The dust has settled on another season. An extraordinary one that we would be better off not seeing again, even though the GAA did well to get all bar one game played.

I am always a bit reluctant to talk up the massive contribution that the GAA makes to communities and, indeed, the public mood, as I am very conscious that when a million and a half people are watching the All-Ireland final, or some other big game, there are at least twice that number who have either little or no interest in the GAA. Yet for all that the last couple of months have been all the easier, and a good bit more tolerable, for a lot of people by having games to look forward to every weekend.
