The Connacht final may have to be played in Croke Park this year to keep with social distancing guidelines.

That’s according to the secretary of the Connacht GAA Council John Prenty, who thinks the two meter rule would make all Connacht venue ineligible to hold the provincial showpiece.

The Connacht GAA official has described the possibility of moving a final to Croke Park as a ‘novel idea’ as 20,000 people could safely attend the clash.

The Ballyhaunis man says time will tell the capability of venues in the province hosting games with attendances while social distancing rules remain in place, due to their largely terraced nature.

The Connacht Secretary told Midwest Sport that the safety of using terraced spaces for match goers hasn’t been adequately answered by health authorities yet.
