Brian Cody remains in favour of the All-Ireland finals being brought forward but admits it would only form part of the solution.
A motion to move the All-Ireland finals forward by two weeks was rejected by Congress last month after it failed to get sufficient support from delegates.
It has been claimed that the change in dates would benefit clubs by freeing up more time for fixtures, but Cody believes several measures are needed to address the congested GAA calendar.
"I think it's a question that needs to be looked at. I said it at the time and I also said I didn't have a solution to it," Cody is quoted as saying in the Irish Examiner. "I was asked if I would have a problem with the All-Ireland finals being brought forward and I said I certainly wouldn't have a problem with it.
"But I don't think they can look at it in isolation, I think you need to look at the whole inter-county and club calendar. You can't just solve the club calendar by moving the All-Ireland forward by two weeks.
"I would have had no problem with them doing it of course, it would have helped, but I don't think it is just the actual solution to it - moving a match two weeks ahead.
"It needs to be looked at as a package together, club and inter-county. I still feel very, very differently that it is something that does have to be addressed."
