Laois GAA championship games postponed following positive Coronavirus case

The Laois Ladies senior footballer championship has been delayed following an appeal

Laois GAA have postponed two championship matches which were due to take place this week due to a confirmed Coronavirus case.

The Intermediate football championship match between Timahoe and Crettyard will now take place on Monday August 10. The Round 1 clash was due to be in Stradbally on Thursday August 6 at 7.30pm.

While the Junior A meeting between Park-Ratheniska and Castletown, scheduled for Friday night in Ratheniska, is also off and refixed for Monday at 7.15pm.

Yesterday, Park-Ratheniska and Timahoe informed members that they were shutting down all club activities for the coming days after an adult player, with Park-Ratheniska-Timahoe hurlers, tested positive for Coronavirus.

LaoisToday understands that 25 people have been identified as potential close contacts of the person and they will be sent forward for a test – with some already having undergone one.

Meanwhile, along with Timahoe and Park-Ratheniska, Timahoe Ladies have also suspended all activity.

They said: “Timahoe Ladies Football Club want to advise clubs as a precautionary measure we have decided to temporarily suspend all club activities until further notice.

“We have been made aware that a member has been in close contact with another player who has since tested positive for Covid-19.

“All precautions are being taken in line with the LGFA and Public Health recommendations. We will keep you posted on resumption of activities.”
