In a press conference yesterday, An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar outlined tighter restrictions to tackle the Covid-19 emergency.
In his statement, Mr Varadkar said that “all sporting events are cancelled including those behind closed doors”. He also stated that from midnight tonight “theatres, clubs, gyms, hairdressers, libraries and other similar outlets are to shut”, and that we should only leave home if essential.
These restrictions will be in place until at least 19th April and will impact hugely on us all but as ever, the health and safety of the sailing community is of paramount importance.
Although the latest advice means that the Irish Sailing office at Park Road is closed to the public, we continue to work remotely, and we’re here to answer any questions you have.
Please call us on 01 280 0239.
