GAA suspend all club activity with immediate effect


The GAA’s Management Committee has today endorsed a decision to suspend all GAA Club games ​at all levels with immediate effect ​and until further notice.

The decision has been taken in the interest of public safety following a number of incidents that have been brought to our attention in recent days. ​In particular, post-match celebrations and a lack of social distancing at certain events have proved disappointing and problematic.

This directive applies to all ages and all grades across the island.

The GAA are closely monitoring developments as the Government and NPHET continue to discuss putting new restrictions in place.

If inter-county games do go ahead it now seems almost certain they will be played out behind closed doors.

The GAA’s Covid-19 Advisory Group is due to meet this evening.
