When April was unveiled as the ‘month of the club’ with positive intentions a couple of years ago, it was always likely to turn into something of an uncomfortable union; like a sort of arranged GAA marriage between the club groom and his inter-county bride, given the proximity of so many provincial championship games in early May to their shotgun wedding.

How did April work out for your club? Like most things in the association, I’d imagine it would be a difficult task to reach a consensus.

The practical workings and nuts and bolts are important here, and I’m conscious that there is a wide spectrum of opinion — some club players may have felt they got great value out of April while many others will not share that sentiment.
