The Kilkenny vs Wexford Allianz League Round 3 match which was due to take place tomorrow in Nowlan Park has been called off.

A third Covid-19 case has been confirmed in the Wexford Senior hurling camp.

A Wexford GAA statement reads as follows:

“Wexford GAA wish to announce that we have requested a postponement of our Allianz League senior hurling game against Kilkenny, due to take place tomorrow. This follows further testing of the senior hurling panel on Friday 21st May, which have shown that one further member of the panel has tested positive of Covid-19.”

“Following receipt of these results at lunchtime today and further consultation with public health officials, it was agreed that there was a possibility of transmission with the squad and players will restrict movements until further testing next week. The CCCC have confirmed that the game will not go ahead tomorrow and will consider our request for a re-fixture on Monday.”

While we were all looking forward to the derby clash, Wexford GAA have erred on the side of caution and should be commended.
