Any truth in the rumours the Down JHC & IHC have been scrapped for the year?

Replying To Ballygalgetmad:  "I heard myself apparently on Thursday Ulster council make announcement"
to disgrace these games have not been played could have been fitted in along with the football weeks ago goes to show football comes first
Jhc & ihc should have their fees returned plus the players club membership

Guidance already issued to the clubs stated this pause would involve 2 weekends game free and at which time further clarification would be provided. I make that next week. I cant see the Ulster council making any decision that would affect the Donegal football final!!

Not looking good for JHC/IHC

Following the announcements made yesterday on the measures being introduced by the NI Executive for the next four weeks and subsequent decision by the Irish Government to place Cavan, Donegal and Monaghan in Level 4 restrictions I felt it was important to set out our understanding of what it means for our units.

Essentially all our nine counties are now in a significantly increased level of restriction in an attempt by Governments to curb the spread of Covid-19.

With that in mind and with effect from Friday 16th October all club activity, including training sessions that have been taking place since the Association's directive on Monday 5th October 2020 should cease for all GAA units in Ulster.

The only activity that is exempt from this cessation across both jurisdictions is elite level Inter County activity.

For the purposes of clarity this includes Gaelic Football, Hurling, Camogie and Ladies Gaelic Football from U16 level up as recognised by both Governments.
