In line with current restrictions the game was played behind closed doors and like many games across the country was live streamed.

The Na Rossa scores coming from Christian Bonner and two Aidan McHugh frees. Half Time: Gaels 2-9 Na Rossa 0-3.
The home side hit three more goals in the second period courtesy of Full forward Brendan O’Brien(2) and the determined Sean McDonagh. Bonner hit 5 further points in the second half as he single-handedly took the game to the Glebe men.
