GAA clubs in the north of Ireland look set to get a head start on teams in the Republic when it comes to returning to action.
The GAA’s Covid Advisory Group has cleared the way for adult and underage teams to begin training again from the 12th of April after the Northern Ireland executive confirmed non-contact outdoor training could resume.
The training will be conducted in pods of 15 or less and only training will be permitted in Northern Ireland at this point, with no games or competitive activity allowed at present.
Last week, the Northern Ireland Executive gave permission for non-contact training for groups of 15 for outdoor sports.
Inter-county teams in the north have clearance to train from the authorities at present but not the GAA.
However, restrictions in the Republic of Ireland mean it will likely be at least another month before GAA teams in the south can return to action.
