Good Evening All,
 
Based on Phase 4 now set for the 31st of August, we are no longer in a position to host our Junior, Senior & Masters Champs in Santry for this season unfortunately.
 
We would encourage County's to host smaller competition in their local area for both Juvenile & Senior athletes as these would be possible under current government guidelines.
 
Our full support rows in behind Nationals in hopefully hosting their few outdoor T&F competitions for this year!
 
Leinster / Dublin Juvenile Entries won't open till we know the story with National Juveniles. Enquires to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Good Evening All,
Leinster Committee with Reps from Dublin County Board met tonight,
It was decided to cancel the Juvenile Events (U17-U19) that were scheduled for the 1st of August.
It was also decided to postpone the Junior, Senior & Masters Event from the 8th & 9th August to the 14th, 15th & 16th August on the provision that Phase 4 goes ahead on the 10th of August. If Phase 4 is delayed, then this competition will be cancelled.
The reason behind this is 200 limits on outdoor gatherings cannot be guaranteed by ourselves given that Staff, Officials, Coaches, Parents, Spectators, Athletes Warming up, Competing, & Cooling Down are part of our cumulative numbers. It’s unfortunate but we have to obey government guidelines as they are currently set out.
 
We will not be opening entries until Phase 4 confirmation.
(ie. 6th / 7th of August)

Dear Provincial/County Secretaries,

 

Thursday, March 12th, 2020 at 12.30pm

 

Statement from Athletics Ireland regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19).

 

Athletics Ireland continues to closely monitor the coronavirus outbreak and the advice from the National Public Health Emergency Team and the HSE. The health and safety of the Athletics community is our priority and we are determined to be calm, calculated and proactive regarding precautions to limit the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

 

As announced by An Taoiseach this morning the following measures will come into effect from tomorrow morning until the 29th March, 2020.

 

  • schools, colleges and childcare facilities will close from tomorrow (Friday)
  • Indoor mass gatherings of 100 people or more and outdoor mass gatherings of more than 500 people should be cancelled

 

Where it is possible to work remotely people should do so. Public transport will continue and shops will continue to remain open. Mr Varadkar said we need the public and businesses to take a sensible approach.

 

Athletics Ireland is guided by this expert HSE advice and we will physically close our office from tomorrow morning but all staff will be operating our business from their homes. We are prepared to operate telephones and emails remotely to minimise disruption to our business.

 

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 this decision is taken in the best interests, not just of the athletics community, but of the Country.

 

Club training is down to the discretion of the individual club, but the recommendation from Athletics Ireland is that club training sessions be cancelled at this time.

 

The situation is changing rapidly and we will continue to monitor developments and update our website and communication on a daily basis.

Firstly, we hope that everyone is keeping well in these strange and challenging times.
 

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the Athletics Leinster committee have taken the difficult decision to postpone all of its scheduled May and June Outdoor Track & Field competitions until further notice.

Currently we don't know when we will be back, but the season will be reduced due to limited days & resources.

 

Orginal Dates, New dates to be confirmed in the coming weeks.
