I'd expect there will be no Club  Provincial or AIs.
Will be hard enough to have the County Championships held.
Say  the quarantine ends in July. I could see the All Ireland , in a modified form, going ahead.
And it would mean more to the people than any other all Ireland did.
It won't matter 26 or 28 Counties anyway unfirtunately :-\
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

Ladies league is now null and void, probably only a matter of time before the same happens with the NFL.

It looks that way, the precedent has been set. Meath and Mayo should  both escape the trapdoor by dint of a last minute reprieve from execution.

Maybe the reprieve for Meath isn't quite there yet.
It's a fairly optimistic viewpoint from the GAA here in terms of the time lines but I can see the logic in holding off on scrapping it as long as possible and using the two remaining league games as warm ups for the championship (if it is played at all this year). Bit much to ask teams to go into what will inevitably be a changed and straight knock-out championship format not having played a competitive match in months.

It's only two weeks effectively. They should finish off the league before any Championship starts.

I still see Championship as very unlikely this year.

Dublin one of the biggest losers if league is scrapped for the year. Not hard to know that journalist Conor McKeon is a Dub  ;D
