Croke Park will host the next major event in the Muslim calendar, Eid Al Adha.

The 'Festival of Sacrifice' is one of the most important festivals in the Muslim calendar.

It is expected that 500 people will be able to attend the celebration in Croke Park to allow for social distancing.

The GAA President John Horan has said staging the celebration at Croke Park shows the Association's commitment to inclusion and it's belief that it's 'Where We All Belong'. 

Shaykh Dr Umar Al-Qadri of the Irish Muslim Peace & Integration Council has said the choice of Croke Park will be symbolic to Irish Muslims in their 'dual-identity' as being both Irish and Muslim. 

Eid Al Adha is scheduled to take place on 31st July 2020 or the 1st of August 2020, depending on moonsighting. 

This year, Ramadan and Eid ul Fitr celebrations took place in the homes of Muslims due to Covid-19 restrictions.
