According to the details provided by the Deputy, the event to which he refers is not a sporting activity conducted under the remit of a National Governing Body of Sport that is recognised by Sport Ireland.

As the event described would appear to be an organised outdoor event, I would refer the Deputy to the Government's recent announcement, which permits, from the 7th of June, 2021, the holding of outdoor events on the basis that the numbers in attendance at such events does not exceed 100 people for the majority of venues, with a maximum of 200 for outdoor venues with a minimum accredited capacity of 5,000.

The Government's decision to move ahead with the next stage of reopening the economy and society in line with Resilience and Recovery: The Path Ahead plan recognises the extraordinary efforts and support of the Irish people. To maintain momentum, it is essential that all concerned, including the participants and organisers of the event referred to by the Deputy, continue to follow the individual everyday measures in the public health guidelines in the coming weeks.
