Both of this coming weekend’s Ulster minor football championship semi-finals have been postponed due to Level 5 restrictions.
Holders Monaghan were due to face Fermanagh on Sunday at Kingspan Breffni, with Derry and Tyrone down to play on the same afternoon in Clones.
However, last Thursday saw all four counties informed via e-mail that the games would not be going ahead as they were not permitted under the current restrictions.
Last week, both the Leinster minor hurling and football finals, which were also down for this weekend, were postponed due to the move to Level 5 restrictions.
It is understood that all of this weekend’s postponed fixtures will be played at the first available opportunity.
