Cliftonville star Conor McMenamin has urged the Irish FA to make sure families will be allowed into Windsor Park to see the Irish Cup Final.

The showpiece is normally the biggest game of the season played in front of thousands of fans, including the players' families, but only a limited attendance may be possible at the National Football Stadium on July 31 due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Backroom staff and club officials will join the players at Windsor Park for the semi-finals on Monday, July 27 but no spectators will be able to watch Ballymena United face Coleraine and Glentoran take on Cliftonville.
