ROI Events Unaffected

Following consultations with Sport Ireland, Triathlon Ireland can confirm that all our sanctioned events in the Republic of Ireland may proceed as planned under the COVID-19 health protection measures issued by the Government last night (Tuesday 18th August).

This means that events with up to 200 people are permitted between August 18th and September 13th providing they abide by the strict guidelines which we have already issued and which have already been approved by the ROI Government.

Abide by Government advice 

We remind our community in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland that it is vital that every one of us exercises personal responsibility in relation to COVID-19 by
- abiding by the latest advice from our respective governments related to non-sporting activities;
- by maintaining social distancing and
- good respiratory hygiene and
- by hand washing.


Training can continue in clubs in groups of 15 people outdoors and six people indoors, as long as strict social distancing is maintained.
Swimming Pools remain open as normal and clubs should abide by any guidelines in operation at the facility.
Triathlon Ireland is awaiting clarification from Sport Ireland on whether multiple groups of 15 are permitted to train simultaneously.
