Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

Lets not forget that Offaly's first All Ireland in 1981 was won with a Galway man at corner back who wasn't seen as a contender for a place in his native county. Given that Martin Dolphin has Offaly connections I would like to think there is an affinity to Offaly that's driving any potential move. S...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

I hear Martin Dolphin from Portumna has been called into the hurling panel. As offaly are now playing in the 3rd tier of the hurling championship they are allowed 5 players from outside the county, without them getting a transfer to an Offaly club. Not sure if this is a progressive move for the pan...

Re: Meeting In Tullamore

The arguments about where games get played is one issue. Personally I'd like to see certain league games and Walsh Cup games in Birr (and possibly elsewhere in Offaly), but championship matches and county finals should be in the premier county ground. The idea that leaving Birr in 2006 caused a down...

Re: Meeting In Tullamore

It seems like a number of the group are going to contest for positions at county convention this December. Chiefly Michael Duignan running for chairman and some the others going for different roles. It's good to see there is a willingness from the group to get inside the white lines rather than shou...

Re: Meeting In Tullamore

We could give this group the benefit of the doubt and believe that these are people pulling together to put their shoulder to the wheel in a more organised manner. There is plenty of coaching, fundraising and strategic management experience going by the names mentioned. On the other hand this may ju...

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

Greatest piece of political dog-whistling I've ever seen, Appears to launching a broadside against Trump and Johnson, but is actually angling for the Offaly manager's job! https://www.independent.ie/irish-news/politics/phil-hogan-promises-bit-of-ground-hurling-with-donald-trump-after-being-appointed...

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

According to Brian Lowry on twitter: "Offaly senior hurling panel will be an exciting and well organised set up in 2020 going on Michael Fennelly's words today. He spent the full day in Faithful Fields today meeting County Board officials, potential backroom team members, U20 management and media." ...

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

He definitely ticks the right boxes and the Christy Ring is a good place to get him started from.
At 34 and slightly crocked, he'd still be a good addition to the Offaly starting 15 :mrgreen:

Superb!
It was clear for years he had the ability to land a big one. It just needed to all come together at the right time.

Re: Leinster Under 20 Hurling Championship

Offaly won, which you’d scarcely believe. Even more than that, Offaly went up to Parnell Park, where Dublin normally horse us out of it and bossed them for the evening. It’s a rare a day you’ll see Offaly make the bulk of the clean catches and win most of the rucks. And the team that does this usual...

Re: Offaly v Sligo Round 2 Qualifier

As people have outlined, this was a very good display from Offaly. The performance contained all the hallmarks of a committed and hard working team. Great off the ball running, nearly always an extra Offaly man at every ruck and Offaly's option taking was top notch when the ball was being moved forw...

Re: Offaly v Leix Round 3 Qualifier

I know that we’re due an away game, but does anyone else think that it’s complete BS as to why Leix get home advantage? They should have pulled for the team to play WH then reentered LX to the bowl and whoever comes out first gets home advantage. It would seem to be fairer, then again …… That being...

Re: Offaly v Leix Round 3 Qualifier

Offaly played Leix in Portleix in 2006 in a Round 4 qualifier on foot of a home and away agreement. Surely it comes to Tullamore this time?

Re: Leinster Under 20 Hurling Championship

Last meeting (u21) Leinster Final 2016 - OCP?? Yep, but the previous meetings in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2011 were all Parnell Park if I recall correctly. POTH would know better. Oh really? 3 years in a row in Parnell Park!! Didn’t realise that. Best of Luck to them wherever they play it, carrying the...
