Intermediate Championship 2020

Round 1 of the Intermediate Championship will see Killeshandra take on Bailieboro Shamrocks. Dates and time to be confirmed.

U15 Training
U15 training recommences on Wednesday 1st July at 6pm in Killeshandra. A return for players can only happen if the following has taken place:
Parents have completed the eLearning module and filled in the Health Questionnaire. 
It is important that all players adhere to the instructions and guidance given by the Covid Supervisors and Coaches. Those undertaking the role of Covid Supervisors are doing so on a voluntary basis and do not want to be put in a position of turning a player away so it is vital that the return to play requirements have been completed by parents. 

Covid Update 

Safe Return to Play

The GAA will be issuing  a Covid-19 education programme to all clubs in the coming days for further guidance on a safe return to activity.Club training in small groups can return on pitches from 29th June before the resumption of fixtures on 31 July. Players will be asked to arrive togged out for training. The Covid-19 education programme will outline key return to play roles and protocols such as the Covid Supervisor and the Health Questionnaire ahead of the return to action.

For the Club to move forward to a safe Return to play we will be appointing a Covid Supervisor to each team and the walking track.
