Muslims sacrifice sheep on first day of Eid”

Indonesian Muslims, wearing face masks and getting temperature checks as a precaution against the novel coronavirus, performed morning prayers today to celebrate the festival of Eid al-Adha in mosques with reduced capacity as well as on the streets.

GAA President John Horan said the staging of the proceedings at the stadium shows the association's commitment to inclusion.
