All-Ireland Championship

  • The majority of inter-county Footballers are now in favour of a tiered All Ireland Championship.

    That is the finding of the latest survey by the Gaelic Players Association.

    Division four teams unanimously voted to boycott a proposed 'B' championship in 2016.

    The G-P-A say almost 60 per cent of the members now support splitting the tournament.

    They also found that there is a growing prevalence of hip and groin injuries, and that three quarters of inter county players feel the off season is too short.
