GAA Hoping Cabinet Meeting Will Give Better Idea of Return to Play

The GAA President John Horan was talking to RTE about hopefully getting back on the pitch asap for everyone involved in the GAA

“The GAA have an appetite to go back, of course,” he said.

“Everybody within the GAA family would love to be back playing games and training in the morning but look, we’ve always acted with safety and responsibility as the key tenets of our decision-making process and that will remain and that’s why we’re not in any rush to come back at the moment because we don’t feel it’s safe or responsible.

“The virus is too virulent throughout society. The numbers are still too high and we’re not going to put our members or their families at risk in making any decisions like that in the short term.”

The GAA was deemed non elite in the latest level 5 lockdowns, a tough one to take for everyone in this country when you look at the good job the GAA did at running a Championship during the winter months.
