The Hockey Ireland Board, after consultation with its branches, has decided the following in the interest of the health and safety of the hockey community and all people on the island of Ireland:
Hockey Ireland together with its four provincial branches are suspending all hockey activity with immediate effect until the 29th March 2020 and is directing all clubs and schools to do the same. All hockey activity including training and education across clubs and schools must now cease. We understand that this decision is disappointing to all hockey players, coaches, officials, volunteers, and supporters, but in light of the circumstances, Hockey Ireland believes this is in our members’ best interests.
As such the Irish Senior Cup Finals which were due to take place in UCD on the 29th March 2020 are now postponed. As the situation is changing very quickly, we will continue to closely follow developments and issue further information regarding the Hockey Ireland Cup Finals approaching the 29th March Date.
