GAA inter-county panels will be allowed to bring all their players to the stadium for the All Ireland finals in December.

Under GAA matchday regulations drawn up for the COVID-19 affected championship, the only players who can gain entry for a game are the 26-players confirmed on the matchday panel.

Limerick manager John Kiely said after the All Ireland semi-final win over Galway on Sunday, that it would be "an absolute travesty" if the extended panel members in the Limerick and Waterford squad could not attend the All-Ireland final on December 13th.

Government minister Niall Collins, a Limerick native, also said the full panel should be in attendance.

It now appears that All Ireland finalists will have their full panels in attendance as Ireland prepares to ease coronavirus restrictions this week.

Minister of State for Sport and the Gaeltacht Jack Chambers has given the competing counties the green light.

That means that the four All Ireland Football semi-finalists will be allowed to have a full panel in attendance at Croke Park this weekend.
