Former All Ireland Footballer Wants GAA Pitches To Reopen 

Facilities are closed until July 20th.

Limerick hurler Shane Dowling says safety has to take precedence over money when it comes to returning to the field.

The GAA could be left with a 50-million euro hole in their finances if this year’s championships fail to materialise.

But Dowling’s believes the only thing that matters right now is public health.

Meanwhile, Cork's former All Ireland football winner, Colm O'Neill, would like to see GAA pitches reopen. 

Facilities are closed until July 20th, but the Ballyclough clubman does believe it would be safe for the gates to be unlocked.
