Pádraig Pearses’ Connacht club senior football championship semi-final against Mountbellew-Moylough, due to be played in Dr. Hyde Park on Sunday next, has been postponed.

The Roscommon Herald understands that the game has been deferred due to an outbreak of Covid-19 in the Mountbellew-Moylough panel. The match was scheduled to be broadcast live on TG4 with a 1.30 p.m. throw-in.

The Galway side, managed by former Roscommon manager Val Daly, were crowned county senior football champions for the first time since 1986 on Sunday week last before edging past Leitrim champions Ballinamore Seán O’Heslins last weekend.

Connacht GAA officials met this evening to discuss the situation, and it is expected that the provincial CCC will meet on Thursday evening to re-fix the game.
