Meath GAA have applied to Croke Park for an exemption in order to play four hurling finals next weekend behind closed doors.

 

GAA bosses moved earlier this week to bring down the curtain on the club season when they ordered no more games could be played.

 

This came in the wake of crowds who attended finals, including the Meath SFC decider, failing to adhere to social distancing, and a number of gatherings at post match celebrations as well.

 

However Meath PRO, Ciaran Flynn, told LMFM earlier, ‘ The timing of this decision is unfortunate in respect of our hurling finals, and actually we are sending an email in to central Council asking for an exemption to play these games.

‘This is part of the regulations sent out by government that it is allowed to play senior finals behind closed doors, we want to finish our games, the junior, junior2, intermediate and senior competitions in a safe manner, it is imperative we play the games.’
