One thought on “1927”
If London & New York return to play in Connacht championship in 2022 a 2 year delay for starters is expected for teams hosting in rotation. Meaning that games between Galway & New York, Roscommon & London that would have been played in 2020 will be played in 2022 instead. While in 2023 Mayo will play London & Roscommon for New York instead of 2021. Overseas travelling in GAA games will remain banned for the rest of 2021 a meeting to get back in 2022 will be fixed for October to November at the earliest when 2022 in planned. In 2024 a 1 year rob robin system between Sligo, Leitrim, London & New York will be aloud. In 2025 Mayo will host New York & Galway for London.
