The GAA, Ladies Gaelic Football Association and Camogie Association have confirmed this afternoon that all activities at club and county level are to be suspended from midnight tonight (Thursday).
It means that all games across the board have been postponed for a two-week period in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Having met with government officials earlier today, the GAA has since released the following statement to confirm its decision:
“In light of this morning’s Government announcement, the GAA, An Cumann Camógaíochta and the Ladies Gaelic Football Association have decided to suspend all activity at club, county and educational levels until March 29 (inclusive) from midnight.
“This is to include all games, training and team gatherings at all ages and all grades.
“We will continue to liaise with Government officials and review the situation between now and the end of the month, assessing the impact of these measures on our competitions.
“In the meantime, the Association is encouraging all members to continue to follow the guidelines which have been provided by the Health Authorities.”
