Talks were held today with the vested parties and will continue over the coming days.
Cork City and Cobh Ramblers, and their underage teams, along with Cork City's Women's squad are cleared to return to training from next Monday under strict guidelines.
However, the formats of the competitions have yet to be decided.
Derry City, Dundalk, Shamrock Rovers and Bohemians, as the four clubs who qualified for Europe, are already back but waiting on details from the FAI on the next step.
League of Ireland clubs are heavily reliant on gate receipts to generate revenue and many are concerned about the merits of restarting the Premier and First Divisions behind closed doors.
A brief statement from the FAI read:
"The Football Association of Ireland today held a productive meeting with the 19 SSE Airtricity League clubs to discuss the return to action for the League.
"Talks will continue over the weekend. The FAI will make no further comment until these talks are concluded."
