LISTEN: Gearoid Hegarty “The past few months they’ve been hectic, there’s no point in saying they haven’t”

This year the GAA brought in a plan to leave the month of April free for club games in both the Hurling and Gaelic Football codes. The measure meant the season would become shorter and give greater certainty to clubs around planning for their respective county championships.

Not a bad idea in theory. However, on the flip side, county players would be playing most weekends affording little time for recovery and not addressing the issue of potential player burnout. Throw in a few snow storms to knock the schedule out of kilter and you already have administrators playing catch up.

Limerick hurler Gearoid Hegarty has had a busy year being involved with UL’s Fitzgibbon winning side as well as John Kiely’s county side. Speaking at the launch of the Limerick Senior Football Championship the St Patricks clubman admitted that it had been a hectic few months.

“The way the season has gone now with the April being blocked off for the clubs it’s going to be interesting.

“ForGear. The fact that the snow and the storm is after pushing the league back another week, so if we beat Tipp on Saturday we’re on for another week so there’s going to be disruptions.

“Time will tell, it’s definitely not going to be easy but I’m playing more matches than training so on my behalf it isn’t to bad but it is going to be difficult’.
