TO ALL DDSL CLUB SECRETARIES

As we approach the start of the 2020/2021 Season commencing weekend 12th/13th September I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our Clubs the very best in these uncertain and challenging times.

There are in excess of 950 games scheduled. An amazing statistic and a credit to the commitment of our Clubs and all our stakeholders.

The dates set out below are of course subject to any and all guidelines issued by the HSE & NPHET.

We ask all Clubs to comply with the protocols already in place from the FAI, to ensure as far as is possible the safety and wellbeing of all our stakeholders.

Please stay safe as we start the new season, we hope everyone can enjoy the game we all love.

As a mark of respect and remembrance we ask all Clubs to observe a minutes silence for all those that are suffering or have succumbed to this dreadful virus prior to the kick off in the first matches of the new Season.

Please take care, stay safe and enjoy the football.

For and on behalf,

ALL STAFF,
