GAA Suspend Club games at all levels

The GAA’s Management Committee have endorsed a decision to suspend all club games at all levels with immediate effect and until further notice.

In a statement released on the GAA Website, they noted the decision was taken in the interest of public safety following a number of incidents that were brought to the Associations attention in recent days, particularly post match celebrations and a lack of social distancing at certain events, proved to be both dissappointing and problematic.

The Directive applies to all ages and all grades across Ireland.

Club Social Centers/bars are also to close.

Training will continue to be permitted as per the guidelines outlined for the relevant levels in the National framework.

They conclude by stating they will continue to monitor the situation in the coming days and weeks regarding changes in Government guidelines.

That decision by the GAA will see Longford Senior semi finals which were due to take place tomorrow eve, now not happen.

Defending champoins Killoe Emmet Ogs were to face Mostrim while Longford Slashers would go up against Mullinalaghta St. Columbas.

In Cavan the Junior final between Templeport St Aidans and Denn had been due to throw in on Sunday past, but was postponed with a re-fixed date now very much up in the air.

Elsewhere, the Cork and Donegal football senior championship finals have yet to be decided as well as the Laois and Meath hurling finals.
