***UPDATE Covid-19 situation***
Hello to members, supporters and parents.
In light of the escalating Covid-19 situation here in Ireland and recent announcements from the HSE and Government the Executive committee have made a decision to pause all Kilcoole AC official gatherings and coaching sessions until further notice. This applies to both the Juvenile and Adult sections of the club.
We currently have 400+ members and therefore any official coaching sessions, races or gatherings could have numbers that are not in line with the advice from the government or HSE guidelines.
However we would like to highlight that keeping up your health and fitness activities is a very important approach in fighting this disease and even within Italy’s current situation , going outside for runs is still encouraged and allowed.
Currently there is no guidance on very small gatherings of 3,4,5 people. The official wording from the Government is ‘ People should minimize social interaction where possible ‘. We encourage all our members to follow the advice of HSE and government guidelines where possible.
We are a community based club so please continue to use the communication channels to stay connected, inspire and motivate each other through these challenging times. The community platform of this club is our best weapon so lets use it together.
