Borris in Ossory GAA response to Covid-19

Help during the coronavirus crisis

The current situation with the Coronavirus (Covid-19) virus is very serious and is a worrying time for everyone, with this comes a lot of stress, uncertainty and anxiety. It is one of those times when it is more important than ever that we all pull together and do what we can to ensure the health and safety of everyone in our community. It is unlikely that our community will remain untouched by COVID- 19 in spite of all our best efforts, therefore it is important that we have supports in place to help everyone where possible.  

Borris in Ossory/Kilcotton GAA were very quick to respond during the first lockdown and immediately put in place a Club Covid Volunteer group to assist anyone needing help, particularly the elderly, those living alone and the more vulnerable members of the community. The club would like it to be known that this group of volunteers continues to be available to assist anyone in the community who needs help with shopping for groceries or fuel and collection of prescriptions or hot meals, so that they can remain in the safety of their own homes.  If anyone has concerns about anybody in the community please tell any of the volunteers who will make contact with them and ensure that their requirements are met. 

All HSE Guidelines and Safety measures will be adhered to, particularly in relation to social distancing, wearing of masks, hand hygiene etc. 

The following is a list of the volunteers, their phone numbers and an area of responsibility in the parish designated to them.
