‘I could see after 10 minutes, a lot of the players were gasping’ – how Covid-19 impacts GAA teams

As manager of this year’s Galway U-20 hurlers, Jeff Lynskey wouldn’t normally be asked his opinion on an All-Ireland senior football semi-final. But these are not normal times.

You’ll go into that thinking the energy and the adrenaline and the crowd will carry them over,” says Lynskey. “But you will see, after about 10 or 12 minutes, who has Covid and who has not. You can spot it straight away, from an energy point of view.”

He was speaking from very recent experience: on Wednesday of last week, his charges were overwhelmed by Cork, 4-19 to 2-14, in their All-Ireland final in Thurles. He has since stepped down.
