TJ Reid calls for reopening of GAA pitches for people to exercise during Covid-19

The Kilkenny and Ballyhale Shamrocks hurler made the statement on twitter

Ballyhale and Kilkenny hurler TJ Reid has called for the reopening of local GAA pitches so locals can exercise during Covid19.

He tweeted last night that “public parks are open and were packed over the weekend, yet rural club areas within 5km of people’s homes can’t be accessed for use of safe walkways and to enjoy the grass roots of the community.”

The GAA has closed all facilities until July 20th.
