“Cratloe GAA would like to thank the Clare County Board and the HSE for their assistance and advice over the past week” read a club statement. We would very much like to express our gratitude to the many clubs of Clare for the messages of understanding,  support, and concern for our players. As reported, a number of our adult players have tested positive for Covid-19 and thankfully all are recovering well.
