Longford. Also to Kathleen McQuaid on the death of her brother, Felix Duffy, Carga. Felix was a frequent visitor to O’Neill Park and a supporter of Clontibret teams over many decades.
