On hold: GAA training sessions may not be able to resume on January 15 as planned

Counties who are flaunting the current GAA guidelines on collective training and trials are putting their own communities at risk, insists a prominent member of the GAA's Covid Advisory Group.

Stephen McGeehan, who is also the Ulster Council's Head of Operations, revealed to the Belfast Telegraph that another meeting of the Covid Group is due next Monday but Croke Park is expected to today confirm a minimum two-week delay to the initial January 15 date for a return to collective training for intercounty squads.

According to guidelines released by the GAA on New Year's Day: 'For the moment, Senior inter-county players may train on an individual basis only in Club or County owned gyms.'
