The GAA have confirmed the throw-in times for the two outstanding fixtures on the inter-county football calendar – Kerry v Tyrone and the All-Ireland final.
The second All-Ireland semi-final will start at 3.30 pm on Saturday, August 28 at Croke Park and the winners of the tie will face Mayo in the All-Ireland final at 5 pm on Saturday, September 11.
The fixtures were delayed for a second time after Tyrone announced they could not fulfil their upcoming fixture on Saturday, August 21 after a Covid outbreak in the camp.
The Covid outbreak in the setup has caused the county to play without some players in the Ulster Senior Football Championship final against Monaghan.
Their semi-final was originally intended to be played on the same weekend as Mayo’s victory over the defending champions Dublin.
The GAA say the revised schedule has been finalised with the integrity of the championship in mind and to ensure that Kerry were not denied a semi-final outing.
Tyrone’s county board have welcomed the decision made by the CCCC to postpone their fixture for a second time.
