Reports That Only Senior Inter-County GAA Matches Allowed Under Level 5

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.


Clare’s minor footballers are due to be in action against Tipperary this Saturday.

It’s not clear whether Clare’s all Ireland junior camogie championship clash against Wexford would be impacted.
