GAA club teams in the south can start using dressing rooms again, but with a maximum occupancy of only six people at any one time.

As Covid restrictions continue to ease, the GAA has given the green light to make dressing rooms available for club use from last night, albeit on a limited basis. It comes after many players, including Offaly star Niall McNamee, had called for changing rooms to be opened for showers after games and training.

"From September 20th, dressing rooms may be used as changing facilities only before and after games but with a maximum occupancy of six people at any one time," the GAA said in a recent statement.

"Pre-game, or half-time team talks, should continue to take place outdoors and it is recommended that shower facilities are only used where absolutely necessary."

In the north, players have had access to changing rooms for the past couple of weeks.
