The three leading Irish sporting bodies - FAI, GAA and IRFU - will meet again next week to make a decision on any 'safe return' for supporters to games.

They met on Friday to delve into their 'collaborative approach' on submitting a roadmap for  a safe return.

As it stands, sporting events and fixtures in the Republic of Ireland are taking place behind closed doors.

"It has been agreed that a further meeting will be held early next week, following the publication of the Government’s new roadmap for living with COVID-19," read a joint statement.

"This meeting will consider how the three governing bodies move forward together."
