With club grounds remaining closed and auxiliary premises staying shut, the pinch is beginning to be felt in the most ambitious clubs in Ulster.
Dunloy Cúchullains, Antrim hurling champions in 2019, have one of the most impressive set-ups of any club in Ulster with not only a fully-kitted out gym that accepts membership from the public, but a building that houses their academy programme with an indoor 3G pitch allowing for continuous training all year round.
They also have a clubhouse on the premises and pay affiliation fees to the GAA for their football and hurling teams as well as the Camogie Association for camogie activities.
In recent times, they have also completed a 4G pitch - funded entirely within the community with the establishment of a '300 Club' after grants were denied - but with the onset of Covid-19, all means of income have stopped.
All clubs are currently trying to figure out a way through this extensive period of inactivity, but some have it harder than others, as explained by club treasurer Gary Brogan.
"Our fees, when you take all into consideration, the club pay £20,000 a year," he states. "That's fees and insurance and all put together. Everything has been paid that needs to be paid and the most important thing gets paid first.
"From last year's accounts, to Antrim county board we paid approximately £9,000. We paid camogie fees, north Antrim and south west Antrim boards, injury claims, things like that. It doesn't take long before it adds up to a lot."
With such an enormous outlet, Dunloy have a number of initiatives in place to help draw in finance. From 2006, they have had the 'Club Dunloy' initiative in place where club members can pledge a monthly set fee to help them meet their costs.
However, because of the values of their rates, they fall just outside a government savings scheme.
"The thing that is disappointing for us as a club, is the government brought out a scheme to help all clubs if you are rated between £15,000 and £50,000. Our club's rated at £52,000 and we don't get anything," Brogan explains.
"There is nothing for the higher scale. We have good facilities and our rates are set at £52,000. On those rates, we get sports and recreation relief which brings it away down, but because we have more premises, our rates are higher. It feels as though we are penalised for having good facilities."
The only grant they received from government sources during this crisis was a one-off payment of £1,500. To put that into context, their electricity bill for the last quarter was over £3,500. The water bill was £1,000.
"The academy, the club draw and the use of the gym have stopped. The club lotto has also stopped although there is some hope it can be resurrected this Tuesday as an online concern. It's only donations and sponsorship that is helping the club through this period," states Brogan.
"This year we have a new sponsor, DB Contracts, and we are into a three-year deal and the donation they have given us is helping us through this crisis, because really this is what we are in. Our grounds are completely closed," he adds.
"We are lucky in that very few people have cancelled any of their memberships or donations. We have to rely on the community. We wouldn't like to be relying on government for grants or help.
"But we have all our fees paid. In Antrim it's policy that if you don't have your fees paid, you aren't insured to enter the Championship. We are the county champions, I wouldn't like to tell anybody we are not in the county Championship this year because I didn't pay our fees!"
Dunloy's ambition in building an academy came with some stresses. They spent £1.2 million, again mostly raised within their community with no government funding. They have now reduced the debt to a manageable figure.
But other expenses don't stop.
"The repair work you just have to do, the maintenance, the grounds. On a rough year you might spend £10,000 and people wouldn't know where it goes," admits Brogan.
"If we were a small club, I think we would be in trouble. At the moment, I think we will be okay to see this through. It would have been great to get the £25,000 grant and maintain our facilities, but we miss out because our facilities are at the level they are."
