The Allianz Division 4 Football League clash between Tipperary and London remains scheduled for Saturday night, while some of the division’s other games are postponed to Saturday.
The GAA’s Central Competition Controls Committee will confirm the final round of league games. Wexford and Carlow have been confirmed for Saturday at 1pm during Cavan’s game against Waterford is a throw-in at 6 p.m.
All teams in the division were given the opportunity to bring their games forward to Saturday to align with the Tipperary/London game originally scheduled for that evening due to flight schedules.
However, Sligo and Leitrim, who are most directly affected by the outcome of the game in Thurles, remain fixed at Markievicz Park for Sunday.
The lack of coordination between matches on the final day has raised integrity concerns, but London’s planning has always been heavily dependent on flight availability.
Meanwhile, Connacht GAA is confident that the Mayo/Galway Championship Quarterfinals will be held at MacHale Park on April 24th.
The Castlebar venue is currently closed for redevelopment, but Provincial Secretary John Prenty expressed confidence that the pitch will be ready in about five weeks. Mayo play their three league home games at different venues – this weekend they host Kildare at Carrick-on-Shannon.
Some doubts were expressed however, Prenty said the game would need to be moved to a different location This growth should be enough to play until April 24th.
