GAA cancel all Allianz League hurling and football fixtures this weekend

The GAA have taken the decision early to cancel all Allianz League football and hurling fixtures.

Weather is worsening and this is an expected decision from the GAA. Offaly GAA had already called off all local fixtures.

The possibility of pitches being playable is hugely unlikely and personal safety of the public is paramount to the decisions.

Storm Emma will hit Ireland in the coming hours and will dump heavy snowfall on Offaly and the country as a whole overnight on Thursday. A Status Red warning is in place for all of Ireland.
