The Games Administration Committee of the GAA confirmed today that London will not complete their Allianz National League programmes because of the foot and mouth outbreak in Britain. With the Government anxious to keep the disease from entering the Republic of Ireland, it was felt that continuing their involvement in this season's football and hurling campaigns was too great a risk to take.

As a result, previous league points accrued in matches involving London will now be discounted.
