Level 5 restrictions and implications for coursing
As of midnight October 21 2020, the government has moved to level 5 of the Covid Plan for the country.
Coursing will continue to operate similar to other sporting organisations and other elite sports. The ICC will operate on a “behind closed doors” basis, which means no spectators under any circumstances.
Entrants must not attend a coursing meeting if they have any symptoms of temperature, cough, cold, shortness of breath or any flu like symptoms or if they have had contact with a confirmed case of covid-19 in the last 14 days.
A maximum of two persons per runner is permitted to facilitate the running of the meeting (one person to bring the greyhound to slips and one to catch greyhound at conclusion of course) and this will be strictly enforced.
All permitted entrants shall provide their details for contact tracing purposes and a mask/visor must be worn while at the venue at all times, while observing social distancing. The ICC appointed Covid supervisors will assist in implementing the ICC Covid-19 Plan and you may consult with them if you have a query.
Each permitted entrant will be provided with a coded wrist band at the entrance to the grounds and this must be worn at all times or you will not gain entry.
Entrants are requested to follow all guidance from stewards and take note of all signage information.
Please have proof of your runner or reason for your attendance in the event that you are questioned as to the purpose of your journey while travelling to and from the venue (competition entry can be displayed from ICC draws section at www.irishcoursingclub.ie (live or a screenshot).
This Website Notice can also be produced and shown.
Please respect and protect the health of your fellow attendees at all times.
PLEASE DO NOT TRAVEL IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A LEGITIMATE PURPOSE FOR ATTENDING A MEETING
