‘Club GAA Could Return In Summer And Intercounty In November’


Longford GAA county board secretary Peter O’Reilly is optimistic that both club and county action will return before the end of the year.

Debate over the possibility of staging both intercounty and club level Gaelic football and hurling in 2020 has been rife as the GAA looks to make a safe comeback.

CPA (Club Players Association) chairman Micheal Briody has pushed for the return of the club game first due to it’s smaller scale, and O’Reilly is hopeful that it could happen before autumn arrives.

‘The next two weeks are critical in terms of the gentle re-opening that is taking place and if that passes by without going askew, I think the club scene could restart sometime in the late summer and we might have the intercounty championship in November.’
