The Community Call

Need help? We are here to answer “The Community Call”. It is an initiative that links local and national government with the community and voluntary sectors and the Rocks are part of it.

Our club volunteers will be informed by the group when a person or family needs help, such as shopping or medication delivered during these difficult days. We will then help as best as we can to deliver what is needed to the vulnerable.

Please call 1800 868 399 if you are in need of any assistance. Please email CovidSupport@wicklowcoco.ie.

Clubhouse and Pitches

Due to the current circumstances with COVID-19, the Arklow Rock’s clubhouse and pitches are closed until further notice.

Team managers, backroom personnel and players at all levels have not only a duty of care to each other but also to the wider community around them at this time.

It is expected therefore that County and Club teams across the country will adhere to both the letter and spirit of what has been asked of them at this challenging time.
