Clare board backs Brian Lohan in Covid contacts row

CLARE GAA has backed senior hurling manager Brian Lohan over his comments about how two Clare players were deemed close contacts of confirmed Covid-19 cases. The issue arose after two Wexford hurlers that played against Clare were confirmed as having contracted the virus, and two Clare players were later deemed close contacts. Lohan’s queries over how they were identified prompted an angry response from Wexford. The county board this Tuesday stated, “The HSE designated the Clare players as close contacts which is their function and was never disputed. The issue is how they were identified as close contacts. “The HSE in the Mid-West region were informed by the contact tracing team in relation to the decision that was made. Brian Lohan as manager of the Clare Team contacted the HSE locally when he was informed of the identification of two senior hurlers as close contacts. “The HSE informed Brian Lohan that two players were identified on foot of discussions between …

Two Clare hurlers self-isolating despite negative Covid test

DESPITE returning negative Covid tests, two Clare hurlers will continue to self-isolate and step back from training. In a statement, Clare GAA confirmed it had asked the two players who were deemed close contacts last week after the Wexford game to “step back from training and game activity once they were named”. The players, as a consequence, had to isolate for the intervening 10 days from notification. “Following voluntary testing of the two nominated Clare players they were deemed to be negative but will still be isolating,” the statement said. “At all times Clare GAA teams adhere to the guidelines laid down by the HSE and the governing body of our sport. Clare GAA will take on board at all times the advice and support provided by the health authorities. “Clare GAA will endeavour to ensure the strictest management of health and safety during Covid and non-Covid times for all Clare GAA teams and request that the clubs of the …

THE Clare County Board will closely monitor its senior hurlers over the coming week after two members of the Wexford hurling panel tested positive for Covid-19 this week, writes Dan Danaher. Wexford GAA chairman, Micheál Martin has confirmed that two players within the panel have tested positive for the virus. A spokesman for the Clare County Board confirmed that Croke Park had not directed the board to test its senior hurlers following Wexford’s confirmed cases. However, the board will closely monitor Clare hurlers and will request a Covid-19 test without delay, if this is deemed necessary at a later stage. It is understood the fact the match was played outdoors is regarded as low risk in terms of transmission.
