From midnight, the country makes a nationwide move to Level 5 Covid-19 restrictions
The GAA had believed that all inter-county action would be exempt, but only the senior competitions have been given the green light to proceed.
That means disappointment for Luke Barrett’s Donegal minors who were set to host Tyrone at Sean Mac Cumhaill Park on Saturday.
A statement from the GAA said: “Following clarification from the Department of Sport around the staging of inter-county fixtures, the GAA can confirm that as of midnight this evening, all minor and U20 inter-county competitions are paused until further notice.
“Accordingly, Saturday’s scheduled EirGrid GAA U20 football final meeting of Dublin and Galway will not take place.
“This evening’s Bord Gáis Energy Leinster U20 hurling fixtures will proceed.
“Additionally, the GAA’s CCCC has been informed that Longford will not be fulfilling their Allianz Football League fixture with Cork this weekend.”Tags:
