Dublin GAA footballers facing sanctions following Covid-19 regulation breach

Dublin’s GAA football team are facing punishment from Croke Park after several players were photographed training together in the presence of a coach.

It was reported that the group gathered before 7am on Wednesday at Innisfails GAA club on the northside of Dublin.

The collective session, in contravention of the Government’s Level 5 restrictions and the GAA’s own rules, came less than 24 hours after the GAA contacted every club and county, warning them that such transgressions could put the return to play in “serious jeopardy”.

Dublin GAA has made no comment as of yet.

Former GAA President Seán Kelly has called for Croke Park to issue a “formal sanction”.
