There already was a limit on the numbers who could attend games…
Previously, 200 people could attend GAA games, soccer games, and outdoor gatherings.
Now, Mary Regan, a political reporter with RTE News, is reporting that all future matches nationwide —for the time being anyway — will be played behind closed doors.
This would include this weekend’s Wexford Senior hurling final, along with the other upcoming Intermediate and Junior finals, and future Gaelic football matches as they also return to pitches across Wexford this weekend.
The move comes after the Republic of Ireland has seen a rise in Covid-19 cases, but it will be a huge blow to fans across the country.
Reports have suggested that the Government are set to make an announcement following an additional Government meeting this evening. As per a new report from RTE News, these restrictions are set to last until September 13th at the earliest.
Although the games will be played behind closed doors, the Wexford Senior hurling championship final between the Shels and the Gorey men still should be broadcasted live on TG4 this Sunday at 2pm.
