Inclement weather conditions around the country seriously disrupted the GAA's fixture programme over the weekend

The Dr McKenna Cup (SF) final between Cavan and Tyrone, fixed for Brewster Park, Enniskillen on Saturday night, became the first victim and was followed yesterday by three more postponements.

The Tipperary v University of Limerick Waterford Crystal (SH) semi-final was called off due to an unplayable pitch in Nenagh yesterday.

The All-Ireland club semi-finals between Keel (Kerry) and Fuerty (Roscommon) in junior football and between Youghal (Cork) and Kilnadeema/Leitrim (Galway) in intermediate hurling were also postponed due to poor conditions in Limerick's Gaelic Grounds.

The McKenna Cup will be played on either Wednesday, February 12 or Saturday, February 15. Announcements on the other re-fixtures will be made today.

The Leinster Council announced last night that the Dublin v Kilkenny Walsh Cup (SH) final will be played in Croke Park on Saturday at 5.0 as a curtain-raiser to the Dublin v Kerry Allianz FL game at 7.0
