Former Waterford hurling manager Paraic Fanning says he’s excited by what future seasons in the GAA may look like from here on out.

Speaking on the RTÉ GAA podcast, Fanning feels that the Association has an ideal opportunity in these unprecedented times to tackle its long-standing fixture issues and come up with a more “condensed season”.

"I'm delighted to see the GPA come with something to the table," he said.

"I’ve been consistent in that I do feel there needs to be club activity in the summer and there also needs the room for inter-county players room to breathe.

"The condensed season is very possible.

"It’s exciting to hear people talk of blank canvasses and it’s a huge opportunity now for the GAA to do something really positive for the entire GAA population, club and county and that could lead to the association prospering even further."
