The GAA have postponed the meeting of Galway and New York in the Connacht Senior Football Championship, due to uncertainty surrounding coronavirus.
The curtain-raiser to the All-Ireland series was due to take place in New York City on May 3, but a new date is now being considered.
A statement from the GAA read: “The future for this fixture will be considered at a later date and in the context of the anticipated overall re-drawing of the national fixtures calendar for 2020 as necessitated by the ongoing disruption to the GAA games programme.”
The GAA has already suspended all club and county fixtures until March 29 due to the threat of Covid-19.
GAA Director General Tom Ryan re-assured members that: “when activity re-commences we will provide an adequate games schedule for all our players at all ages and grades”.
The Tribesmen last made the transatlantic trip in 2015 where they defeated the hosts 2-18 to 0-8.
