The Tipperary county board has confirmed that the senior hurling panel are complying with HSE advise to restrict their movements for two weeks following a training camp in Spain.

The panel, management and back-room team flew out to the Costa Blanca on Monday, before returning to Ireland via Shannon Airport on Friday with manager Liam Sheedy having been expected to seek guidance from the HSE on their next steps as efforts to control the spread of the coronavirus continue.

All people coming back from Spain and Italy are being asked to restrict their movements for the next two weeks. That includes not going to work, and a general lessening of their social interactions.

Tipperary's county board have confirmed that the panel who returned from the warm-weather training camp are complying with protocols.

A statement read: "The Tipperary Senior Hurling team were on a warm weather training camp in south-eastern Spain from Monday 9th March to Friday 13th March.

"The travelling party stayed in private accommodation where there were no other residents and remained in this private location for the duration of their stay.

"They followed HSE and WHO advice in relation to protection against COVID-19 at all times while travelling and while on the training camp.

"On their return on Friday night, they were advised by representatives of the HSE at Shannon Airport that they should restrict their movements for the next two weeks which includes not going to work and reducing social interactions. All members of the travelling party are complying fully with these requirements."
