“From June 7, competitive and challenge games at all levels of club and inter-county are permitted to take place," a GAA circular read. "However, it is essential that we continue to proceed with caution and that the return-to-play protocols continue to be followed.

“In terms of attendances, 100 spectators will be permitted to attend GAA games (club and inter-county) in the 26 counties from Monday, June 7.

“This number is in addition to players, team personnel, stewards or media attendees. 

"Where a ground has a minimum accredited capacity of 5,000, a maximum of 200 spectators can attend.

“It is likely that from July 5, up to 200 spectators may be permitted to attend games, and up to 500 may be permitted in grounds with a minimum capacity of 5,000.

“However, this will depend on progress in broader society – if these increases are to be permitted, we will advise in advance of July 5.”
