Public Health Emergency Information - SARS-CoV-2 Virus and COVID-19 Disease
12th March 2020
In response to today's announcement from An Taoiseach, Athletics Ireland has made the following statement:-
"Athletics Ireland is therefore instructing all affiliates to suspend all athletic competitions and events with immediate effect. We understand that this decision will result in inconvenience and disappointment to many athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers and supporters. However, we are sure that all will understand that the decision is taken in the best interests, not just of the athletics community, but of the Country."
In line with the advice from Athletics Ireland, St Coca's AC has cancelled all club training until social distancing measures have been lifted by the Government. Coaches will continue to be available to all members to advise any runners and we would encourage all to stay fit and active and to train safe. On behalf of the club please heed the public health advice being issued, stay safe and look after each other over the coming weeks
