Club action returns on July 17th

The GAA has revised its return to play plan with club football and hurling matches now able to resume from from July the 17th.

That’s two weeks earlier than originally planned.

Adult training at GAA venues can restart from this Wednesday (June 24th). Underage teams can go back training on club pitches from Saturday (June 27th).

The question now is whether the Donegal, Leitrim and Sligo county boards will move up their fixture lists accordingly.

Option 1 proposes playing a knockout championship with a shortened league campaign.
Option 2 proposes playing NO league football this year, and then have two groups of five in the senior championship, similar to lats year.
