GAELIC GAMES

It’s understood only senior inter-county GAA matches will be allowed to proceed under the government’s Level 5 Covid-19 restrictions, which come into force tonight.

The government had stated “No training or matches should take place, with the exception of inter-county gaelic games.”

However, reports this morning suggest that does not include games at minor or under-20 grade.

The Leinster under-20 hurling championship was to continue this evening with three games scheduled, while the All-Ireland under-20 football final between Galway and Dublin had been set for Portlaoise on Saturday.
