Cancellation of FTMTA Grass & Muck 2020.
Unfortunately, it has become inevitable in recent weeks that it would be necessary to cancel FTMTA Grass & Muck 2020 and the FTMTA has now formally made this decision. In reality, it is likely that this comes as no surprise at this stage.
In late March FTMTA took the step of postponing FTMTA Grass & Muck from the originally scheduled date of May 14th to a date in the second half of August. The decision announced by Government in recent weeks, effectively banning public gatherings of 5,000 and more people until at least September, has superseded that postponement.
The safety and health of all stakeholders, exhibitors and visitors and the wider implications for the national public health situation remain the paramount concern of the Association and, in that context, FTMTA was left with no option but to now cancel this year’s event.
Even as the Coronavirus / Covid-19 situation developed, the Association remained committed to delivering what would have been the largest ever FTMTA Grass & Muck event; unfortunately this was not to be this year.
The Association greatly appreciates the co-operation received from the management and team at Gurteen College in the past months as we worked together to prepare for the event. FTMTA remains fully committed to returning to Gurteen for FTMTA Grass & Muck in the future.
