what will happen, the minor has no hope of being played now, so what will happen with the lads up to their last year in their age group?

I think this year's U20 footballers lost a year of minor due to the age change so they should get to play their championship.

The U20 championship can be played in 6/7 weeks maybe minor could go to straight knockout.

Maybe it could be an opportunity to go back to u18 and u21 permanently. A lot of people preferred it this way. I know the leaving cert is the problem with having minor at u18 but it might be worth it and it would also solve the problem caused by Covid 19.

That's a great idea and something everyone would get behind.

It really wouldnt
Keep things at the younger ages and you have less players who will be playing on more teams.
School exams etc are far more important then playing minor inter county.
The year younger at minor grade means players are less likely to be playing adult grades so will be playing less teams.

Yep too many kids asked to play multiple grades. I always though there should be a rule against playing more than one age grade per season

well definitly the u20 has to back to u21
they never factored in that lads are 18 or 19 doing leaving cert now
so there allready doing more harm by moving it to u20

It doesnt need to. Keep it at 20s as whatever age is in place you will have people doing school or college exams.
