Spectators can return to local GAA matches in the North

Sinn Féin councillor Cathal Mclaughlin is delighted that spectators are set to return to local GAA matches this weekend in the north of Ireland as part of the latest relaxation of lockdown restrictions by the Stormont Executive.

Councillor McLaughlin said: “Stormont ministers have agreed that spectators can now be present at outdoor sporting venues where “access can be controlled and social distancing maintained.

“These stipulations should make it easy for GAA clubs to meet. Clubs and county officials have always insisted they could have catered for social distancing requirements, given the relatively small number of spectators who attend club matches.

“There was considerable dismay last week when club games went ahead without spectators, but now in a statement released by the GAA, they have confirmed that numbers will be limited to between 250 and 400 depending on the circumstances.”
