It’s that time of year again, time to sit back, chill out and enjoy the festivities. Time too to give the blog a rest for a few days, not least given that the on-field action gets going once more early in the New Year.
But, of course, it’s been restful enough here for several weeks now, in fact ever since the aftershocks of the All-Ireland final had died down. It’s a break I’ve been enormously thankful of, as it’s been the first year for a long time where the closed season has remained closed. We really should do this more often.
What a year it’s been too, what an incredible championship campaign we got to experience. No Nirvana – again – but so many great memories, so many truly great days. I really do believe that, in years to come, this one will live long in our minds and for all the right reasons too.
We’ll go again – and sure why wouldn’t we? – next year but let’s get the Christmas behind us first. Thanks all for dropping by in such phenomenal numbers over the course of 2017 and best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.
