Government ministers have backed the Tánaiste’s claim that level-5 restrictions would mark the end of the All-Ireland Championships.
Leo Varadkar claimed yesterday that imposing the highest level restrictions would apply to inter-county matches. Outling that he did not think it would be feasible.
This was at odds with a clarification made by the Chief Medical Officer Tony Holohan to Health Minister Stephen Donnelly last week.
Public expenditure minister Michael McGrath backed the Tanaiste’s statement last night.
