A number of Wexford Camogie club games were postponed recently…
It has now emerged that the reason that these club games were postponed was due to a Covid-19 precauation.
On Monday 17th August, two Wexford Senior Camogie games were postponed; HWH Bunclody vs Kilrush, and Clone Gaels (Monageer & Ferns) vs Oylegate were postponed.
Along with Senior games, the Intermediate quarter-final between Duffry Rovers and Castletown was postponed, while the Blackwater vs Clone Gaels game in the Junior C championship, which was scheduled for Tuesday, was postponed too.
The news comes after Cois na hAbhann Garden Centre, located in Camolin, have also decided to temporarily close their doors after a member of their staff tested positive for Covid-19.
The Wexford Camogie Association released a statement today :
“A number of Camogie players were possibly in contact with a person who tested positive for Covid-19. In light of this, and to ensure the health and safety of all of our players and management, Wexford Camogie took the decision to postpone a number of matches. Wexford Camogie will continue to monitor the situation,” the statement read.
Just like with the Garden Centre in Camolin, Wexford Camogie should be applauded here for their swift action as they wait on expert advice from the HSE. By doing this, they’ve also shown how the safety of their players and management remains paramount.
