Covid-19 has made the GAA look very different.

Social distancing signage, hand sanitiser stations, players changing in the car boot, dressing rooms out of bounds, severely limited attendances - these are just some of the noteworthy changes we've seen around the grounds on the first weekend of competitive club matches following lockdown.

After last night's Wexford SHC opener at Chadwicks Wexford Park, the Inpho lads were at two matches from the Dublin SHC this evening, including the meeting of holders Cuala and Thomas Davis at Bray Emmets and St Vincent's home tie with St Oliver Plunkett's/Eoghan Ruadh.

It was rather unusual to see a Dublin championship clash played in Wicklow, and what's more, a piebald pony waiting for a rub down from the physio!
