There'll be little or no league games for County or Club, #7inarow IC Championship to run into late summer then Club Championship might get launched but strong possibility of them all being Covid-19 disrupted if not abandoned entirely, welcome to 2021

We had heard on the grapevine here in Mayo that we would get a split league followed by championship.

Now that looks u likely. It could be a case of given 2/3 notice, training and then play championship only. I believe this year will be more disruptive than last.

100% agree and with a variety of levels of vaccination in the community people will be inclined to relax which means outbreak clusters will inevitably occur around gatherings especially sports.

The best case scenario would probably be that the national league will not take place and we go into the inter county c'ship which would be run off quickly, then we go back to the club. With many 2020 under age competitions not complete it more likely than not many of those c'ship won't be held this year.
Not until next year are we going to see the benefits of the vaccinations and even then it's hard to know when we're going to see any type of normality to sports as we know it.

Why on earth is that the best case scenario??

Because the worst case scenario would be no games at any level, with the benefit of hindsight if HQ had repeated the sequence of last year it would make more sense to have IC at the tail end of the year. Clubs will now have to play a reduced league without their county players and go straight into the Championship. IC League may get the same treatment if not get abandoned entirely, the covid numbers will decide that and as we've seen HQ always errs on side of extreme caution.
