Following the announcement by An Taoiseach tonight the following guidance has been issued from Sport Ireland in relation to Kildare, Laois and Offaly.
The Restrictions are in place for 2 weeks from midnight tonight (Friday 7 August) until midnight on Friday 20 August. The situation will then be reviewed.
The key notes of importance include:
Travel and transport
You should not travel into any of these counties, other than for the reasons above, and you need to travel through these counties to get somewhere else. You should not stop in Kildare, Laois or Offaly unless for essential purposes.
No sporting events or matches should take place, with the following exemptions:
All indoor gatherings should be restricted to a maximum of 6 people from no more than 3 households in total, while maintaining physical distancing.
Outdoor gatherings should be limited to a maximum of 15 people, while maintaining physical distancing
Public and private transport
You should not use public transport unless it is absolutely necessary to do so, and where possible you should not share private vehicles with others from outside your household.
Please note that all Government guidelines supersede Volleyball Ireland's return to play protocols, which will be updated to reflect this development in due course.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
