The second All-Ireland Senior Football Championship semi-final between Tyrone and Kerry will now take place on Saturday August 28th.

The winners will progress to a final meeting with Mayo two weeks later on Saturday September 11th.

Following receipt of additional medical information from Tyrone GAA on their Covid cases and subsequent deliberations with the relevant parties on Sunday, the GAA confirmed the updated arrangements for the concluding stages of the 2021 football championship.

The GAA says the revised schedule has been finalised with the integrity of the championship in mind and to ensure that Kerry were not denied a semi-final outing.

"The GAA would like to acknowledge the co-operation of all of the counties still involved in the championship and it looks forward to working with the (Irish) government to finalise these arrangements," a statement read.

Tyrone have welcomed the development:

In the League of Ireland on Sunday, Derry City beat Dundalk 1-0 at the Brandywell.

Jamie McGonigle scored from the spot.

Cliftonville had a 4-1 victory over local rivals Crusaders in the Danske Women's Premiership.

The Reds are now just one point behind leaders Glentoran.
