THE show is over for now.

The Irish Government have banned all sports from taking place until at least April 19, meaning racing behind closed doors is no more.

The latest measures in the face of the coronavirus pandemic will come into affect from midnight tonight as the situation worsens in both Britain and Ireland.

Clonmel was the last meeting to be held on Tuesday, with strict social distancing guidelines put in place, but Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has decided now is the time to pull the plug.

It means the Irish Grand National will need to be rescheduled if it is to be run this season.

Racing in Britain was suspended from last Wednesday, with no action anticipated before May 1 at the earliest.
