The Toughest Season

Eaten the right food. Rested when rest was needed. Got the sports psych in. A few guest sessions by a few supercoaches that turned out no better than your own man.

At this stage its an even keel, just about. Losing the All Ireland Final is a gut wrenching, sickening, heartsore feeling. And that’s only for the supporters. Imagine how a player must feel. The dust’s starting to settle now. But it’s a long winter for the men from the Hills.

Tuesday, Sep 16 2014, 10:27AM

All Ireland week can be a difficult time. All that pressure. Getting the jerseys sorted. Logistics, planning, leaving time, what time everyone is meeting at. And tickets. Always tickets. God knows what it must be like being a player. Supporting a team in the All Ireland final is exhausting. You’re looking at least a couple of days off next week to recover win, lose or draw.
