The GAA have contacted county boards, urging them to be "ready to move quickly" with regards to club fixtures, as they step up preparations in the event that the Association is given the go-ahead to stage matches this year.

While Croke Park chiefs stressed that there would be no return to action until they had been given the all-clear by Government and other relevant authorities, they advised that counties should currently be preparing a range of different options should their clubs be allowed to return to action at any point this year.

Last week, a hastily-convened Special Congress saw significant powers transferred to the GAA's management committee, which will allow them to make quicker decisions with regards to the make-up of their competitions.
