Raheny released a statement this evening saying that the player had shown no symptoms and was surprised to receive a positive result. 

The club outlined the steps they would after consulting with the Dublin county board. 

"The Men's Senior Football panel will not train or play matches until all panellists are tested and return a negative result. Contact tracing is taking place by health officials and close contacts will be identified and contacted. Players and mentors will follow health advice in relation to isolating and health monitoring.

"All other club games will take place on the basis that the teams involved have had no contact with the Men's Senior Football Panel during the last 14 days. All players and teams should follow normal GAA guidelines ensuring that Return to Play Health Questionnaires are completed before each training session or game."

The match was due to take place at Parnell Park on 2.30pm with deferred coverage being screened on TG4. 

The postponed game was vital for both teams with both still having a chance to progress to the knockout round, though Plunketts are also dependent on Kilmacud Crokes defeating Castleknock in the other group game.

That game has been moved to Parnell Park as a result of the confirmed case, with 2018 Dublin SFC champions Crokes currently sitting top of Group 4 with two wins from two.

Covid-19 has caused disruption to county championships elsewhere, with Clare outfit Cratloe seeing upcoming games postponed due to a cluster within the club.
