Club Notes – 1 April 2020

Closure of Facilities

It was with heavy hearts that we closed up the track at short notice last week following a GAA directive under further Covid 19 restrictions. In the fifteen months since it opened our track has become a focal point for our whole community and footfall had increased significantly in recent weeks as schools and workplaces closed. But we had to follow procedure and if it helps stop the spread of the virus then it will be worthwhile. We wish all our users well and hope you find other suitable outlets to help keep you healthy and active until we get back in operation again.

We Missed Scotstown

On Sunday we should have played Scotstown in the first game of the senior league but instead we were all sitting around home wondering how long this is going to last. If the match had gone ahead no doubt it would have been a full blooded contest as always but we’d rather be playing against our sporting rivals than looking at other across the fence. Hopefully we get back to that soon because we miss Scotstown and Ballybay and Blayney and Latton and all the other teams we have built up rivalries with over the years. Here’s hoping we all keep well and get back to doing what we do best as soon as possible.

Sympathy

Sympathy is extended to the Gorman family on the death of Matt Gorman, Carrickatee. Death in a family is difficult at any time but these strange times with no opportunity to sympathise in person make it all the more poignant. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
