You know we are reaching the end of the lockdown when athletic assists are on the agenda.

There are a number of test events in the works, including concerts, matches and races that will be tested during June and July.

Attendance at a host of sports, including GAA, rugby, soccer, and horse racing, will come back into play as we move into the summer months.

Many of the planned test events will take place in Dublin over the next several weeks.

Here’s a rundown of the games fans will be able to return to:


There is a Rainbow Cup / Guinness Pro 16 home game taking place in June with a small number of spectators.

Leinster v Dragons on June 11 at RDS will be the first to have fans in attendance.

In July, Ireland plays host to Japan and the United States on July 3 and 10, respectively, and fans may be present at the Aviva for these matches.

Horse racing

At the end of June, the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby Festival will take place in Curragh, with some spectators allowed in attendance.
