THE GAA has warned that teams who may be taking part in collective training that they are not insured.
Last Monday, the first phase of the easing of the Covid-19 restrictions came into being, allowing groups of four from different households to meet.
Sports such as tennis, golf and athletics have been allowed to resume, but with strict guidelines still in place.
All GAA facilities have been closed until July 20 and the players’ injury benefits scheme has been suspended.
There have been murmurs of teams undertaking some forms of collective work, but GAA spokesperson Alan Milton has issued a warning.
“People might see one or two people on a pitch and say they are back training.
“But even aside from insurance, the relaxation didn’t allow for any form of training anyway.
“And there’s the question of using footballs or using sliotars which can increase infection risk.”Tags:
