The answer is simple. Dublin should become a province - it has the population size for it. Then they could decide how to structure their provincial competition - e.g. i) split Dublin into the 4 administrative Co Cos that are already in place, ii) North/South split, iii) keep it as one county and twiddle their thumbs until the other provincial competitions are completed.
That would allow the Leinster championship to be a competition again.
Totally agree ive been saying it for year . one of the real plus points is all Dubs can then all weigh in behind the winning 'county' and be late and Obnoxious  for their games

It is disappointing that dubs matches all start on time isn't it. In the good auld days you could be enjoying your pre match pints in Meaghers in the sunshine safe in the knowledge throw in would be delayed by 15 min if you wanted one for the road.

Alas, like the Celtic tiger, that era has gone and is unlikely to return so dubs matches actually start at their designated times now

I think leave things as they are. Some team sooner or later will catch Dublin out on a bad day in the Leinster or the All Ireland  championship. It may take 5 or so years but the wait will be worth it. It probably wont happen for a while after that again, but teams will have got inspired and that will keep them going for a while. In the meantime if Covid has gone the GAA can look for handouts from the Government to cover the costs from a lack of interest from Advertisers, former paying Punters and the TV companies.
