The IRFU has welcomed the announcement from the government today which permits the return of sport from Monday, 29 June.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the IRFU, the provinces and the clubs have illustrated their commitment to the safety of its players and volunteers. 

The process of implementing the appropriate public health measures in our clubs has accelerated in recent weeks and we are committed to returning to rugby safely.

The IRFU in consultation with the provinces will assess the latest update from the Irish government and will communicate with clubs in due course.
