The GAA will not bring forward the September 14th date for inter-county teams to resume collective training and has called upon clubs to report county teams that breach that sanction.
At a chairpersons conference call yesterday, led by president John Horan and director general Tom Ryan, county board chiefs were told that the return to training date for collective inter-county training would not be changed, regardless of whether players exit their club championship before that date.
Croke Park officials held the conference call to discuss the ongoing dilemma of some county teams already resuming group or pod training.
Anecdotal evidence has suggested that several inter-county teams are already back in some form of training.
There were reports that some clubs are already finding it difficult to access their inter-county players who are back preparing for a championship that doesn't begin until late October at the earliest.
