The Michael Walsh Intermediate League meeting of Louisburgh and Balla didn’t go ahead yesterday evening due to concerns related to a confirmed case of Covid-19 in the Louisburgh area.
Louisburgh confirmed this news in a statement last night after Balla GAA issued a statement earlier in the day.
“Louisburgh GAA acknowledges that we acted in an overly cautious way going beyond protocols with the best interests at heart of the two clubs: Louisburgh and Balla. Unfortunately, this resulted in the game not being played.”
“On learning of a confirmed case of COVID in the Louisburgh region, we acted with extreme caution. We wish the patient a speedy recovery. We will be following the protocols in place set down by the HSE and the GAA going forward as we navigate these challenging times.”
The club added they have suspended activities to allow time for necessary actions regarding contact tracing to conclude.
“We look forward to progressing with fixtures for the community and getting back to normal activity in the coming days working with the GAA community,” the statement concluded.
