The GAA are set to appeal to the Irish Government for another grant in order to run off the 2021 National League and All-Ireland Championships.

At a virtual press conference confirming the structure of the 2021 season yesterday, the GAA's Director of Player, Club and Games Administration, Feargal McGill, made it clear that the Association would make a fresh appeal to make up the shortfall experienced with spectators still unable to attend events.

"We will find a way, as we always have, of financing competitions," he said.
