Connacht Club Championships begin around 13th November.
No incentive there to have your Co Final in September!
Then finish all Ireland later

Id agree. Holding out for championship so it runs end of August - middle of October is the smart play, and not just to marry the provincial calendar. Adult leagues should be wrapped up in full. Gets everyone back from holidays. Allows juvenile football/hurling to be wrapped up and not taking pitches / spectators / volunteers away. Good excuse to use the floodlit county grounds with stands over and again.
IF... one had a County Ground with floodlights........

I see lads going off to the states and that is another nail in the coffin for the Split Season...

Club and county lads can have a summer away if they are students, but it's not like entire panels are away off from their club. The majority of players want this. Lads can plan their lives and if they want to head away for a summer so be it!
It's not a reason to argue against ripping up a new system for the sake of a tiny minority of the minority.

Like very few of the arguements against hold up and the lads who are arguing often don't stand over them enough, or change their tunes or add an aul PS and go off on another tangent.

Like we will never be happy, but the players are the key ones here and they want it - so be it!

them mysterons are always killing me but im grand after a few days.sickenin aul dose all the same.

How so?

Lads have been heading stateside for as long as I can remember, this is not a new thing related to the split season.

Boys have been flat out for years going to the States to play, the pandemic curtailed that but I was over in 93 (partying, not playing) and it was full of GAA lads from Ballycastle to Dingle !

Lazy journo's like an angle to suit their own agenda

You have to love the ''Die Hard GAA Supporter'' who begrudges the Jamie Clarkes of this world wanting to have a life outside of the parrish and County, just because they are good footballers.

Feck, it's only football. And if nothing else it gives fringe players the chance to show their worth while the cream are away.

Holiday
Paid
Adventure
Possibilities
Young

There are so much more benefits to these times playing away, they last till when they get a proper job or meet their wife, after that its shoulder to the wheel at the club.

But journalists feel that because we finished up 7 weeks earlier the sky will fall in? And better still some believe it
