GAA president Liam O'Neill has confirmed that a decision will be taken at Saturday week's Central Council meeting on whether the interprovincial series will be held in 2013.

A discussion group will present six suggestions on how to re-capture public interest in the series.

The 2012 interprovincials took place in February, while back in 2007 Croke Park hosted the finals that were played in October. As of now, no date has been decided as to when next year's matches will take place.

Speaking ahead of next week's meeting, O'Neill said: "We asked those in favour of its continuation to devise something that people might support and that's now up for discussion. It's (future) is not guaranteed, but it has not gone either.

"If everyone who said they wanted the competition to continue actually went to the games, we'd have thousands at the games."
