THE GAA will have an inter-county first campaign once the association resumes activity.
The GAA President, John Horan, says that a full programme of both club and county games is still possible.
GAA activity is currently ceased and there are no dates in play.
“There will be a programme of games for both our club and inter-county players once we get the green light from the Government that we can actually return,’ Horan said.
“It is a case of the numbers in the country and thankfully the numbers are going in the right direction – and once that continues will be back on the playing fields.
“The inter-county, obviously, will be the one that comes back first.
“If you look at it in terms of the governmental levels it’s always likely that the inter-county will be at a level above that of the club, one assumes then that that is the road we will go down.”
The GAA hierarchy is hoping that a new ‘Living With Covid’ plan – due to be issued this week – will enable them to give more clarity.
Horan said: “We always made it clear that there would be four-weeks notice, that is four weeks to train before any competition would begin.
“Our Covid committee will meet next week along with the GPA, the Camogie Association and the Ladies Association. We will make a clear decision then to give people an idea as to a future plan.
“We are conscious that people’s lives are on hold at the moment, that they want clarity and that they want a plan. We will give it as soon as we can.
“The one thing that we have learned out of this whole pandemic is that you have to be flexible in all your planning and ideas that you put together. We will have to remain that way.”
