Juveniles
The club will like to use this opportunity to thank all coaches, mentors, helpers, parents and guardians who went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that our children were given the opportunity to train and play in competitive, challenge and fun games these last few weeks in a safe environment despite the ongoing pandemic. We however urge all our juveniles to keep practising at home and if in touch with friends, to do so in a safe manner.

Further Covid-19 Update to Clubs
Adult Club Games The additional Level 3 Restrictions have removed the exemption for Adult club games. The Government have stated that this will be the position until at least November 10th. In the interim, and while training is allowed at both adult and underage, it must be on a non-contact basis in pods of no more than 15 people in Counties that are in Level 3. The advice for Ulster Counties remains as per the communication from the Ulster Council yesterday. Other Activities Commercial use of indoor halls continues to be permitted where agreement was in place prior to March and relevant insurance are in place. Use by State bodies e.g. HSE/Schools is also permitted. In light of updated advice, Drive-in events (such as Bingo etc) are no longer permitted to take place.

Birthday Wishes Best wishes to Mossie Quirke who marked his 90th birthday last week.

Sympathy
The club would like to extend its sympathy to the families and friends of Gerard (John) Counihan Listellick North and formerly of Killerisk and Margaret Bynane Derrymore East.

Juveniles
U6: In light of the level 3 restrictions we held a drive through presentation at St Pats on Sunday morning. Well done to all the boys & girls who participated this season & were rewarded with certs & St Pats goodie bags. We have had a successful season despite COVID19 restrictions. It has been great to get boys & girls out in the fresh air playing with their friends. We will take a break from formal training now but don’t forget to keep up the practice at home in the garden or keep handling soft balls or balloons inside throughout the winter. Thanks to the under 6s coaches Liam Poff, Norma Flynn, Rosalie Sheehan & Fiacc Murphy & thanks also to Fiacc for his great photography skills throughout the year. Keep safe everyone & we look forward to returning in the new year. Don’t forget to support your club by Playing the St Pats Lotto Online. Anyone wishing to help out in the future will be more than welcome.
U8: Our U8 training come to a premature end on Sunday due to increased COVID Restrictions. Many thanks to all players who came to the pitch to collect their end of year certificates and goodie bags. We are very grateful for the last few months of activity where we have played a huge amount of games and had a lot of fun. We would also like to extend a warm welcome to all our new players who have given the coaches and team a great boost and hope you enjoyed playing with St Pats for the first time. It is likely that the age groups will change to the odd numbers next year at club level so hopefully we will all be reunited early in the New Year for training at u9. In the meantime it would be great if you could practise your skills over the winter with particular emphasis on the solo and the solo run.
U10: The curtain came down on our St Pats u-10 season last Sunday morning. There was a great turnout of boys and girls who were all presented with a goodie bag and a beautiful St Pats certificate of achievement for the great progress they made with their football skills during the year. Huge credit is due to the players for the effort they gave during the year. Our season started away back in January when we commenced with Sunday morning indoor sessions at the Kerry Sports Academy. The facilities available in the Academy allowed our players to practice and improve some of the basic skills in anticipation of the move to our outdoor facilities in March. However Covid-10 intervened and in March we had to suspend all playing activity. Our sessions restarted outdoors in the Club grounds in early July and thankfully we had a great run of coaching sessions and games which culminated in the end of season presentations last Sunday. Along the way our players were able to enjoy the Kellogs Cúl Camp and home games against Churchill, Listry and Keel. For a change of scenery we had away games against Ardfert, Na Gaeil and Kerins O’Rahillys. Thanks to all of the parents of our under 10 players for getting the players to the coaching sessions and the games. For their commitment to and their encouragement of these players the coaches Johnny Enright, John Colivet, Sean Daly and Roger Price are offered a sincere thank you. Thanks also to our Juvenile coordinator / chairman Joe Costello, our Juvenile secretary Terry Boyle for their help during the year. It is important our U10’s all keep practicing their skills at home during the off season. We look forward to watching you continue to progress in your football development in 2021. Naomh Padraig abú. Stay safe !!!

Covid-19 Update to Clubs and Counties
Following confirmation that all 26 Counties will move to Level 3 of the Irish Government’s Plan for Living with Covid 19, the GAA’s Covid Advisory group has issued the following key updates for those involved in Gaelic Games in the 26 Counties. The Executive in the North is due to meet later this week and it is anticipated that further restrictions may be imposed due to the rising infection levels in the six counties. CLUB SPECIFIC GUIDELINES 1. Club Games The GAA, Camogie and LGFA have taken the decision that no club games should take place until further notice and for at least the next two weekends. This position will then be reviewed and we will contact Clubs and Counties with any update on this position when it is available. 2. Club Training In level 3, all underage training must be on a non-contact basis in pods of up to 15. Adult teams can continue to train as normal. All clubs and players are reminded that Health Questionnaires and all other relevant control measures must continue to be followed for club training. 3. Use of Indoor Team Facilities Dressing rooms, showers, gyms and all other indoor training facilities should remain closed for club activities. 4. Committee Meetings No indoor meetings should be held. 5. Officer Training All officer Training must be delivered on line.

Use by State bodies e.g. HSE/Schools is also permitted. These are the only instances in which indoor activity is permitted on GAA Club property. 8. Outdoor Events on GAA Property Gatherings of up to 15 people only are permitted. As such, fundraisers such as fittest family, Couch to 5k etc should not be organised. Planned drive in events may continue, however patrons must remain in their vehicle for the entire duration of the event with no access to club facilities including bathrooms.

Training can continue on a non-contact basis in pods of no more than 15 people No games or training sessions are permitted in 3rd level institutions in either jurisdiction. INTER COUNTY SPECIFIC GUIDELINES 10. Use of Indoor Team Facilities Inter county activity has been classified as an exemption to the normal restrictive provisions by the Government. Therefore the use of such facilities currently is for Inter County Teams only (Senior, U20, Minor) and should be carried out in accordance with the Return to Training and Play for Inter County Teams advice document issued recently. Inter County players may use their relevant Club Gym for individual training as long as they are following the advice in the Inter County Return to Training and Play document.

Inter County Challenge Games Inter County Challenge games may take place at Senior level only. From midnight tonight, October 7th, challenge games can no longer take place at U20 or Minor grades. 12. Attendances at Inter County Games In Level 3, all inter county games must be played behind closed doors. For Minor intercounty games or training sessions staged behind closed doors and because they involve players aged 17 and under, · No more than 1 designated individual (parent/guardian) should attend a training session or game per child/family/group of children. · The GAA Health Questionnaires MUST be completed by parents/guardians in advance of attendance. Parents are NOT permitted to be in attendance at adult or U20 games where their child (U18) is participating. However, provision can be made to allow an adult to be in close proximity (e.g. in the car park etc) in case medical or other emergency needs require their presence
