Forget behind closed doors matches. Cancel the matches. Players and back room team will still be at risk.

If thereís no All Ireland championships this year, well then, thatís just the way it is. Itís only sport. Peoples lives are far more important.

Call the season off and forget about promotion and relegation.

Same teams in same divisions next year and go again.

so long as Tyrone can play Kerry and Dublin again next year on bad pitches.

in all seriousness, i have to agree that the GAA response has been really poor on this. they need to make a statement asap.

Potential for this week's league games now to be cancelled going by Varadkar's statement?

I took it as they were definitely going to be off.

If you were a player, would you want to play?

You'd assume so but nothing official yet from the GAA.

Presumably all the CC delegates/members would have to be consulted plus Co Chairs etc before any announcement.
We wouldn't want the paid "suits in Croke Park" dictating would we?
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

Why on earth would the GAA have ordered a full shutdown when all its members are still mingling daily at school and work?

The GAA can now follow up appropriately and will do today.

Some of you are demanding. Some of you are just twisty and nasty. Most of you are just unrealistic.

It's called leadership! The GAA has a responsibility to look after the best interest of its members and players. Regardless of what other activities its members get up to there is an onus on the GAA hierarchy to give a clear direction for matches and club activity. I'm sure they will get their act together soon following the Gov announcement but I'd have expected it to be sooner.
