Ahead of the restart of club games UPMC, the Nowlan Park stadium sponsor made a generous donation of 'safety officers' bibs to all clubs across the county. The bibs are intended to aid clubs and their officers ensure HSE and Public Health guidelines are implemented in this COVID-era. Pictured at the handover of the bibs to Clubs, are several senior hurlers, club representative, county board officals and UPMC representatives.
