The Government has approved plans that will see spectators allowed to return to certain sports events in June as Covid-19 restrictions are relaxed on outdoor activities from next month.

They include the return of up to 1,200 fans for the Leinster v Dragons rugby game at the RDS on 11 June.

Also on 11 June, there will be up to 1,000 supporters at the SSE Airtricity League encounter between Shamrock Rovers and Finn Harps, while 600 fans will be allowed at the Cork City v Cabinteely fixture.

Up to 1,000 racegoers will be able to watch racing at the Curragh at the end of June.

The Littlewoods Ireland Camogie League final at Croke Park scheduled for 20 June can have 3,000 fans in the stadium, while the the Lidl National League Division 1 and 2 football finals on 26 June will also have fans in the stands.

Shamrock Rovers will have 1,000 fans in Tallaght once again for visit of Drogheda on 26 June, while Morton Stadium will welcome up to 400 spectators for the Irish Life Health National Senior Championships on 26 June.

Attendances at inter-county games later in the season could be significantly higher than previously predicted.

The National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) told the Cabinet Covid-19 Committee that up to 200 people should be able attend outdoor events at large venues in June.

While it has yet to be confirmed, RTÉ Sport understands proposals for attendances of 10,000 at the Leinster hurling final in mid-July, and over 25,000 at the All-Ireland finals in August, are also possible.

It has been reported that in early August, up to 5,000 people could be able to attend events in big outdoor venues, or 25% of capacity, whichever is the lower figure, but an increase on this is under consideration.

Up to 500 fans can attend events in Northern Ireland as of this week.

Meanwhile from 7 June, gyms, swimming pools, leisure centres can reopen for individual training. Then on 6 July indoor training and exercise can recommence in pods of up to six.
