A second-tier All-Ireland football championship won't be on the agenda "for the foreseeable future", according to the Gaelic Players' Association (GPA).

That's despite comments by GAA director-general Páraic Duffy that "there are compelling arguments in favour of developing a tiered football championship".

GPA chairman Seamus Hickey said that the proposal last year for a secondary football championship featuring Division 4 counties had been rejected out of hand by the players.

"We had the Tommy Murphy Cup some years ago, which was fairly inconsequential too," said Hickey, who will be a key figure in the Limerick hurling team again this year.

"Other than getting a cup, there was nothing in it for the winners.

"Success wasn't rewarded in any other way. We always listen to the players but as of now there's no appetite among footballers for a second-tier championship."
