Lots of people have taken to Twitter to express their views on all elements of the GAA's roadmap to return...
Jesus if there was temp checks before Monday nights ‘ run it out of u sessions’ back in the day a lot of lads would have been sent home at the gate 😅— Anthony Daly (@DaloAnto) June 5, 2020
Great to see this but have reservations about what’s going to happen with club teams when intercounty training restarts in Sept & month of championship still to play. No fun getting ready for semi or final and no county players to be seen. Focus on club surely the way to go #GAA https://t.co/xNfIGy7Bpa— Scott Brady (@scottbrady21) June 5, 2020
There's a lot of people wondering why pitches aren't open on Monday. Please read the document fully on the GAA website and you'll see why. Clubs can't be expected to have safety procedures ready by Monday.— Shane Brophy (@BrophShane) June 5, 2020
Just had a quick glance at the GAA's roadmap to return of action. Where is the sense in playing inter county games this year in October? Scrap it for this year and let club players have their time...— Brendan Boylan (@BrendanBoylan) June 5, 2020
On the return to play, the people I’m truly happy for are all the GAA coaches out there who can once again charge clubs a fortune for their inferior services. Lots of home improvements over the lockdown to be paid for.— Eamon Mc Gee (@EamonMcGee) June 5, 2020
Got to page 7 of the return to GAA Covid protocol. My head is spinning and that is less than half way.— Tomás Colton (@TomasColton) June 5, 2020
Some stuff there for an amateur group to even think about doing.
Maybe it is time to cancel 2020
So GAA the return to play solution is counties to play k/out C’ship(1 game for 98% of its members)-then move on to inter county.Hope counties can offer more than that to Club players.Need for income aside and pandemic or not I would expect better treatment /respect to Clubs #gaa— Paraic Fanning (@Paraic_Fanning) June 5, 2020
Huge amount of ppl screaming for GAA clubs to open pitches over the past few weeks & indeed even unhappy now that it's still 3 weeks away. I presume they'll all be volunteering their services as Covid Supervisors as major volume of additional work now associated with training— Morgan O'Callaghan (@MorgantheBriar) June 6, 2020
And now a GAA championship in 2020, too.— Roy Curtis (@RoyCurtis68) June 5, 2020
October throw in at county level.
Clubs ahead of that.
The iron curtain of misery is pulled down.
A pint and a bowl of stew to celebrate on 29th of June.
A good news day
Once in a while Carlsberg DO do Fridays.#Phase2
The GAA returning has made my day! If supporters are permitted I’ll be there freezing in the stand! Otherwise, I hope Buff Egan is allowed to go to provide us with some updates 👌🙌 #GAA #reopeningIreland #covid19 #club— Aoife (@Aoife95Aoife) June 5, 2020
This is naive but what do "big" counties do for @officialgaa club fixtures?— Sean Geeney (@LeftLost_Pltcs) June 6, 2020
Are there no midweek games or they only have local ones?
Are there regional leagues within a county?
Growing up in Castlebellingham in Louth, furthest club in county was probably max 30 mins away https://t.co/RRcV5aUKor
Sorry but for me the idea of having the Championship in October/November is absolute nonsense and nothing more than an effort by the GAA to get a few quid into the coffers. Having playable pitches will be an issue & nobody wants early games in an empty Croke Park either!— Alan Flatley (@alflats11) June 5, 2020
As GAA clubs return we have exclusive access to the recommended training schedule:— Mallow News (@MallowNews) June 6, 2020
10 metre light jog
10 minute vape break
Kick pass drill
Just reading the GAA roadmap for a return to activity... jaysus, god help the volunteers, they have a huge amount of work ahead of them...— Fergal Lynch (@truefergallynch) June 5, 2020
There's a huge opportunity to reward GAA clubs for positive role they continue to play in community during this crisis. By playing a club championship only this year every single playing member would get a large no of meaningful championship games rather than possibly 1#tokenism— Kieran Fitzgerald (@corofinabu1) June 5, 2020
