Ballinascarthy and Argideeen Rangers in Cork have suspended all activities at adult and juvenile levels due to safety concerns over Covid-19.

Argideeen Rangers explained that “This is a precautionary measure, and is because a number of club members have told us that they may have been in contact with a person subsequently confirmed to have Covid-19.”

The club explained that all activity would be suspended until Saturday July 11 when the matter would be reviewed.

Ballinascarthy in a statement said: “To all Ballinascarthy GAA and Camogie Club members, please note that collective team training at all grades is temporarily suspended to comply with HSE public health advice and guidance from Croke Park on contact tracing protocols.

“This decision is taken to ensure the continued safety of all members of the Ballinascarthy community and will be reviewed again early next week.”

It is also believed that a club in Offaly has stood down for seven days.
