No GAA inter-county challenge games can take place until May 4th at the earliest.

The Department of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media has confirmed to the Irish Examiner that there is no exemption for such matches between senior teams until the next review of Covid-19 restrictions.

Ensuring the ban on challenge matches isn’t contravened will be another headache for Croke Park, which had sought clarity on the matter as counties had been hoping to arrange warm-up matches in the three and four-week hurling and football windows ahead of the Allianz Leagues.
