Fraher Field in Dungarvan is the latest GAA ground to be utilised at a Covid-19 drive-thru test centre.
Croke Park, Páirc Uí Chaoimh, LIT Gaelic Grounds, and UPMC Nowlan Park have already been established as coronavirus testing facilities, with the Cork venue the largest in the State – processing up to 1,000 people each day.
The tests are conducted by appointment only, with tests arranged by GP referral.
