GAA ‘hopeful’ for a return to club training for adults in May

The GAA are ‘hopeful’ that adult club players will be permitted to return to training in May.

All club activity has been suspended at adult level since October 2020 – seven months ago.

In the April edition of the GAA’s monthly newsletter, they outlined how they feel the club shutdown may end next month.

They said: “There is no fixed date on when adult club training can resume but it is hoped that this might follow soon after some time in May if government permits.”

Club training in Northern Ireland can resume on April 12 but no definitive timeline has been given to clubs down south yet.

Inter-county training has been permitted to resume on April 19 with non-contact juvenile training allowed from April 26.

The Camogie Association and the GAA, for both hurling and football, are set to confirm their fixture schedules for 2021 in the coming days.

It appears as if there will be some sort of national league action in May with a championship following afterwards.

In Laois, the issue many of the 2020 club championships still remains unresolved.

Those games must be completed before the 2021 championships will proceed.
