Seven months and 23 days have passed since Kovid Harling was removed.
Well, we saw some great club activity over the summer, but nothing compares to the excitement of the inter-county championships. Even at an unfamiliar time in late October.
Will we go through them? who knows. But now we can try to enjoy the long awaited treat.
We started by justifying the Dublin bias in the encounter against Laois on Saturday in an empty Croke Park.
On Sunday, neighbors Claire and Limerick renewed their experience in a Munster quarter-final that doubles as the Alliance Hurling League final.
They were the form teams in the country before the mandatory break, but as Galway showed in the football league last weekend, it doesn’t count for seven months.
Last year (1-28 to 0-13) when the teams clashed in the Munster Round Robin, Limerick surpassed Claire by 18 points, but in the spring the banner looked even stronger under new manager Brian Lohan.
Claire is missing four former all-stars, including captain John Conlon, Podge Collins, Peter Duggan and Colm Galvin. Both teams have Mike Casey and Richie English out of Limerick.
It is also worth noting what the winter weather influences on games, especially the possibility of hail falling from the shores of the coast.
Both games end in penalty shootouts, because there must be a winner.
However, unlike the football championship, which went back to a direct knockout, it will have a second chance at qualifying after years of failure this weekend.
Joe McDonald, Christy Ring, Nicky Rockard and Lori Meeger cups also start this weekend.
Antrim, the newly promoted Division 2A champions due to Covid-19, will miss six players, but their Joe MacDonald match against Westmeet ends on Sunday, with Kerry and Meath meeting in the trolley.
That match remains a round robin affair with a final.
In Christie’s Ring, Ofali (V Kildare) and Sligo (V Derry) had to walk over due to the corona virus, but will get a second chance through the back door on the weekend of November 7/8.
