Six GAA games shown on TV this weekend that you do not want to miss
And so it begins.
The National League is finally upon us, the pre-season cups are done and dusted, the winners will say it was a brilliant stepping stone, and the losers will claim they never really cared about it anyway and that it was all about game time.
Regardless, that is in the past now, the warm-ups are done, and everyone cares about the league campaign.
In Division four and three, in particular, you could argue that the league is the most important part of their season, as they want to progress to Divisions two and one, start mixing it with the big boys and really prepare themselves for a stab at an All-Ireland.
