Re: Semi-Finals

Ferbane got what they deserved. the sneering on video and facebook about last years junior final was terrible. kliclonfert tried hard to win that final for a lost colleague and made mistakes when they thought it was in the bag. I have never seen a club to rub a final loss into their oppositions face...

Re: Offaly GAA - in Crisis

Our county is in turmoil without any lea...

Re: offaly team versus westmeath

absolutely clueless last sunday. is that the players fault or are they playing to the system that the management set up ? if the management are in charge and allowed these tactics playing with the wind, we are in serious trouble. if the players ignored the manager and did their own thing playing wit...

Re: Football league 3 2017

firstly , last Sunday was down to poor organisation and poor attitude. both of these issues need to be addressed immediately. there is so much wrong within our club and county set up. last year we had a system for the club championship that worked well. 1st rd started in late July which didn't inter...

Re: Club Managers 2014

I dont know anything about pj murray or declan farrell but all the other managers mentioned have been part of winning management teams in the last 6 years.

Re: Club Managers 2014

Re: SFC Qualifier Draw - Offaly vs Tyrone
