THE camogie season remains on hold until at least May 5.

The Camogie Association have officially extended the current suspension of all games and training until the first Tuesday in May, as they await further developments on the Coronavirus pandemic.

They are still aiming to complete all of the 2020 competitions, including the league, which was held up with a number of rounds remaining, as well as the provincial and All-Ireland series at various age groups.

In a statement, the Association acknowledged "this step will result in further inconvenience and disruption to members as well as the game at all levels. 

"However we appreciate the continued co-operation and support of everyone involved at this time. The health and safety of our members is, as always, of paramount importance and these steps will assist us all in taking the necessary precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19 and to return to full activity as early as possible.

"Our thoughts are with members whose families are affected by the COVID-19 virus."

There is also a pay deferral in place for camogie staff.

"The Association’s Ard Chomhairle has also approved a 10% pay deferral in coming months for the Camogie Association staff team as part of cost-saving measures.

"The staff team continue to provide support, education and upskilling opportunities to our members through utilising online technology. The Camogie Association is delighted with engagement levels amongst members with supports provided across all aspects of the Association's activity, from coaching and safeguarding to contingency planning. We encourage units and members to use this time to avail of the training and education opportunities being provided.

"As this is a rapidly developing situation, we will continue to monitor the information received from the relevant authorities on a day-to-day basis. Further updates will be issued in due course."
