COVID Update

The GAA has issued advice to clubs and counties for activities that are permissible and not permissible in 2021 until further notice.

  • Under Level 5 of the plan for living with Covid-19 and the current restrictions in the North, individual training only is permitted for GAA clubs.
  • Neither adult or underage teams may train collectively, club games are not permitted, and GAA club grounds must remain closed.
  • At inter-county level, it remains the case that collective training for senior inter-county panels may only recommence from January 15th. However, given the current growth rates in virus transmission, this date is under review.
  • For the moment senior inter-county players may train on an individual basis only in club or county owned gyms and no training is currently permitted for any other panels such as U-20 or Minor.

Rebels’ Bounty Draw

The Cork County Board Draw has been re-name Rebels’ Bounty  2021. This is a fund-raiser not just for the Cork County Board but also for GAA clubs within the county. The funding model has changed this year. Whilst we have been given a quota of 100 tickets that we must sell or buy, once we sell beyond this number we keep 100% of the proceeds. This represents a good fund raising opportunity especially given the attractive monthly prizes on offer.

If you have any questions regarding your existing draw subscription or for new subscribers please contact the Midleton GAA coordinator Pat O’Brien on 086 8118815.

Hurling Helmet Safety

In advance of the 2021 GAA season, players are reminded about the need to check that their equipment is in good condition and meets the required safety standards.

The GAA would like to remind all players at all levels in all Hurling Games and Hurling Practice Sessions it is mandatory for, and the responsibility of, each individual player to wear a helmet with a facial guard that meets the standards set out in IS:355 or other replacement standard as determined by the National Safety Authority of Ireland (NSAI).

All players are advised that in the event of a head injury occurring, if the helmet being worn does not meet the standard or is modified or altered from the original manufactured state, they are not covered under the terms of the GAA Injury Benefit Fund.

The following helmet manufacturers currently provide products which meet the standards set out in IS:355 or other replacement standard as determined by the National Safety Authority of Ireland (NSAI): Atak Sports, Azzuri, Cooper.ie, Marc Sports, Mycro, O’Neills

Players and parents should note that not all products provided by some of these manufacturers meet the standards of IS:355.

Once the helmet or faceguard is modified in anyway, the player is playing at an increased risk of injury and not covered under the terms of the GAA Injury Benefit Fund.

Condolences

Midleton GAA Club would like to offer their sincerest sympathies to the O’Brien family on the recent passing of Mary Creedon (née O’Brien).
