We hope our clubs and supporters will continue to co-operate with us during these very challenging times for everyone. Spectators should be aware that all the risks posed from Covid-19 cannot be eliminated; including attending GAA games but that essential control measures have been put in place to reduce risks for members.

We must endeavour to take a practical, responsible and common-sense approach to managing risk whilst observing regulations.

Separately, clubs must apply to Co. CCC for permission to video a game for analysis or streaming purposes.

Where Tipperary Co. Board is already streaming a live game, clubs or individuals cannot stream the same game through their own resources.

We send best wishes to the following clubs hosting Cúl Camps in their facilities next week - Arravale Rovers, Thurles Gaels, Moyne-Templetuohy, Golden-Kilfeacle, Cappawhite, Éire Óg Annacarty-Donohill and St. Mary's.
