Before the GAA championship begins, a cautionary tale.
Some years ago, a former intercounty manager known to this column had signed up to help hurling in one of the ‘weaker’ counties, committing to a few Saturdays coaching coaches and so on. Fighting the good fight.
He rang the county board involved but nothing suited the first weekend. He rang again but nothing suited the second weekend.
When he was told nothing suited on the third weekend, he got the message and deleted that contact from his phone.
