Children and adolescents mental health has suffered during Covid (https://www.psychiatrictimes.com/view/new-findings-children-mental-health-covid-19 

We completely agree with the government limiting activities to protect us during Covid where there is clear scientific evidence linking such activities to the spread of Covid (ie closing wet pubs). However we are not aware of any evidence globally linking children's sports matches to the spread of Covid and therefore respectfully ask the government to change all levels of Covid measures in Ireland to allow underage sports matches to restart in January. 

Physical activity and sport has well known benefits in enhancing youth mental health (https://www.fsem.ac.uk/position_statement/the-role-of-physical-activity-and-sport-in-mental-health/#:~:text=Participation%20in%20regular%20physical%20activity,those%20experiencing%20them(9) and we believe this change will benefit our children's mental health both now and in the future
