FOLLOWING on from Killeshin GAA’s decsion to cease all activities for ten days, Arles Kilcruise have followed suit and suspend activities until further notice. Like Killeshin they too played a practice match against Carlow’s Old Leighlin, one of whoms players tested positive for coronavirus.

“As a precautionary measure, Arles Kilcruise is following HSE guidelines and postponing all GAA activity in our field until further notice,” the club said in a statement today.

“We have been made aware that some of our senior team players have been in contact with another GAA player who has since tested positive for Covid-19.

“All precautions are being taken in line with public health recommendations and we will only resume GAA activity in our field and that of our adult teams once it is considered safe to do so.

“We hope you can understand the difficulty of making this decision, but the safety of all players, families and wider community has to be our priority at the moment.”

Killeshin were due to play Ballylinan in the Kelly Cup semi-final on Saturday evening but that game has now been postponed.
