The GAA has confirmed that 100 fans will be allowed to attend matches in the Republic of Ireland from next Monday.

In grounds with a capacity in excess of 5,000, that number rises to 200 and the association say they hope to permit 500 supporters at games next month.

It follows 500 fans going through the turnstiles at last weekend's matches in the Allianz Football League which were staged in Ulster and the GAA outlined their plans in an update to their members this morning.

"In terms of attendances, 100 spectators will be permitted to attend GAA games (club and inter county) in the 26 Counties from Monday, June 7th. This number is in addition to players, team personnel, stewards or media attendees.

"Where a ground has a minimum accredited capacity of 5,000, a maximum of 200 spectators can attend.

"It is likely that from July 5th, up to 200 spectators may be permitted to attend games, and up to 500 may be permitted in grounds with a minimum capacity of 5,000. However this will depend on progress in broader society – if these increases are to be permitted, we will advise in advance of July 5th."

Dressing rooms will remain closed for club fixtures while the GAA has advised that club-run gyms should remain shut in a bid to minimise the risk of a coronavirus outbreak.
