Ireland Lights Up 2021 Postponed

The GAA received communication from Sport Ireland who in consultation with the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht and Sport, have requested the postponement of the Ireland Lights Up walking initiative until the start of February (dependant on the Government guidelines at that time). We were informed that this late change of position was prompted by the continued escalation of the pandemic here in Ireland.
