The GAA released their 2017 Master Fixtures Schedule yesterday and, from this, Mayo GAA have today published the full list of fixtures involving the county for next year. This includes football and hurling, senior, junior and underage. The whole lot, in other words, and it’s all here.
I haven’t yet transcribed these fixtures across to the relevant page here on the site but I’ll do so at some point over the next while. It’ll then be there as a handy reference point for the year’s action that lies ahead the other side of Christmas.
Some of you are already, no doubt, gearing up in earnest for other year of football; others are perhaps still working their way through mental rehab following the dashing of our dreams in early October. I’m still squarely in the latter category, I must confess – getting there but not with any great speed.
Still, seeing the list of all those 2017 fixtures – all those as yet uncontested contests – does help to focus the mind onto the future and away from what’s gone before. The past, as the saying goes, is a foreign country. What lies ahead for us is what counts now. Once we get over the Christmas.
