Good to see you still have a sense of humour Lar ;D
I presume none of the Tyrone players come from those parts within the Derry/Strabane Council area.

Seems crazy that all the panel were deemed close contacts (Offaly). The guidelines, if followed, should ensure no one is a close contact.

Not all the panel were deemed close contacts.

The HSE has deemed almost every member of the Offaly panel as a ‘close contact’ of a player with Covid-19.

Sounds like Offaly messed up in how they ran the training session, given that the HSE have done contact tracing for a number of county panels and this is the only county who seem to have an issue relating directly to how a training session was run.

Should be a warning to other counties.
From what I read it seems the only lads who weren't close contacts were the lads who missed training.

It's very odd. Either HSE have gone nuclear on what is a close contact as opposed to a casual contact - in which case there's no point in continuing the season.

Or (presumably more likely) Offaly fecked up in the way they ran the session (e.g. everyone was huddled together in a changing room for tactical discussions)

They clearly messed up as training and playing matches is classed as casual contact not close.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose
