GAA Handball Online Shop:Due to restrictions in place around working from home and travel please note that shop orders will not be able to be processed at present.
I would like to thank all our members who have worked so diligently in complying with the public health advice around the staging of our games and training sessions since activity resumed. In particular I would like to thank the venues that hosted games and in particular the Crinkle club who hosted the semi-finals and finals programme of the Myclubshop.ie Softball championships recently and did an excellent job in difficult circumstances.
While this news is disappointing especially when we were starting to enjoy our games once more it is necessary to stop the spread of the virus and I would appeal to all our members to comply with the level 3 restrictions and government advice to stop the spread of the virus to enable us to return to action in as short a timeframe as is possible.
It is vital that all our members continue to abide by the guidelines on social distancing, wearing of masks and sanitizing.
As this is an ever-changing situation further updates will be issued when necessary.
Stay safe and thank you as always for your cooperation.
