Our National Board are working to develop guidelines to support our volunteer leaders to re-open GB safely for the new session. These will be circulated to all GB leaders and information for parents and guardians will be available also.
All face-to-face activities of The Girls’ Brigade Ireland were suspended on March 12th after an emergency meeting of our National Board. This suspension remains in place until the above mentioned guidelines are in place. During this suspension, no weekly meetings, competitions, displays or other in-person events will be held.
