The announcement from the Government on Thursday evening surrounding further easing of restrictions is a major breakthrough for the adult, non-elite athlete.
Adult team training will be allowed return on May 10 meaning GAA club teams, soccer clubs, rugby and so on will be able to re-commence training.
While it's not expected to be back to normal straight away, it is a massive step forward.
Underage teams were allowed back to train this week in a non-contact format and the adult, non-elite return will follow down that path.
Club games are on the table to return from Monday June 7, meaning that the GAA could start club leagues for underage and adult teams that week.
Gyms and swimming pools will reopen on June 7.
