All weekend's hurling and football league games called off

All weekend's hurling and football league games called off

The fifth round of the football competition will take place on March 10 and 11, meaning the O'Byrne Cup final between Meath and Westmeath, which was due to take place that weekend, may not now take place.

Croke Park had initially stated they would make a call on the weekend's games on Friday, but the severity of the weather saw them push forward that decision.

Ospreys trip to Conference A's bottom side Zebre has also been delayed after the Welsh side were unable to offer assurances that their flight to Italy would go ahead as planned.

Details about the rescheduled date will be confirmed as soon as possible.

In the National Hurling League Division 2B, Derry had been scheduled to play away to Wicklow.


The Division 1 Allianz Hurling League Quarter finals will now move to the weekend of 17 and 18 March, the semi-finals to the weekend of 24 and 25 March and the Allianz Hurling League final to 31 March.

The GAA have taken the decision to postpone all 33 of their Allianz Football and Hurling League games scheduled for this weekend due to Storm Emma.

Round 5 of the Allianz Hurling League will now take place next weekend (March 10th/11th). This game has already been re-fixed for Monday, March 19.

All games in the National Ladies Football League have also been postponed, including Clare's Division Two tie against Armagh.

Any exceptions to the above will be addressed in the revised fixture programme to be issued by GAA headquarters on Monday.
