All GAA activities are currently suspended but that hasn't stopped some resourceful clubs from using technology to help organise training sessions.
With group activities impossible as well all work together to fight the spread of Covid-19, technology and particularily the group conferencing software of Zoom has come to the rescue for some.
At the weekend Na Fianna in Dublin ran a number of coaching sessions involving players online. All the children took part from the safety of their own homes.
And itis not just training that Zoom is helping with. The Charleston Hurling Club held their monthly meeting online.
We’re in awe at the response to our 1st @Sherry_Fitz Nursery by zoom: 100 homes + approx 200 children took part + got active #togetherbutapart. Hoping more young members can tune in next Sat morn: contact us if you want to join in!#GAABelong @officialgaa @DubGAAOfficial #COVID19 pic.twitter.com/qVNw7i0mCV— CLG Na Fianna (@clgNaFianna) March 30, 2020

Na Fianna 2011 Boys (u9s) did their first @zoom_us group training session this evening. 33 boys in back gardens training together but apart. Check it out @DubGAAOfficial @officialgaa #newnormal #StayHomeStaySafe #NaFiannaAbú pic.twitter.com/a1pgxCPJlr
While it may not have been our normal spot, the board had a fun time "hanging out" tonight in our March Board Meeting on Zoom. Can't wait until we can get back together though!#upcharleston #charlestonhurling #chshurling #zoomboardmeetings #hurling @GAA_USA @UsgaaS @playhurling pic.twitter.com/OJYuN5gyV5— Charleston Hurling (@CharlestonHC) March 30, 2020
