The Ladies Gaelic Football Higher Education Committee has suspend this weekend's Gourmet Food Parlour Giles Cup due to the the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
The committee released the following statement on the annual competition which was scheduled for Kerry this weekend:
"Due to the higher than average cases confirmed from the regions of the competing colleges, and the need to limit the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Ladies Gaelic Football Higher Education Committee has had to suspend the 2020 Gourmet Food Parlour Giles Cup, scheduled for Kerry this weekend, until further notice.
"This has not been an easy decision and we have taken every possible advice from official authorities but our inability to be able to facilitate these Giles Cup games in a controlled manner is just a risk too great for us to take.
"We understand that this decision will result in disappointment, especially amongst players and their backroom teams, especially when we are close to concluding this particular championship stages.
"However, the decision which is taken in the best interests of everyone and we hope that this is understood particularly at this difficult time of uncertainly.
"The remaining five championships will continue with strict precautions in place from arrival to and from venues along with strict dressing room and feeding policy’s in place.
"NUI Galway were due to take on DCU Dóchas Éireann 2, and Mary Immaculate College Limerick were due to face Maynooth University in the semi-finals on Friday, with the final on Saturday; but these games will now be rescheduled for a future date TBC.
