GAA fixtures nightmare

MUNSTER GAA chiefs are facing a fixtures nightmare following the postponement of three club championship games yesterday.

And provincial bosses admit that the games may not be played before Christmas as weather conditions continue to worsen.

The IHC Final between Bishopstown (Cork) and Clooney-Quin (Clare); the JHC Final featuring Killworth (Cork) and Knockshegowna (Tipperary) and the IFC semi-final pairing of Mullinahone (Tipperary) and Ardfert (Kerry) all fell victim to the weather yesterday. Saturday’s Munster JFC semi-final between Portroe (Tipperary) and Adrigole (Cork) was also postponed due to a bereavement. That game is rearranged for Sunday in Toomevara, 2pm.

Munster Council officials will meet later tonight to decide their course of action. A spokesman said that no decision was taken yesterday with regards when that day’s postponed fixtures will be played. He said: “All options have to be looked at, and that means considering the long-range weather forecasts and the like.”
