Storm Ewan claimed its first victim over the weekend when the all-Ulster affair yesterday was postponed.

The rescheduled game on Sunday week will take place in Healy Park at 2pm.

Several grounds survived late pitch inspections as the storm battered the country, with heavy rain putting a number of games in danger of being called off.

In the end the clash at Healy Park was the only game to be postponed. Referee David Gough made the call after walking the pitch at 1.30pm – just an hour before throw-in.

It was a call that could have been made far earlier in the day with supporters in mind.

Surface water covered significant portions of the field and the Cavan squad were left to wait on the waterlogged field before the referee’s eventual arrival.
