THE widely held view that collective training for inter-county senior GAA teams would resume on 15 January would not take place was confirmed today when the GAA issued a statement declaring that such training would not now resume in January.

The statement says, “Given the current exceptional rise in infection rates of Covid 19 and the increased risk of community transmission, the GAA has taken the decision that there will be no collective training permitted for inter-county teams for at least the remainder of the month of January.

In addition, Club and County gyms must stay closed until further notice.

As previously advised, and under the current Government Regulations in both jurisdictions, neither training nor games are permitted at club level currently.”

Reports that some county teams were already back in training were firmly dealt with in today’s statement. “Breaches of any of the above provisions will be dealt with under Rule 7.2 (e) “Misconduct considered to have discredited the Association”.”

The statement concludes by stating, “Current Level 5 restrictions in the South will run until 31 January at which point the GAA will review the current situation and further advice in this context will be provided.”
