Club Notes – 11 June 2020

Walkway Restricted Opening

As part of Phase 2 of the national re-opening plan the Walkway at O’Neill Park is now open for four hours daily from 3pm to 7pm.The first hour from 3pm to 4pm is reserved for seniors/vulnerable persons and protocols have been put in place in line with HSE and GAA guidelines. These include walking only in a clockwise direction and patrons are asked to start their walk by walking down in front of the stand and exit the walk via the back of the dressing rooms to avoid meetingincoming walkers. Meanwhile all other facilities including pitches remain closed for all activities. It is expected these restrictions will last at least until we move into Phase 3 at the end of the month.
