An announcement is expected this evening (Friday) as the Government are currently meeting to discuss what the best options are. Under the current rules which was set out in the GAA Guidelines, Safe Return to Gaelic Games Document, contact training is not permitted until July 20th at the earliest. However, with these current reports this is now going to be pushed forward.

Under that roadmap club championship games cannot resume until July 31st at the earliest, this includes juvenile and adult games. In addition to this, inter-county training won’t be permitted until September 13th. This is to allow for the club championships to be played and completed.
