This week has been a big backwards step for sport in the South of Ireland as a new wave of restrictions were imposed to curb the threat of a second wave of Coronavirus.
Meanwhile the 2020 Irish Open, which just a week ago was moved from Mount Juliet in the South of Ireland to Galgorm Castle in the North, ostensibly to avoid the South's quarantine rules for overseas players coming to compete, has received another blow with reports in the Belfast Telegraph
and RTE News that staff at the venue have tested positive for Covid-19.
The county Antrim hotel, where players and staff will be staying, was lauded in July as one of the UK's first hospitality businesses to secure the AA marque assessing it against stringent Covid-specific health and safety criteria.
It us understood that two staff members have tested positive for Covid-19 and are asymptomatic and self quarantining in their homes.
The only good news is with the event scheduled to begin on September 24th there is time to get things right.
