On 'The Sunday Game' last week, highlights of Wicklow's only game in the 2015 Leinster Championship lasted two minutes and 14 seconds. On the same show, we got 42 minutes and one second of highlights and analysis of two games that had been shown live on the same station just hours before.

Next week, on an even busier week on the GAA fixture list, Wicklow will go to Armagh in the Qualifiers, get even less time on 'The Sunday Game', and, most likely, their summer will be over.

Other than the few who managed to travel to two away games, what Wicklow fan will actually know how they performed this year?
