The three major sporting bodies in Ireland are seeking a set of protocols to allow fans back into stadiums.

The GAA, FAI and IRFU have formed a working group, which is chaired by Aviva Stadium director Martin Murphy.

From today, stadiums of 5-thousand or larger can allow crowds of 200.

Smaller grounds will be able to admit 100 people while indoor events will be limited to 50.

It means 200 will be allowed into this weekend's Donegal Championship games at the O'Donnell Park in Letterkenny and also into the Donegal Football Finals they following weekend if they are played at MacCumhaill Park or the O'Donnell Park.

Finn Harps will be allowed the same for their upcoming homes games that included a huge releagtion battle with Cork City.
