A return date for GAA activity is unknown and will not be confirmed until a road map for a return to sport has been announced by Government under its Living With Covid plan.
The earliest return to training for inter county teams is now Easter (4 April) at the earliest, which means that fixtures are unlikely until later that month or May.
The news is a blow to the inter county scene, which had been gearing itself for a return to games at the end of March.
Two return dates for collective training (15 January and 5 March) have now been changed on the inter county plan which is pushing the playing season back all the time. There is an inevitable knock-on effect for the club season and as of now nothing is definite about what the 2021 season will look like in terms of dates.
