Ballymac GAA and Ballymac Community Alert Work together.

Ballymacelligott GAA in conjunction with Ballymacelligott Community Alert Group are offering help to anyone in the area that needs it over the next while.

We will offer services such as delivering shopping, medication and fuel for those living alone or unable to do so. If you need help or would like to volunteer to assist please call or text Fionnán Fitzgerald at 087-986 0441or Maureen O’Shea at 087-979 5220, Jer Lynch at 087-2025402

It is very important that all assistance be given in a safe hygienic manner. Hands should be washed before handling bags, medication etc. Safe social distance of at least 2 metres should be observed. Sneezing should be done into tissue or the elbow. Houses should not be entered.

Payment to shops can be made over the phone and we can collect and deliver. If unable to pay over the phone the amount should be placed in an envelope after washing hands and left outside the house once the person delivering appears.

The person delivering will be a local, you will have their number and deliveries will be made in daylight hours.

By working together calmly and steadily we will overcome – Ballymac always has.

Update on Ladies Football

With the suspension of all activity at club, inter-county and educational levels until March 29th, which no doubt will be extended on the advice of the HSE and government in the coming days, The LGFA  have had to look at all activities which were ongoing since January and some planned to take place over the coming weeks.

The LGFA Management Committee through conference calls have made the decisions with regard to competions and Development dates. The full list is on
As you can see through the LGFA  in the past week we have made every effort to keep our members engaged through the following:

•             Player Skills Videos online for people to practice at home

•             50 question online rules refresher

•             Player interviews

•             The LGFA Show  – development focused

Over the coming weeks the LGFA  will be adding more online activity and training that may be of assistance to you all.

We can’t stop the virus, but together, we can slow it down.

Keep practicing the below and play your part by :

– Reduce social contacting – stay apart but stay in contact with family, friend & neighbours

– Distance yourselves 2 metres from people in shops and supermarkets

– Stop shaking hands

– Avoid touching our eyes, nose or mouth

– Washing our hands regularly and practice cough and sneeze hygiene

– Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

– Work from home where possible

We need your help with Contact Tracing

We have been sent a suggestion that all people should be encouraged to keep a diary of all places they visit and a list of the people they have physical contact with on a daily basis.

If this is taken on board, it would reduce the workload of those working tirelessly with the job of Contact Tracing in the weeks ahead.

If this message was sent to all Groups, Clubs, Societies and all in turn sent this message to all their members this would make a big difference in identifying people who needed to be contacted and reduce the workload of Contact Tracing.

I hope that you will pass on this message to family and friends once you have started your own diary.
Start with yourself today .  Many Thanks
