GAA club’s bar manager claims she lost job after objecting to Covid-19 drinking (via Irish Times)

St Mark’s GAA club, Tallaght claims woman was made redundant due to lack of custom and argues her claim of unfair dismissal at WRC is invalid

A Dublin GAA club’s former bar manager claims she was falsely made redundant because she objected to illicit drinking in the clubhouse during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Eileen Grimes has lodged a complaint under the Unfair Dismissals Act against St Mark’s GAA club, of McGee Park, Cookstown Road, Tallaght, Dublin 24 over being “locked out” of work in April 2020.

“The locks were changed because I caught people drinking in the clubhouse,” she told the Workplace Relations Commission.

The club denied the circumstances alleged by Ms Grimes and maintained she was properly made redundant because of the impact of the pandemic.
