The sooner we have one 4-5 month inter-county season that runs through the summer months the better.
That would kill the clubs though. It's bad enough trying to keep club teams going as it is but try telling your senior team that they have no games from April to August and you wouldn't be able to print the Aer Lingus boarding passes quickly enough.

If your correct about Donie and Timmons we could be in for a tough year . Attride a big loss out of a backline thatís in a transition period with new players like Robert Pigott, Paddy OSullivan etc

Intercounty season - April-July inclusive (4 months). Start training in January.
Club league season - April-July. No intercounty players. Start training whenever.
Club championship season - August, September, October.

Ah look, I know what you're aiming at. But league and All Ireland packed into 4 months ending in July? GPA wouldn't have it.
There's no real solution to the club v county issue. Greater minds than you and I cannot solve it. The April club month isn't the answer either.

It is completely natural and probably desirable that some lads move on. Quite a few of them have soldiered for years for the county, gave great service, but probably don't have the legs for it anymore. Our biggest challenge will be whether the quality coming through will be able to step up. This has been coming for years though. We are living off that 2007 U-21 team for 12 years now.

Let's not pretend everything is rosy here. The players invested in Sugrue and that investment was bearing fruit. The CB might be happy enough to hit Reset, but a lot of us, including some of the players, are still very unhappy about the whole affair.

So what would you suggest exactly?

Nothing. What happened happened. But harm was done and if players depart because of it, I would absolutely understand. It was hard enough for supporters to swallow. These lads worked closely with Sugrue and you can't just throw two good years down the drain. For all they and we know, Quirke could be a dud. It's not easy being asked to buy into new ideas when you were perfectly happy with what you had.
