An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar revealed on RTE's Late Late Show on Friday that this year's All-Ireland finals could go ahead without any fans present.

Following the announcement of the Government's five-phase plan to reduce Covid-19 restrictions, Mr Varadkar spoke to Ryan Tubridy on Friday night on the way forward for the country amid the coronavirus crisis.

The GAA received a boost late on Friday night when Mr Varadkar told Tubridy: "There is a possibility of an All-Ireland played behind closed doors this year."

The news will no doubt be welcomed in GAA circles with many countenancing the possibility that no All-Ireland Championships would take place in 2020.
