Tyrone-Kerry game postponed and All-Ireland final moved back a week

August 09, 2021

Croke Park

The GAA’s CCCC has today confirmed that Sunday’s GAA Football semi-final meeting of Kerry and Tyrone at Croke Park will not take place as originally scheduled and will now be played on Saturday August 21 at the same venue.

This decision was taken following a status report received by the GAA relating to positive Covid cases in the Tyrone panel.  

This change will necessitate the GAA Football All-Ireland final being re-arranged to take place on Saturday September 4.  

The GAA Football U20 final meeting of Offaly and Roscommon will proceed as planned at Croke Park ‚Äčat 1.30pm on Sunday with the same permitted attendance.  

The GAA will continue to liaise with the appropriate Government Departments and officials to discuss the practicalities of having these revised fixtures included under the statutory instrument that has facilitated the increased attendances of recent weeks.  

The GAA will also be working with the LGFA around the TG4 Ladies All Ireland Junior final scheduled for Croke Park on September 4.
