Croke Park is to host the Muslim celebration of Eid Al Adha later this month.

GAA Headquarters was chosen as it can facilitate for social distancing measures outdoors.

Other faith leaders and politicians have been invited to witness the celebration.

GAA President John Horan says "We are delighted to welcome members of the Muslim Community to Croke Park to mark Eid Al Adha, an important date in the Muslim calendar."

“I believe the staging of this celebration fully supports our commitment to inclusion and a GAA welcome linked to our belief that it’s ‘Where We All Belong’."

Chair of Irish Muslim Peace & Integration Council Shaykh Dr Umar Al-Qadri has welcomed the move from GAA HQ:

Shaykh Dr Umar Al-Qadri added "Irish Muslims have contributed significantly in many sectors across our country, especially the health sector."

“The choice of Croke Park as a venue for Eid ul Adha celebration will be symbolic to Irish Muslims in their ‘dual-identity’ as being both Irish and Muslim and the significance that Croke Park and the GAA have in Irish history."
