The SSE Airtricity League Premier Division fixture between Galway United and Derry City, scheduled for Saturday, March 25th has also been postponed, following the earlier postponement of the Derry City and Limerick match.

The EA SPORTS Cup First Round fixtures were set to be played tomorrow night but will now be rescheduled following the sudden passing of City captain McBride.

New dates and times for the fixtures in due course.

In Pool 2, Finn Harps were due to play Cockhill Celtic tomorrow while Galway Untied were due to meet the Mayo League. Derry City and Sligo Rovers got a bye in this pool.
