CMO pours cold water on Croke Park attendances
Chief Medical Officer Tony Holohan has dampened expectations of a half-full Croke Park at some stage this year.
The All Ireland championships are set for a mid-October start, and GAA president John Horan says they’re hopeful of allowing crowds into matches.
Horan said that Croke Park could hold 21,000 if current social distancing measures stay in place, or 42,000 if it’s reduced to a metre.
But the Chief Medical Officer says it’s too soon to talk about attendances of such a scale.
