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.”
