(Oldest Posts First)

In the midst of the global crisis, what does the upcoming year hold for the GAA throughout the country, and for the club scene in Leitrim?

I'd say we are safe in Div3 for 2020 & that was the goal at the start of the year. Liatroim abu!

At senior level, Shield will have to be scrapped. We will be very lucky to get the league played before the championship, possibly a few games without county players. Hopefully championship will be unaffected, worst case it would have to go old school straight knockout.

On that note I would love to see the intercounty All Irelands to go straight knockout, would add a huge excitement even if only for the one freak year we are having.

Underage may need to scrap leagues too. Hopefully championships can be pushed back a little.

I would agree in regards the straight knockout... imagine the excitement of an inter county straight knockout! No seeding required!
The same could go for the club championship here at home... although it would bring great excitement, many clubs may not agree with such set up... but it is something that will be considered I'm sure

I see other counties are picking a best 15 but you can only use 1 Player from each club. I'll have a go

1. Martin McHugh (Aughnasheelin)
2. Dermot Renoylds (St.Marys)
3. John McKeown (Drumreilly)
4. Micheal McGuninness (Mohill)
5. Noel Moran (Allen Gaels)
6. Declan Darcy (Aughwillian)
7. Paddy Maguire (Manor)
8. Christy Carroll (Kiktubrid)
9. Seamus Quinn (Gortletteragh)
10. Liam Conlon (SOH)
11. Emylin Mulligan (Melvin Gaels)
12. Micheal Foley (Drumkeerin)
13. Ryan O Rourke (Fenagh)
14. Conor Beirne (Eslin)
15. Fintan McBrien (Aughvas)

It's a lot harder than I thought
No body from
Cloone
Carrigallen
Bornacoola
Glenfaren
Ballinaglera
Annaduff
Leitrim Gaels
Dromahair

Great idea this, I'm not sure of what changes I would make to that 15! Full of Leitrim legends of past and present. Colm O Reilly (SOH) is a man who could sneak in however. Only got to see him a handful of times, a true club warrior who never graced the inter county stage

Starting to look like there may not be a ball kicked at all at county or club level this year lads

Very very true. I doubt there will be even a ball available to kick.

I can't see GAA agreeing to games behind closed doors as there will be no gate receipts.
