County board pleads with supporters to follow guidelines following Cork county final celebrations

Scenes in Blackrock as Blackrock GAA celebrate county final win on Sunday 4th October 2020

THE Cork GAA board has appealed to clubs and supporters not to engage in celebrations that are outside of current public health guidelines.

In a statement this morning, Cork GAA said: "Our priority throughout the pandemic has been keeping our GAA community safe. Anything that threatens that safety, and the very continuation of the game during COVID-19, needs to be avoided at all costs. 

"To that end, we would plead with all clubs and supporters not to engage in celebrations that breach current guidelines. There will be county finals again next year – and we want to make sure COVID-19 does not rob some of the chance to enjoy them."

Yesterday, Blackrock won the Cork Senior Hurling Championship after a thrilling victory over Glen Rovers.

The Echo tried to make contact with Blackrock Hurling Club for comment. Videos are circulating on social media of celebrations in the Blackrock area.
