Armagh GAA have announced that all club activity in the county has been suspended with immediate effect.

This follows the upsurge in positive Covid-19 tests, with several clubs having to shut down.

“Following a meeting of Armagh County Management Committee this evening (Friday 2 October), the decision has been taken with immediate effect, to suspend all club activity until further notice.”

In a statement Armagh GAA Chairperson Michael Savage stated:

“Following an update today on the significant rise in cases across the north combined with a number of our clubs adversely impacted.

“This decision has not been taken lightly but we believe this is the right and responsible decision to safeguard our members and our communities.

“We will review this situation in consultation with Ulster GAA in the coming days and we urge all members to continue to follow the public health advice.”

Several games were due to take place across all divisions this weekend but they have all been postponed due to the suspension.
