The Longford SFC semi-finals scheduled for this weekend have been postponed due to two cases of Covid-19 among "active members of a GAA club" in the county.

In addition to Sunday's games, when Longford Slashers were set to take on 2018 champions Mullinalaghta St Columba's and holders Killoe Emmet Og were to face Mostrim, the intermediate final between Ardagh Moydow and St Brigid's Killashee is also off, as are a senior league game and junior quarter-final.

"You may be aware that two positive COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in our county over the past couple of days," said a Longford GAA statement.
