Donegal GAA have confirmed one positive Covid-19 case from the round of coronavirus tests that were carried out on the county senior football squad on their return to collective training.

Inter-county teams have started back training this week after a six month lay-off ahead of the resumption of competitions next month.

"After a long hiatus, and in line with GAA guidelines, the Donegal Senior squad returned to collective training this week. All of the squad were tested for Covid-19 and one of the squad has had a positive result," Donegal GAA said on its website this afternoon.

"These are difficult and trying times for all in the GAA and the wider community. CLG Dhún na nGall urge all club members, particularly players at all age levels, to adhere to the guidelines which have been set out and can be found on the Wellness tab on our website."
