From Laois to London and Cavan to Antrim: Our GAA pitches are snowed under

There was some snow overnight.

The heavy snow forced a host of GAA games all over the country and further beyond into postponement on Sunday.

Pitches are snow-veiled from Cavan to Antrim and from Laois to London, and when you see the pictures, it leaves you with no wonder as to how all of these games are falling victim.

O'Moore Park, Portlaoise.

The Leinster senior football final between St. Loman's and Moorefield has been postponed until next Sunday, 17 December as a result of the snow.

McGovern Park, Ruislip.

Few pitches, in Britain, in Ireland or anywhere were covered with as much snow as the London grounds. The All-Ireland quarter-final between Corofin and Fulham Irish was never going to go ahead under those conditions.

It is now expected to be rescheduled for some date in January in the new year.

It made for quite a picturesque setting in London.

Especially for those dreaming of a white Christmas.

The John Deere will save us.

Breffni Park, Cavan.

The Cavan county grounds didn't escape, either, with the county's under-21 games being forced into postponement.

Naomh Eanna, Antrim.

There was no stopping the men of Antrim from having their game of football on Saturday, however. Volunteers put all hands on deck to clear the pitch for the Gerry Devlin memorial tournament.

The Downs, Westmeath.

Nor did it stop the Westmeath minors.
