DONEGAL GAA chiefs hope to see the conclusion of the All-County Football Leagues this weekend – but there remain clouds over some matters in Divisions 1 and 2.
The Competitions Controls Committee (CCC) have scheduled the final round of games for Sunday afternoon.
There are also two games slated for Friday night, but they involve Kilcar and Killybegs, who have suspended all club activity due to a Covid-19 outbreak in the south west of the county.
Kilcar, Killybegs and Division 2 club Naomh Columba have all suspended their club activities in recent days. The clubs have appealed to club members to follow public health guidelines to prevent any further spread of Covid-19 in their respective areas.
Killybegs are pencilled in to host Ardara on Friday night with Kilcar’s away game at Cloughaneely also remaining on the fixture schedule.
On Sunday, Killybegs are due to face St Michael’s at The Bridge and Kilcar are down to travel to Gaoth Dobhair, while Naomh Columba have an away assignment against St Mary’s, Convoy on Saturday evening that is still included on the timetable.
There are further possible complications in relation to placings in Division 2.
Milford have appealed the decision of the CCC to award a recent game in Termon’s favour. The referee for the game between Termon and Milford at The Burn Road recorded the result as a draw, but an appeal by Termon was upheld and a score of 1-13 to 1-12 in their favour applied. Milford, however, have launched an appeal to the Ulster Council.
Downings are also expected to begin an appeal after two recent games, against St Naul’s and Termon, were awarded to the opponents. It is understood that a request for postponements were turned down by the CCC and Downings have the right to appeal those decisions.Tags:
