Fermanagh GAA have halted all training in the county after a "number" of their senior football panel returned positive tests for COVID-19. 

Ryan McMenamin's Ernesiders are due to travel to Clare in Division Two of the Allianz Football League on Sunday week.

"In order to prevent any further spread of this virus, and to protect the health of all those involved and the wider community, all collective activities involving the county’s Senior Football, Senior Hurling and Minor Football panel are suspended until further notice," Fermanagh GAA announced in a statement.

"Our primary concern throughout this public health emergency has always been the health of our players, members and the wider community and it will remain so in the time ahead."

Fermanagh County Board added that all their outstanding club competitions, with the exception of the Junior Football Championship, won't be completed.

"The GAA, at a national level, has suspended all club games at this stage and Coiste Chontae Fhear Manach are asking all clubs to go one step further and to suspend all training at this time given the growing number of cases on COVID-19 in Fermanagh.

"We recognise the efforts and commitments made by so many players and members across all clubs over the course of this shortened season. 2020 has been a tough year for all of us and the limited amount of club activity that has taken place over the last four months provided a much-needed lift for so many people in our community."
