It’s August. Liam MacCarthy will winter in Limerick, Sam Maguire has gone to Kerry, Meath are the ladies’ football champions and by next weekend either Kilkenny or Cork will be camogie queens. The sky hasn’t fallen in. The sun still sets and rises, children still wear their favourite GAA jersey.

Listening to some of the most well-known GAA pundits in recent weeks decrying the new calendar, you’d be forgiven for thinking the world was going to stop turning. The GAA season changed enormously this year, in an effort to allow more fair play to the thousands of GAA members.
