GAA inter-county senior teams are to resume collective training from April 19, with a return to competitive action just around the corner.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin this evening addressed the nation on the new Covid-19 restrictions which are to come into place over next month, confirming the Allianz Leagues will start some time in May.

In further good news for the GAA, the government will permit underage non-contact training in pods of up to 15 on April 26.

However, there has been no update on when inter-county U20 and minor sides can return to play.

"From 19th April, some additional high performance training will be permitted, including senior inter-county GAA training to facilitate national league competitions, starting in May; as well as training for certain high performing athletes approved by Sport Ireland in a range of other sports," Martin said in a live address at government buildings.

"From April 26th, outdoor sports training for under 18s can begin again, golf and outdoor tennis can be played."
