Following the Government’s announcement earlier this week, the IRFU have clarified how this effects club rugby in a statement published on their website.

“The Government of Ireland have announced revisions to their Plan for Living with COVID-19.

The IRFU understands many people will have questions about changes to current restrictions as they apply to rugby in the community.

Level 5 restrictions will remain in place until April 5th 2021 at the earliest as follows:


People may meet with people from one other household in outdoor settings when taking exercise.

No indoor or outdoor exercise group activities, including those involving children, should take place.

Professional, elite sports, horse racing, greyhound racing and approved equestrian events only are permitted to continue behind closed doors.

No other matches or events are to take place.

Gyms, leisure centres and swimming pools
