Good Afternoon All,
Normally by this time of year we would have concluded our Leinster T&F season unfortunately this year this is not the case.
The Leinster Executive meet during the week to see how we should proceed.
It was decieded to have compeition for U17s to Masters over 3 days in August.
Saturday the 1st of August - U17s to U19s Championship - U17-U19 Guests are welcome.
Saturday / Sunday the 8th / 9th of August - Junior, Senior & Masters Championship - Junior, Senior & Master Guests are welcome.
We will have more details to share over the coming weeks regards this years Outdoors.
Competitions are subject to government restrictions being eased and will have additional measures in place to ensure that the competitions are safe for all athletes, officials and spectators.
Unfortunately due to Goverment Restrictions we've had to cancel the Open Senior Competition that was due to go with the Juvenile on the 1st of August. We will be accepting guests for Juveniles U17-U19's Championships.
One point note is we will need officals assigned before the compeition day as there will be additional precautions we'll have to take due to Covid.
We be running an online training course hopefully before our compeition dates for anyone who is interested in helping out.

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.
