PCR testing carried out earlier today of the Ireland men’s squad and management team has produced no positive Covid results.
The player in question and an identified close contact were immediately isolated from the remainder of the group when the issue arose and lateral flow and PCR testing of the entire squad and management was carried out.
The individual who produced a positive test has subsequently had two PCR tests at two separate labs, returning negative results on both.
The player and the identified close contact have been cleared by public health and the tournament organisers to take their places in the match day squad.
The Ireland squad will line out on Saturday afternoon as named earlier this week.
