The GAA in Ulster is hoping to benefit from what could yet prove to be a timely shot in the arm today when the Stormont Executive convenes to discuss existing Covid-19 restrictions.

Ulster Council officials are optimistic that the Executive will make fresh provision for the return of supporters to the ongoing series of All-County Club League and Championship games which comprise the current playing agenda.

It is understood that representations have been made to the Executive in relation to potential attendances at games and there is an expectation that these may be considered in a favourable light.
