This year’s O’Connor Cup competition has been cancelled amid fears of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
The Ladies Gaelic Football Higher Education Committee released the following statement this afternoon:
"In line with the Government announcement on Covid 19, the Higher Education Committee is cancelling the 2020 O’Connor Cup Championships in Kerry, effective immediately.
“We understand that this decision will result in disappointment, especially amongst players and their backroom teams, especially when we are so close to concluding our championships but this is the right thing to do.
“Our responsibility now is to ensure that we look after each other, our families and friends and that we all return to the playing fields when the time is right to do so.”
The decision comes just hours after the Ladies HEC committee confirmed that the Giles Cup competition would not be going ahead this weekend.Tweet
