As of Monday 18th May, the country entered Phase 1 of the Government’s Road map for Reopening Society and Business.
An expert group has been established by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport to provide guidance to Ireland’s sporting bodies to prepare for the phased return to sporting activity in line with the government's Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business.

The Expert Group will assess the consistency of the various protocols being prepared and includes medical experts from the Sport Ireland Institute and the sports sector, as well as officials from both the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport and Sport Ireland. The Group also contains a specific representation for disability sport.

The National Governing Bodies (NGBs) of a number of sports have developed protocols to allow them to be practiced safely in compliance with the prevailing public health advice under Phase One, which have been disseminated to their clubs and members.
