One of the biggest GAA clubs in Belfast has closed its clubhouse and suspended all training and matches after a member tested positive for coronavirus.

The affected club is St Gall's, winners of the All-Ireland Club Senior Football Championship in 2010, who are based on the Falls Road in west Belfast.

An adult non-playing member of the club recently tested positive for Covid-19 after returning from a trip to Italy.

The clubhouse has been closed for a deep clean on advice from Northern Ireland's Public Health Agency.

It's understood the patient visited the clubhouse a week ago.

The Public Health Agency is aware of when the patient last visited the premises and all club activities since then.

The club has described the move as a precautionary action.
