The Monaghan GAA Senior Football manager has been suspended after it emerged the team held a group training session last month.
Manager Séamus McEnaney has this afternoon been handed a 12-week suspension.
In a statement, Monaghan GAA has acknowledged the breach of COVID-19 regulations by the team.
It said McEnaney had admitted that holding the session was a “serious error of judgment” and had apologised unreservedly.
“The County Management Committee has suspended the Monaghan GAA Senior Football manager, Seamus McEnaney for 12 weeks with immediate effect and will fully cooperate and comply with any Croke Park investigation,” it said.
The Irish Independent reports that the training session took place on the last weekend in March.
Senior players will officially be permitted to return to training on April 19th, under the latest Government roadmap announced on Tuesday.
Shortly after it was announced, The GAA warned all senior county teams that any pre-mature return to training could put the return to play “in serious jeopardy.”
