Gaelic Grounds to be used as coronavirus testing centre

LIMERICK have joined Croke Park in offering up their facilities as a testing centre to help deal with the coronavirus.

The LIT Gaelic Grounds will now be used as somewhere for tests to be carried out with cars driving up to the Munster ground.

Footage this week showed the situation in Croke Park where an average of eight cars can arrive for tests every 15 minutes. The service is available seven days a week, 12 hours a day for those who gain referrals from GPs.

“Limerick GAA would like to confirm that LIT Gaelic Grounds is set to be used as a drive-thru testing centre for Covid-19,” Limerick GAA said in a statement.

“We at Limerick GAA have also offered the HSE the use of our other facilities if needed as we all come together during this Covid 19 crisis.”
