Last Updated: 23/06/20 8:57pm
The Camogie Association have confirmed that the All-Ireland Championship will take place between October and December, while the 2020 National League has been abandoned.
Party to the GAA return-to-play roadmap, Camogie will similarly open with club games.
This is ahead of a resumption of intercounty action in October, with the All-Ireland finals taking place in December. The exact formats and dates are yet to be confirmed, but there will be a round-robin stage before the knockout rounds. There will be promotion and relegation this year.
The 2020 National League and All-Ireland Minor Championship are among the tournaments to be scrapped.
