This page is being updated regularly and is subject at all times to the latest public health measures, which can be found on www.gov.ie/covid19/
Last updated: 15 September 2020.
From 13 September 2020, Drum Community Centre re-opens for the following categories of activities subject to current limits on the number of people and in line with public health measures:
- Low risk / non-contact sports clubs / organisations;
- Classes or groups where physical distancing recommendations can be adhered to (e.g. prayer group, yoga, fitness class etc).
Unfortunately it will not be possible to accommodate all bookings, as we are operating on a voluntary basis and some rooms remain closed due to physical distancing requirements.
There will be 30 minutes gap between each booking to reduce contact between different groups. This further reduces our capacity and limits the number of slots available. Therefore all previous bookings and arrangements are cancelled but we will try to facilitate a return to previous or similar time slots where possible.
We will continue to monitor the situation and a later date will be announced for the resumption of contact sports and other activities, subject to public health measures.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding in this regard.
All bookings must adhere to the relevant public health measures at all times.
- Current restrictions (Level 2) on indoor sports, training, exercise and dance classes
- Current restrictions (Level 2) on organised indoor events/gatherings other than sports and training
- General information about organised indoor events/gatherings in controlled environments
