When historians and quiz-masters come to pick out the more obscure curiosities about how the coronavirus pandemic affected sport, the 2020 Donegal Senior Football Championship final is sure to feature.
Right now, Kilcar and Naomh Conaill are still in limbo with last year's final unplayed. They made it through their semi-finals in mid-September, before all club activities were ceased by a strict lockdown.
They have not been able to fulfil the fixture since and are entirely unsure when it might happen with the Republic of Ireland government and NPHET public health authorities giving nothing away.
Kilcar manager John McNulty, understands the difficulties, but he wants the showpiece day played off as soon as possible.
"If they run the (inter-county) All-Ireland series first, whenever Donegal exit that competition, allow us a few weeks to prepare, but play the 2020 county final after that. That's when I would expect it to be played and I believe that would be fair," he has said.
He is heartened by the murmurings at county board level that there is no conceivable way that the competition will not be completed.
"It may fit in well at the start, because it is the closure of one season and the start of another. And that's where it has to be," states McNulty.
An idea was floated by a CCC meeting that the 2020 final might actually be staged after the 2021 Donegal Championship final, but it never got any support.
"There was a forum last week for all the clubs, the Donegal CCC hosted it," McNulty explained.
"They put all the options up on the table, they were talking about league structures and everything.
"They couldn't be definitive on anything because, like us, everybody is waiting. But one of the suggestions that they had on the board at the time was that the 2020 final would be played after the 2021 final.
"Now, it was up on the table, more than anything else. It was quickly dispensed with. I spoke at the meeting and I said it would have me totally deflated, having to play the 2020 final after the 2021 season.
"I just couldn't see how it would have been viable at all. It would have been totally meaningless and I think they took that on board at the meeting as well and agreed it wouldn't be the right thing to do."
It is, however, a coaches' nightmare, with McNulty and his opposite number Martin Regan left in a strange half-light, a county final ahead of them with none of the usual trappings and virtually no excitement.
Kilcar have Donegal county players, cousins Ryan and Eoin McHugh, Andy McClean and Paddy McBrearty, while Mark McHugh, Michael Hegarty and Stephen McBrearty will be familiar to many.
How to manage that return to play has been the difficulty for the manager to decide, along with his coach and selector, Aidan McCarron.
"You get their bodies ready as much as possible, in terms of their gym work and keeping them ticking over fitness-wise," he said.
"So they are allowed to go for their runs and use their running programme.
"It is there to keep them ticking over and we talk a bit about our nutrition to keep the weight off them, make sure they are staying in good shape.
"So when it comes through that we can hit the field, they are in good shape and we are able to build on it then quite quickly and keep the injury list down."
Kilcar are one of the clubs who see the bigger picture and McCarron is a coach that believes in pre-habilitation work, leading to less injuries and ensuring the strongest possible squad as the season progresses.
It's one of the things that McNulty approves of.
"The injury list is a massive thing. It determines who you are going to have in Championship and I always listen to people talking about training and training and training. You do need a level of training, but you also need a level of know-how and a gameplan as well as anything else.
"I always say in training, well, a lot of the time, that less is more. The rest is vitally important. I see players in other clubs talking about the Tuesday night before a Championship game putting in a wild session of running, getting into a wild heavy session.
"I can never understand that. It takes the hunger out of players. If you have them topped up and ready to hit that pitch, once they hit that pitch on a Sunday they are fresh and mad for it. You can't beat that.
"I have been managing teams now the guts of 18, 19 years. And that is nonsense, absolute nonsense. It is a cop-out from management. In my opinion, bad management."
"The benefit of anything is winning, winning the match. That will over-ride any training you can do. If you can win the match, there comes a confidence with that, an extra bit in that."
