THE CEREMONIES FOR the 2021 GAA-GPA and camogie All-Star awards have been cancelled due to the current Covid-19 situation.

The GAA-GPA event was scheduled for Friday, 10 December at Dublin’s Convention Centre. 

Organisers say an awards programme will instead be broadcast on RTÉ from 7pm on the same evening. 

“This decision has been taken with health and safety in mind,” reads a statement, with organisers citing “the ongoing challenges with Covid” for the cancellation.

The camogie All-Star awards ceremony was due to take place next Friday, 26 November at the Osprey Hotel in Naas.

“While we appreciate the disappointment of all who were planning to attend, this decision has been taken with the health and safety of all in mind,” said Alan Malone, the Camogie Association’s operations co-ordinator.
