The GAA fixtures calendar has been dealt another blow with matches rescheduled for today being called off.

Numerous matches in the Allianz Football and Hurling League fell victim to the weather yesterday with some being rescheduled for today.

But it has been confirmed that four rearranged matches due to take place today have been called off.

The matches called off today are:

Allianz FL Division 2 round 6

Louth v Meath, Gaelic Grounds

Allianz FL Division 4 round 6

Wicklow v Limerick, Aughrim

Waterford v Leitrim, Ardmore

Allianz HL Division 2A final

Westmeath v Carlow, Portlaoise


The Allianz Hurling League final will have to be delayed by a further week to April 7/8 following the postponement of the Wexford-Galway  and Dublin-Tipperary quarter-finals.

Called off yesterday due to snow, it was hoped to play them today but, with no improvement in the weather, they were called off again last night and will now be played next weekend, with details finalised at some stage on Monday.

The other two quarter-finals (Offaly v Kilkenny and Limerick v Clare) have been re-fixed for today but are subject to early pitch inspections. That also applies to the five football games that were re-fixed for this afternoon.



Division 1 Quarter-Finals

Offaly v Kilkenny, Bord na Móna O’Connor Park, 1.30pm

Limerick v Clare, Gaelic Grounds, 4pm


Division 3

Offaly v Sligo, Bord na Móna O’Connor Park, 3.15pm


Meanwhile, a number of games in the SSE Airtricity League and EA SPORTS Cup have been postponed.

In the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division, Bray Wanderers' clash with Waterford is called off along with St Patrick's Athletic's game against Sligo Rovers.

In the SSE Airtricity League First Divison, Wexford's game with UCD has been postponed, following a pitch inspection in Ferrycarrig Park.

In the EA SPORTS Cup, St Mochta's were due to take on Drogheda United but that game will now be played on another date.

All four games will be rescheduled in due course.

The remaining four games in the SSE Airtricity League Premier and First Divisions, and EA Sports Cup go ahead as planned on Monday.
