The Club, and local businesses, were the subject of an anonymous WhatsApp message campaign over the last 24 hours. Social Media allows untruths, rumours and gossip to spread quickly and widely.
To be very clear, the allegations in the message are totally unfounded. They are untrue, and there is categorically no basis in fact for the serious allegations.
CLG Naomh Jude has at all times during the Pandemic worked with Local Authorities, community organisations, local businesses, schools, and ensured that all HSE guidelines were followed. We support all of the frontline staff in their efforts to defeat Covid-19.
Our members are nurses, teachers, and Gardaí. Our members are frontline and essential workers, playing their part in the fight against this virus. Any negative reflection on them will be vigorously rejected. Any unfounded allegations against the volunteers of this community organisation will not be accepted. We thank members, and the wider GAA Community, for their messages of support, encouragement and understanding.
We are very proud to belong to the wonderful community that is Templeogue. We are proud to play our small role as part of the fabric of this caring community.
We are also proud to be part of the GAA family, who pull together and cooperate in so many fantastic ways, at the heart of communities in every county.
We will continue to play our part in this community. After one of our most successful years on and off the pitch, we will not be discouraged by cynical or malicious attempts to undermine the work of our Club.
We take these unfounded allegations seriously, and have engaged with An Garda Siochána regarding our Covid-19 systems. Any further allegations of illegal action against the Club will be referred to the appropriate authorities.
Ní neart go cur le chéile.
CLG Naomh Jude
