The All-Ireland SFC semi-final between Tyrone and Kerry has been postponed due to an outbreak of Covid-19 within the Tyrone team.

The fixture was set to take place this Sunday in Croke Park, but has been rescheduled for Saturday August 21st.


Dublin are to play Mayo this Sunday in the other semi-final.

The All-Ireland football final will now take place on Saturday, 4th September.

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

Tyrone GAA confirmed last week that a number of players were self-isolating and awaiting test results.
