It’s that time again.
It feels like only yesterday that Stephen Cluxton raised the Sam Maguire cup high in the Hogan Stand to bring an end to the GAA’s intercounty season.
And here we are again back in the thick of the gaelic football and hurling action.
Sportsfile travelled the country to capture the people and the action behind twelve of the pre-season games.
Take a look at the highlights in the slideshow and on our Facebook page.
