Resilience and Recovery 2020-2021: Plan for Living with COVID-19.


To All Members,


Please see below links to today’s government announcement on Resilience and Recovery 2020-2021: Plan for Living with COVID-19. 



The guidelines above still contain some areas that require clarification from an athletics perspective and we have asked the Sport Ireland Expert Group for their guidance. We will share updates with you as soon as we receive them and I note we also plan to share the Cross Country guidelines once we receive the Sport Ireland clarifications.




Kind regards

Athletics Ireland is delighted to announce that in accordance with specific government guidelines all clubs can return to limited activity from Monday 18th May.
Athletics is one of the first sports to receive Sport Ireland and Government endorsement to return to activity and we thank the expert contribution from our working groups in competition, recreation and clubs.
Athletics is a key strategic sport in improving the health of the nation and the recent study detailing the huge increases in people walking and running in the last two months illustrates the necessity to open our club outdoor facilities.
