Colm O'Rourke

  • Former Meath footballer Colm O'Rourke has expressed his belief that GAA pitches could be opened in a 'controlled manner'.

    GAA president John Horan said two weeks ago that the return of gaelic games was unlikely while social distancing to help stop the spread of coronavirus is in place.

    O'Rourke is hopeful that the advice Horan is due to receive from his Covid-19 medical advisory group may change his views.

    He also believes that clubs should be allowed to start opening up facilities for its younger members with restrictions in place.
