STORM DENNIS HAS caused havoc with today’s planned GAA fixtures list with games postponed around the country.

The hurling league schedule has been impacted along with the Dr Harty Cup final in Munster and U20 football matches in Connacht, Leinster and Ulster.

Allianz Hurling League

The hurlers of Limerick and Waterford will face off tomorrow in a provisional fixture after tonight’s Division 1 Group A game was postponed at LIT Gaelic Grounds.

A pitch inspection will take place in the morning with the game planned to throw-in at 2pm.

At the moment the Division 1 Group B tie between Carlow and Dublin is going ahead at 5pm after passing an early pitch inspection but another will take place at Netwatch Cullen Park when the referee arrives.

Tomorrow’s Division 2A clash featuring Offaly and Antrim has been called off.

Dr Harty Cup

Earlier this morning the Dr Harty Cup final between CBC Cork and St Flannan’s College, Ennis was called off due to an orange weather alert.

The decider was scheduled to take place in Mallow today at 12pm after the original 1pm throw-in time was brought forward on Friday morning.

A pitch inspection was carried out earlier today at 8.30am and the green light was given to proceed with the final.

But a late decision was taken to postpone the game with a re-fixture planned for Saturday 29 February at 1pm in Mallow.

U20 Football

There have been plenty provincial U20 football ties called off this afternoon, all of which was due to start at 2pm.

In Connacht the semi-final between Leitrim and Galway was postponed, even after a venue change from Carrick-on-Shannon to Mohill.

In Leinster the quarter-final clash involving Laois and Westmeath will not take place while all four Ulster quarter-final were postponed.
