Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly said he was “concerned” at footage of large crowds congregating after the All-Ireland Hurling Final.
However, he said there will be no changes for the upcoming All-Ireland Football Semi-Final and Final.
Donnelly spoke with RTE’s Morning Ireland and said: “I was concerned at some of the footage I saw after the event.
“What I would say is that for anybody who was with socialising after the event, who may feel they were in a higher risk environment, that people were too close to each other for too long, the advice is to go and get a PCR test, centres are open from all over the country… it was just give people that peace of mind,” Donnelly said.
Given the concerns Donnelly raised, he was asked whether there will be any changes to the upcoming football final.
He replied: “I will be very surprised if there are any changes, given how soon those events are happening.”
The National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) is meeting today to discuss the further plans for reopening society, which will be announced next Tuesday.
