Former Tipperary Senior Hurling goalkeeper Ken Hogan says it’s paramount that the club championships is played this year.
In recent days, a straight knockout format has been mooted in GAA circles for the Inter County Competitions.
Hogan told Tipp FM’s Jamie O’Flaherty that it could mean the All-Ireland club finals are once again played on March 17th:
“We’ve also got to think of the bigger picture – the grassroots situation of the club championship. And that goes for underage as well as at senior level because, I think it’s paramount that the club championship be played and September and October were the dedicated months for that.
“Now we have a scenario where you could eventually end up going back to the status quo, in that the All-Ireland club finals could be back on St Patrick’s Day next year.”
