Five more members of the Antrim senior hurling squad have tested positive for Covid-19.
One player returned a positive test on Tuesday, leading to the entire squad then being tested.
On Wednesday evening, Croke Park facilitated ‘rapid-testing’ on the entire squad.
As a result, four more players and one member of the backroom staff have tested positive. Another player is also self-isolating having been identified as a close contact.
Antrim are scheduled to play Westmeath in the Joe McDonagh Cup in Belfast on Sunday.
The Saffrons intend to fulfil the fixture, but with a depleted squad.
In a statement, the Antrim County Board said:
“We in Antrim have confidence in all panel members and we put our best foot forward on Sunday.”
