Could we see a Rugby style approach? Club and county be playing same weekend and clubs are without there county player or at least the county regulars.

Be tough on some clubs like Galbally and Pomeroy but I can't really see anyone being able to oppose whatever comes as these are unprecedented times.

Tyrone GAA Statement

In responding to the latest information from local governments and the World Health Organization, regarding Covid-19, Tyrone GAA is putting a number of measures in place in order to play our part in the efforts to support “social distancing” and help minimise the spread of the virus.

Events and meetings

All Tyrone GAA events and meetings will be postponed until the end of April 2020, at which point the situation will be reviewed.

The meeting of the County Committee which was scheduled to take place on April 7th has been cancelled.

Until the end of April 2020, Tyrone GAA staff will not be attending external meetings to which they have been invited. Many of our meetings will be moved online.

Access to Tyrone GAA Headquarters

Our offices, training facilities and pitches will remain closed to the public until further notice. Tyrone GAA will continue to support its clubs during these closures.

Advice for members

We advise our members to follow the guidance and advice issued by the statutory authorities. We also advise members to stay up to date with the latest official health and travel advice.

Key information sources include:

    www.who.int/coronavirus
    www.gov.uk/coronavirus
    www.nhs.uk/coronavirus
    https://www2.hse.ie/coronavirus

We understand that during this difficult time, more than ever, people will need support. We urge members, who are not in the “at risk” category and who can, without compromising either their own or anybody else’s safety, to help others that are less fortunate in their community.

Tyrone GAA is mindful that this is an unprecedented situation but hopefully our actions, along with those of many other organisations and businesses, will be practical and useful steps that will help to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.

As the situation will continue to change, check our website where we will be posting any updates.

Keep safe and best wishes from all at Tyrone GAA.

Micheal Mac Giolla Cheara (Cathaoirleach)

Could we see the league played out in the old style Frank O'Neill League cup formats? Would cut the amount of games to be played in half.
Groups of 4 (play each team once or home and away depending on when it starts up again) then quarter final, semi final and final.
Then championship after this?

I think you would be hard to get an argument about that format right now from anyone. We would all take it, if it was iron clad certainty.

I genuinely dont think there will be anything played this year from a club perspective.

The cash cow that is the county game will take priority over anything IF this bastard subsides over the next 6 months

tend to agree, if anything only a championship without relegation and promotion...
underage will be biggest hit... lads with no football could drop off..
its the knock on effect for clubs having a year of no activity, fund raising..the lifeblood of the community etc

will affiliation fees be wavered?

If left with a choice of playing no league games or playing them alongside county games surely club players would prefer to play. Even if it means finishing in a lower league position than usual. Only playing championship isnt an option. What would be the point training for potentially only 1 game. Play away...once this is over.

That’d have been a fine day for the opening game of the season too.
