The GAA has confirmed to RTÉ Sport that it is continually monitoring the situation with regards to coronavirus, but that, as of now, all of this weekend's GAA fixtures will go ahead as planned.

The Allianz League quarter-finals are due to take place, with Wexford hosting Galway, and Waterford travelling to UPMC Nowlan Park to play Kilkenny.

It's round six of the football league, with the pairing of the Division 1 final still to be decided, while there are big games up for decision at the bottom of Division 2 and the top of Division 3 which could have implications for All-Ireland Football Championship participation in the summer.

"We continue to take our lead from the HSE who have advised that there is no need to alter our scheduling at this time," a GAA spokesperson told RTÉ Sport.

The next game of the Republic of Ireland's men's and women's soccer teams are set to be played behind closed doors, while a number of Champions League fixtures were also played this week without a crowd in attendance.

The association has confirmed that discussions have taken place over the eventuality of games being played behind closed doors, and that they will continue to heed the advice of the government in relation to large gatherings of people.
