It’s reported that the CCCC have turned down a Fermanagh request to postpone Sunday’s National Football League game with Clare. 

Ryan McMenamin has seen ten members of his panel test positive for COVID-19, while seven others are close contacts. 

However, the game in Ennis is still due to go ahead as planned despite protestations from the Erne County. 

McMenamin had told OTB Sports earlier this week, "If they want to go on ahead more or less in the league without us, that will be the integrity of the league gone."

"To me, I think the GAA has got to act quickly and postpone it. We can draw a line under it then and tell the boys how we plan going forward."

Fermanagh are due to play Laois in the final round of Division 2 fixtures the week after the Clare game, before an Ulster quarter-final with Down in early November.

McMenamin warned of the negative mental impact the infections have had on his Fermanagh panel, "There's a lot of blame about with this Covid situation and you have to feel sorry for those players who have contracted the virus. They didn't contract intentionally.

"I've already got a few messages on WhatsApp from lads who are worrying that this was all because of them. So, you do have to think of their mental health when all of this stuff is being paraded around the country.
