Wexford GAA Say Some Clubs Let The GAA Down With 'Social Activities'

Wexford GAA have condemned the actions of some clubs, who they believe have let the GAA down with their 'social activities'.

According to the Irish Times, last week four clubs in the county were reportedly forced to immediately suspend all activities.

A number of Covid-19 clusters around the country have been linked to social activities relating to GAA clubs in recent months.

The County Management Committee in Wexford have now come out to condemn the 'disappointing' actions of some clubs, claiming that they have the GAA as a whole down.

It is extremely disappointing that cases have been linked to a small number of clubs’ social activities following recent county finals.

The clubs in question have let the Association down and created a mistrust with the public in general.

The public houses that supported the social activities have many questions to answer with their compliance with Covid-19 public health guidelines.

Clubs, their members, players and supporters have a responsibility to ensure that any post-match gathering are arranged safely and in strict accordance with public health rules.

Personal responsibility is essential if collective compliance with public health requirements is to be achieved.

Wexford GAA has been assisting and liaising with the HSE in relation to the increase in cases within any clubs and those clubs deemed by the HSE to be at risk of having a cluster have ceased all activities until public health guidance allows a resumption.

The inter-county GAA season resumed over the weekend, with a huge number of codes taking place across the various codes.

Many have called for the season to be scrapped, although it does look likely to proceed as things currently stand.
