Golf and tennis clubs across the region have re-opened today with thousands of people enjoying sporting pastimes as well as heritage sites and petting farms in the region.

Just a handful of people have tested positive out of an estimated 300 swabs which were taken at a special pop-up centre that was established in Drumshanbo across last weekend.
