Monaghan star Conor McManus feels that none of the current government guidelines in place are going to hinder inter-county teams when games start back next month.

Teams across the country went back to training this week after a six-month lay-off and McManus feels that the use of dressing rooms at this stage is “a fairly basic requirement”.

"None of them are going to hinder us majorly," he told Sky Sports’ Inside The Game.

"Obviously the big one is dressing rooms and showers and things like that, particularly at the time of year we're coming into. You're coming off a training field, and the weather is not good, the first thing you do is jump into a shower and get yourself freshened up. And that's the big thing.

"We've been restricted by the amount of sessions we can have per week, you're allowed have three sessions per week. Obviously panels have been cut to 32.

“But I think the biggest ones are the use of dressing rooms, and if we can get used to dressing rooms, which I think is a fairly basic requirement, a lot of other things will look after themselves."
