Since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic the government in the Republic and the Stormont Executive in tandem with the GAA authorities have given a cohesive lead in what has been an ongoing concerted bid to suppress the disease.

Maybe every decision that has been taken has not found favour with the public at large but, for the most part, the guidance and advice that they have been provided with has played no small part in helping to stem the spread of the illness.

Emerging from the lockdown was always going to pose its own problems, but when the decision was made to stage club matches behind closed doors here in the six counties it came as something of a bolt from the blue.
