Midleton GAA Safe Return to Play Plan


Email Update from Cork County Board 21st October 2020

A Chara,

At last night's County Executive meeting, it was decided to postpone the unplayed 2020 Senior and Intermediate County Finals until the weekend of March 5th-7th, 2021, at the earliest.

It is planned to give adequate notice of games to clubs, with an appropriate window of preparation, in advance of finals.

2020 County Championships at Junior A, B and C level will resume on February 5th-7th at the earliest, with a brief period to be allowed for the completion of Divisional championships in early February where required.

There will be no Club games at adult or juvenile level permitted at County Board or Divisional level before Friday, February 5th.

Club U21 competitions for 2020 will not be completed.

Adult club training is prohibited from midnight tonight and non-contact training for school children outdoors in pods of 15 is permitted for the obvious associated health benefits and should not be competition focussed.

Again, we thank all members and your families for your patience during this uncertain time. Stay safe.


Members are urged to continue to comply with the current government restrictions in relation to Gaelic Games below, taken from the‘Resilience and Recovery 2020 – 2021: Plan for living with COVID-19’ framework.

Level 5 will be in place from midnight tonight, Wednesday, October 21st for 6 weeks, with a review after 4 weeks.

Sports and exercise

Gyms and leisure centres are closed.

No training or matches should take place except:
Non-contact training for school children, outdoors in pods of 15
Behind closed doors, inter-county Gaelic Games

Le mór mheas,

We all wish Kacper well for his upcoming operation in Dublin in November.
