Tipperary Senior Hurlers will “restrict their movements” over the next two weeks amidst the coronavirus outbreak after their return from a warm-weather training camp in Spain.

The panel flew out to Spain on Monday and stayed in private accommodation before returning to Ireland on Friday.

Spain declared a state of emergency on Friday after a surge in infections over the last few days with the country currently one of the worst affected in Europe.

They are set to enter a lockdown situation from Monday for two weeks, according to reports.

On Thursday, the GAA suspended all activity until March 29th amidst the outbreak which has also seen the FAI and the IRFU forced to put a halt to their respective sports in Ireland.

Tipperary GAA released the following statement on Saturday outlining that all members of their travelling party would be complying with the requirements and advice given by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the HSE.
