Return to Play 2021 - 07/05/2021

We were all delighted to see the return of kids to pitches all over the country on the 26th April.

The long anticipated wait for adult return is now over and we will see the lads return to the green fields of Ballinacarriga from Monday night the 10th May.

We cannot wait to see the pitch full of activity once again.

There are a few important steps for players and mentors to follow before returning to play.

Please see the very important information below.

For Players

For Mentors

Please note that only players and mentors of the team are the only people allowed to attend training session.

Please take note of the following message from Croke Park 

Adult Return to Training and Games (26 Counties only):

A reminder that from this Monday, May 10th, outdoor training is permitted at adult level in pods of a maximum of 15 people (including coaches) in the 26 Counties. 

However, games are not allowed, and indoor facilities must remain closed (exception: toilet facilities).


From June 7th, and subject to the Public Health situation at the time, club games will be permitted at all levels but must be played “behind closed doors”.


In the interim, we would remind all Clubs in the 26 Counties of the following:

  • Until May 10th, only training for underage club teams (non-contact and in pods of 15) is permitted. “Underage club teams” means any registered team at U-18 level or below.
  • All indoor facilities must remain closed (exception: toilet facilities).
  • Fundraising events on GAA/LGFA property are not currently permitted.
  • Gym facilities must remain closed (exception: Adult Inter-County players may use their relevant Club Gym for individual training as long as they are following the advice in the Inter-County Return to Training and Play document)


Fundraising Events Outdoor fundraising events on GAA/LGFA property are not currently permitted in either jurisdiction. This includes drive in events (such as Drive in Bingo or Drive in Movies).  We await further clarification from governments and will provide a further update when available.
