Covid-19 disrupted club matches at the weekend, with one game not taking place in Mayo and Donegal's Naomh Colmcille suspending activities.

The match between Louisburgh and Balla was postponed after talks between both clubs, following a confirmed case in the Louisburgh area.

A statement from Balla read: "Louisburgh contacted Balla on Friday evening 17th re concerns locally including a doctor advice to not play the fixture v Balla.

"Louisburgh followed up later suggesting the match be played behind closed doors.

"A number of calls between the clubs took place this morning. Balla officers, management an players discussed this.

"The Balla team is unwilling to travel this evening on the basis of the concerns raised by Louisburgh."

Louisburgh said they acted in an overly cautious way, but in the interest of both clubs.

They have halted all activities as they continue contact tracing.

Meanwhile Naomh Colmcille have also temporarily stopped activities after playing a challenge game against Derry side Glack, one of 10 clubs in the Oak Leaf county to suspend activity. 

Naomh Colmcille issued a statement: "The club has carried out a risk assessment and following guidance from the County board and HSE we took the difficult decision to suspend club activities over the weekend in the interest of everyone's safety and notified the CCC accordingly." 

However, the Donegal County Board later offered an alternative view as they tweeted: "Donegal GAA didn't give @Naomh_Colmcille guidance to suspend club activities contrary to their recent tweet.

"Rather, the club was directed to @officialgaa GAA protocols agreed with the HSE @Naomh_Colmcille have not advised the County Board that they have actual or suspected cases."

Meanwhile, Carlow club Old Leighlin have announced that they plan to resume normal activity this week.

The four-time county champions suspended all activity on Friday after learning one of their players had tested positive for Covid-19, but subsequent tests on that players' contacts have all come back negative.

The Killeshin and Arles-Kilcruise clubs in Laois had also paused all activity pending tests on their players as both teams had played Old Leighlin in challenge matches.

Arles-Kilcruise told members on Sunday that all players advised to be tested were negative for Covid.
