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.
