IRFU COVID-19 Update For Clubs

4th January 2021 By The Editor

IRFU COVID-19 Update For Clubs

The Government of Ireland revised its Level 5 restrictions on December 30th 2020.

More information is available here.

The IRFU urges the entire rugby community to continue to prioritise the safety of our members.

At Level 5, the public health risk means that you will be asked to stay at home, except for travel for work, education or other essential purposes, or to take exercise within 5km of home.

The following applies to club rugby:

Matches and events:

  • No matches or events are to take place.


  • Collective training is not permitted for adults or children.
  • Individual training only
  • Gyms must close.
  • These measures are currently in effect and will remain so for the foreseeable future.

Please note under direction from the Return to Sport Expert Group, schools rugby and Energia All-Ireland League rugby are not classified under Professional & Elite Sport.

The IRFU is continuing to work with government stakeholders to ensure a full resumption of rugby at all levels of the game when it is safe to do so.

A full definition of Professional & Elite Sport is available on the Sport Ireland website here.
