LEITRIM GAA CLUB Kiltubrid has suspended all activities for 48 hours as a Covid-19 precautionary measure.

The O’Rourke county outfit confirmed the news on social media late last night, after a member of both the GAA and LGFA club was identified as a close contact of an individual who tested positive for the virus.

And the temporary suspension came into force from last night.

“As a precautionary measure, all activity within Kiltubrid GAA and LGFA at both underage and adult levels has been suspended,” a statement reads.

“This is due to one member of both clubs today being identified as a close contact of an individual who has tested positive for Covid-19.

“We will update all club members of any developments of the above over the next 48 hours.

The Kiltubrid men’s footballers retained their intermediate championship status at the weekend after a relegation final, while the ladies team — home of Fremantle Aussie Rules player Áine Tighe — won their most recent outing, beating St Brigid’s on a scoreline of 3-16 to 0-3.

The side’s U12 ladies football final was also postponed yesterday.
