GAA split-season sanctioned
A new-look GAA calendar of county and club football and hurling action will officially feature from January 2022.
The motion for a split-season in the GAA was passed at the annual Congress today.
The GAA season will from next year feature inter-county action up to the 29th Sunday of the year and that end date can vary depending on what day is the 1st January annually.
Broadly it means that inter-county action will conclude by mid-to-late July and then club action will feature for the remainder of the year.
The All-Ireland senior football and hurling finals will take place on or before the 29th Sunday of the year.
It was also ratified that the All-Ireland JFC will feature New York, KIlkenny and the British JFC finalists playing two semi-finals and a final annualy over a specific weekend.
