GAA clubs across the country are being encouraged to take part in a new initiative aimed at supporting the elderly and vulnerable in communities.

'Club Together' is partnership between Supervalu, Centra and the GAA.

They are issuing an urgent appeal to club members asking them to volunteer and help do the shopping for those who are old, vulnerable or may be self-isolating, and then deliver it.

GAA Clubs who are interested in giving their time to Club Together, are asked to contact their local SuperValu or Centra store to find out more.

President of the GAA, John Horan, said, "this is a testing time and one when the oft-mentioned virtues of the GAA’s Community ethos needs to come to the fore.

"This is happening already and through this most worthwhile initiative it will continue to happen, making a positive tangible difference to those in our communities who may need assistance."

He added, "I am strongly encouraging our clubs and members to look at this initiative and to throw their weight behind it.

"Our reach across the island is reflected in the SuperValu and Centra networks and I believe working together we can ensure that everyone is connected and has access to the basic essentials we all need at a time like this."

Martin Kelleher, Managing Director SuperValu and Centra, said, "we’re delighted to team up with the GAA, a long-term partner of ours, to support the elderly in our communities."

Further information on the 'Club Together' initiative and how the elderly can avail of the service will be announced next week.
