Tyrone vs Kerry and All-Ireland final postponed after Covid-19 outbreak in Ulster champions’ panel
9th August 2021

The All-Ireland Senior Football Championship semi-final between Tyrone and Kerry has been postponed, due to a Covid-19 outbreak in the Ulster champions’ panel.

The match will now be played on Saturday, August 21, one day before the All-Ireland Hurling Championship final.

It also means that the All-Ireland final has been moved back six days, from Sunday August 29 to Saturday September 4.

Dublin vs Mayo in the first semi-final this weekend remains unaffected.

“This decision was taken following a status report received by the GAA relating to positive Covid cases in the Tyrone panel,” read a GAA statement.

“The GAA Football U20 final meeting of Offaly and Roscommon will proceed as planned at Croke Park ​at 1.30pm on Sunday with the same permitted attendance [of 24,000].

“The GAA will continue to liaise with the appropriate Government Departments and officials to discuss the practicalities of having these revised fixtures included under the statutory instrument that has facilitated the increased attendances of recent weeks.”
