Uncertainty remains over Fermanagh’s last two best Alliance Division 2 football league matches following the serious outburst of Kovid-19 in the team.
RTÉ Sport reports that a significant number of players have tested positive for the virus.
The source added that the county has decided that the situation will be resolved long before the start of their Ulster Championship campaign but Kandi wants to fulfill its remaining matches and play all the competitive games.
The senior footballers will play Claire in the sixth round of the league on Sunday, October 18 at 1pm at Cusack Park in Enis.
They then play Laois in another game they must win. Their Ulster quarter-final against Dunn is on November 8th.
Meanwhile, the senior Hallers have Lori Meger games against Lot and Cavan in the next five weeks.
RTE Sport understands that the Fermanagh Board has been in constant contact with Croc Park since the situation came to light last Saturday. The explosion in the Fermanagh Squad was not related to GAA activity.
In the last seven days, 4,005 new cases have been reported in Northern Ireland.
The return of universities has led to an increase in cases, with 166 students and staff at Queen’s University reportedly testing positive for Kovid-19.
“We are waiting to find out what the situation is with the league games, but we or anyone else – we do not want or consider losing any fixtures,” officials said.
She said the board wants to play all the games but as far as the league is concerned they are at the bottom of the table and need to beat Claire and Laois.
They want to play with that furniture – but are not sure when it will be possible.
The source reiterated that discussions are underway with Croke Park to help us deal with this situation.
To the question of whether they consider this development a big ivory in the hope that the Inter-County Championships will go ahead, the response was that they would not think so.
They added that the weekly format would be difficult if there were cases within the continents, and that North and South lockdowns would be frightening at different times.
A statement from the county board confirmed that the county would suspend senior football and hurling panels as well as all other galley games in the county.
Fermanagh will wait for a decision in Stonemont tomorrow regarding the possibility of a lockdown.
