This morning I met with our club doctor Sinead Fitzpatrick to discuss the potential impact on player (and club officials) safety. After discussing this and taking on board the information from the FAI medical officer Alan Byrne, the decision has been made to suspend all training immediately for 12 days.
On Wednesday the 24th of March will re-assess this decision based on the information provided by the government, FAI and UEFA. Players, fans and the wider public’s health must come first. Based on all information coming in to us, it seems to be the right thing to do. I would like to thank everyone for understanding and for your continued support. I am also aware of the Block E GoFundMe initiative set up to provide financial support for us in this difficult time. Thank you for being there again lads.
