GAA & LGFA suspend all activity

The GAA and LGFA have announced a blanket ban of all club and county activity until March 29th, in the wake of the Government’s announcement on Thursday.

A joint statement from the GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association was issued by Croke Park on Thursday afternoon.

It means this weekend’s national football and hurling league fixtures involving Donegal, Leitrim and Sligo are all postponed.

The full text of the GAA/LGFA statement is below:

“In light of this morning’s Government announcement, the GAA, An Cumann Camógaíochta and the Ladies Gaelic Football Association have decided to suspend all activity at club, inter-county and educational levels until March 29 (inclusive) from midnight.

This is to include all games, training and team gatherings at all ages and all grades.

We will continue to liaise with Government officials and review the situation between now and the end of the month, assessing the impact of these measures on our competitions. 

In the meantime, the Association is encouraging all members to continue to follow the guidelines which have been provided by the health authorities.”
