If necessity is the mother of invention, then clubs and county boards around the country are finding new ways of operating as they look to run their affairs and play off their championships in the most challenging of circumstances.
And in various guises, technology is providing solutions to the challenges the pandemic has thrown up.
The restrictions on numbers allowed into a match has created a demand for access to live streams. As it stands, a total of 200 are allowed into matches including players and backroom teams, leaving precious few tickets for supporters.
Even the predicted relaxing of restrictions to allow 500 into a game would fall well short of meeting demand for many club matches, meaning that streams - once well down the list of priorities - are now commonplace and even expected.
Over the last week, the likes of Cork, Westmeath, Tipperary, Waterford and others have announced that they will be streaming games through a variety of packages in a bid to meet the demand from people who can't get into matches.
The proliferation of streams came about after the GAA struck a deal allowing boards to stream matches the same time as TG4 and RTÉ.
That had previously been ruled out as it was thought competing games would dilute the rights holders' offerings.
On the pitch, managers have come up with different ways of helping their teams prepare.
Wicklow boss Davy Burke has fitted his players to wear GPS systems during their club activity so his staff can monitor the work they have done and tailor their training accordingly when they return on September 14.
"We'll send out our GPS readings, we'll get the data, we'll see how much they're doing.
"We need to know where they're at when they come back to us. Have they done 20km a week? Have they done 10km?
"Literally, it's purely based on load. It's all about knowing when they come back through the door here on September 14, what they've done and what they can't do."
Clubs have struggled too. Their main, and often only, source of income, their local lottery, ground to a halt with Covid.
And while things have slowly reopened, the lottery continues to struggle as the majority of pubs remain closed, forcing clubs to look for digital solutions.
Cavan-based company ClubSpot, run by John Hyland and who count former Irish rugby International Bernard Jackman as one of its investors, has been helping clubs move their lottos online.
"I was involved in a fundraiser in my own club," Hyland says. "We made 120k on a 'Strictly Come Dancing' night and I saw first hand the commercial power the clubs have.
"A lot of clubs are capable of doing these big €100,000 fundraisers, but where they are struggling is their recurrent revenues, their lotto, membership, maybe the Christmas draws and different bits like that.
"Counties maybe struggle to grow their supporters' clubs too. So I wanted to create something that gave value to members, grew engagement and saved time for administrators."
More recently, ClubSpot has also rolled out an e-ticketing solution for Cavan County Board, meaning that club championships in the Breffni county will be ticketed in the same way as major international events in Twickenham stadium.
"With our product you can buy a ticket in 30 seconds; we partnered with a company called Tixserve who do the digital ticketing for Twickenham," Hyland explains.
"That allowed us to give a proven sophisticated ticketing solution to Cavan County Board.
"If there's a club match in a small rural club in Cavan they are using the same system as Twickenham are now using.
"And because these guys have developed technology that allows you to turn your mobile phone into a scanner, there's no hardware or big up-front costs. So your stewards use their phone to scan a digital ticket and it provides a safe and contactless entry.
"So the closest you come to human contact now going into a match is to hold your ticket on your phone within six inches of the steward's phone so they can scan it.
"There's no Wi-Fi needed or mobile data needed, once you have bought the ticket it is stored on the app."
The app also allows ticket numbers to be capped and can be adapted to keep track of where patrons sit in bigger venues such as Kingspan Breffni.
"We can keep track of who has what ticket, when they scanned in and who was in the ground and at what time," Hyland adds.
"And we have a track and trace and contact details on everybody so if there is a Covid outbreak we can straight away contact everybody who was at the game."
"If it was in Breffni Park we can break it into sections; we can say who was in section three of the terrace or row 6 in the stand."
The pandemic has turned many things on its head, but in some ways at least, the application of new technologies are helping the GAA work through those issues.
