GAA Club Championships To Begin From July 31

The GAA have announced that Club competitions will run from July 31st to Sunday October 11th with inter-county competition resuming after October 17th.

The GAA, An Cumann Camogaíochta and the LGFA have today published a plan for a safe return to Gaelic games for the three organisations.

Juvenile and Youth competitions are proposed to take place between between July 31st To Mid-October.

Adult competitions (involving county players) to take place from July 31st to Sunday October 11th. Inter-county competitions to take place no sooner than October 17th.

Some of the stand-out elements of the report include:

  • A gradual return to on-field non-contact activity in Phase Three of the Government plan in small groups.
  • The need for an online education programme and new measures around temperature checking and completed documentation before training and games.
  • A return to contact sport on July 20.
  • Provisional windows for club activity and the return of inter-county training and competitions.

The document mirrors the Government roadmap and outlines the opt-in approach of the wider Gaelic games family regarding a possible return to activity and play.

It is being distributed to all units today with a view to providing them with time to put in place the necessary arrangements to facilitate a return to activity.
