A leading Irish disease expert believes that on the country’s current track there will be no inter-county GAA season this year, warning that the number of cases of Covid-19 will continue to rebound if restrictions on sports ease.
UCC Professor Gerry Killeen, the college’s Research Chair in Applied Pathogen Ecology, was asked what he thought about the current prospects for completing the All Ireland Championships in 2020.
Killeen responded, “safely, I would say zero.”
The GAA set out a plan to hold the GAA inter-county championships in the Autum/Winter of this year. However, with the current trend of Covid-19 in Ireland, this plan is in jeopardy.
