Durrow Manager Steps Away From Offaly County Final Over Covid Fears

Offaly GAA have announced the match will go ahead this morning.

Durrow and Gracefield will contest the Offaly Senior B Football Final this afternoon but one will now do so without its manager. 

Just 14 hours before today's 1pm throw-in, Durrow boss Shane Curran announced he wouldn't be on the line in a series of tweets. 

The former Roscommon goalkeeper says the game going ahead is a blatant disregard of the health of players from both Durrow and their opponent's Gracefield. 

It comes after two positive covid-19 tests were returned in the club last week and Curran says test results of another close contact won't be confirmed until Monday.
