CRATLOE HAVE THANKED the Clare County Board and their fellow clubs for their support as their game with Clondegad this weekend has been postponed following six confirmed cases of Covid-19 among the club. 

As reported by the Clare Echo, a virtual meeting of the Clare County Board yesterday evening decided to proceed with all games this weekend bar the meeting of Cratloe and Clondegad, with Chair Joe Cooney telling delegates there have been six confirmed cases at the club. 

Following the discovery of a case last weekend, Cratloe’s hurling clash with Eire Og Ennis was postponed. 

“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. There has been no club activity since notification of the first case and will remain that way for the period of isolation.”

All other football games in Clare are set to go ahead as scheduled this weekend. 

This article was first published yesterday at 22.24 and has been updated to include Cratloe’s statement.
