WATCH: John Horan on GAA’s Roadmap Back to Action

The GAA has publish its ‘Safe Return to Gaelic Games’ document today which reveals the phased plan towards club and inter county championship fixtures in 2020.

The only caveat is that the government guidelines will say that it is safe to do so.

Although the Government’s announcement that organised outdoor exercise can return from Monday, the GAA is cautiously maintaining its 29 June date for a return to action.

The news will now afford Limerick GAA the opportunity to plan towards implementing a new championship structure for the hurling and football championships as well as re-drawing the groups.

It is expected that this will take place in the coming weeks to give clubs ample time to prepare.

At a virtual press conference, the Association launched a 15-page booklet outlining the road ahead.

The key points of this document are:

  1. Walkways on GAA pitches will open from Monday, 8 June
  2. Club gates will open on 29 June
  3. Juvenile and adult club championship games can commence from 31 July 
  4. Inter-county training to commence on 14 September
  5. The inter-county calendar will commence from 17 October
  6. A full fixture calendar will be published in August

The first phase of the Roadmap rolls out on 8 June, when GAA walking tracks may be used for recreational use in groups of four. 

No games or small group training will be permitted on GAA facilities at this stage and all clubroom facilities will remain closed.

Phase 3 commences from 29 June when all GAA pitches will open.
