Latest update from Athletics Ireland

Dear Club Secretary,

Following the latest announcement from our Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar yesterday announcing All organised indoor and outdoor events of any size are not to take place.

The effect of this government decision means that no Athletics Ireland Provinces, County Boards, Clubs or affiliates can operate in any capacity. As such no insurance covers of Athletics Ireland for Provinces, County Boards, Clubs and individuals are operational during this period.

For clarification;

The AAI personal accident covers any registered member who is injured as a result of an accident at an official club event or during official club training. This policy does not cover individuals training at their own discretion.

The government directive has now shut down all club activity hence the withdrawal of our club personal accident cover.

During these unprecedented times we need to act responsibly and we appreciate your cooperation in temporarily closing all club activity.

Regards

Hamish Adams
Chief Executive Officer
Athletics Ireland

On Sunday Ciaran added to his medal haul with a silver medal in the U18 High Jump and gold in the U18 Triple Jump.
