Eugene McGee: GAA must show real will to solve fixtures problem

IT'S terrible that one of the top games of the Gaelic football season has to be played within one week of Christmas Day -- and in conditions that are not only unsuitable for good football but also add to the risk of injury.

Yesterday's Leinster club senior football championship final was thankfully completed without problems and using O'Connor Park in Tullamore was a big factor in that outcome.

The fact that we had a super game of very competitive football and that Garrycastle made history in such dramatic fashion should not be used by officials as justification for playing a Leinster final on December 18.
