The GAA says the revised schedule has been finalised with the integrity of the championship in mind and to ensure that Kerry were not denied a semi-final outing.
"The GAA would like to acknowledge the co-operation of all of the counties still involved in the championship and it looks forward to working with the (Irish) government to finalise these arrangements," a statement read.
