Clubs playing their part in this period of real uncertainty

WITH the outbreak of the coronavirus causing a period of real  uncertainty in all of our lives – as well as the cancellation of all  GAA activities – clubs across Ulster have shown once again why they  remain very much at the heart of the community.

Gaelic Life have selected a few messages from clubs across the  province demonstrating that very fact with many other clubs doing
likewise across Ireland. These are just some of the very many examples.

If anyone in our local community, whether a club member or not needs  any assistance in accessing their groceries and/or prescriptions, or
any other help in the coming weeks then please contact us via our  Facebook page or contact any committee member. We will be more than
happy to help. Tír Na NÓg, Randalstown Antrim

In light of the COVID-19 situation, if anyone in the local community,  club member or not, needs assistance in anyway, with groceries,
prescriptions collected, transferred to the doctors or requires any  help at all until this passes, please just get in touch with our
Facebook page or contact any of our committee members. There’s a large  amount of volunteers who will be more than happy to help.
Madden Raparees Armagh

We wish to encourage any member of our parish who has any issues  getting groceries, prescriptions or needs assistance in any way over
the coming weeks to get in touch with the club. We are here to help. St Colm’s, Drum Derry

In the coming weeks a calm and rational approach will be needed to  cope with the cornavirus. If there is anyone but particularly elderly
club members of the community who would benefit from food, medical,  fuel drops then these people can contact St Eunan’s health and well-
being officer. We will arrange to carry out deliveries. Each contact  would be limited as it is designed to simply be a drop off service. We
do not intend to interfere in family dynamics just offering the  possibility of a service to help those in need if required and only if
requested. St Eunan’s Donegal

During the COVID19 crisis, We at Bryansford GAC would like to offer  our support to anyone who is elderly, frail and needs groceries,
messages medications, etc collected or assistance in any way to make  this period as comfortable and stress free as possible. Just contact a
committee member or the club’s Facebook page and we’ll sort it as best we can. Check on your neighbours and friends during this worrying
time. We can all get through this together. Bryansford Down

During the unpredictable days and weeks ahead, we understand that  there may be those within the local community who may not be in a
position to carry out their daily tasks such as getting groceries,  collecting prescriptions etc. As a club we are here to help. If you
know of anyone who could benefit from help with any of the above,  please send us a message to our Facebook page and our members will
happily help out. We do not want anyone feeling isolated. Enniskillen Gaels Fermanagh

We are aware of the fear and disruption already caused by Covid-19,  particularly to the elderly and vulnerable within the community.
Should you, or a person you know, require food, prescriptions or fuel  please get in contact. #workingasacommunity #oneteam
Inniskeen Grattans Monaghan

Eoghan Ruadh Hurling Club are aware of the potential hardship of the  recent situation, regarding Covid19, that may bring to elderly or
vulnerable people in our community. We are in the process of setting  up a workgroup whereby people can call us if they require assistance
acquiring food, fuel or other necessities such as medical  prescriptions, etc. Please contact us and we will do our best to check
on your family or loved ones. Eoghan Ruadh Tyrone

Now that Masses have been suspended in our community let us all be  mindful of any elderly people in our community who could do with a
chat and some reassurance to alleviate any fears that they may have. Kingscourt Stars Cavan
