The GAA has released the dates for the conclusions of their underage championships.
The only title that will be decided this side of the new year will be the EirGrid All Ireland Football Championship.
News of the GAA's revised underage calendar comes barely 24-hours after the FAI informed stakeholders that they would not be allowed resume underage soccer this weekend.
A move to level-3 restrictions across the country has allowed elite underage GAA to resume, but not soccer.
The FAI say they've been forced to cancel games on government advice, but there's been no clarification from the government as to why GAA can resume and soccer cannot.
