The latest information for the IRFU medical department can be found below:

At present the HSE and Public Health Authorities have not advised cancellation of sporting fixtures due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

If this decision is made at any stage the IRFU will issue a statement. For now, fixtures should continue as normal.

 If your club is contacted on a local basis directly from HSE/ Public Health officials regarding fixtures then please adhere to this guidance and inform the IRFU and your provincial branch immediately.

 If you have any concerns regarding a potential Coronavirus case in your club please contact the HSE for advice on 1850 24 1850.

Anyone with symptoms of coronavirus who has been in close contact with a confirmed case in the last 14 days should:

  • isolate themselves from other people – this means going into a different, well-ventilated room alone, with a phone
  • phone their GP, or emergency department
  • in a medical emergency (if you have severe symptoms) phone 112 or 999

Within the clubhouse, we have taken measures to facilitate an increase in hygiene practices with the installation of hand santisers at entry and exits, handwashing guidelines in all bathrooms and the installation of paper towel dispensers to alleviate the need to use hand dryers.
