Re: Management committee

Tullamore can like or lump it in my opinion. Am I correct in saying there is still levy on every club in Offaly for OCP? So all the other clubs around the county raise finances which effectively go into the arse pocket of Tullamore GAA. And then they want the clubs to have sympathy for them because...

Re: Club Managements

I can't understand why there aren't 2 clubs in Tullamore, there are 2 senior clubs in Athlone and 3 in Mullingar, Tullamore a similar sized town. With the population in Tullamore, they should have 3 minor teams, surely they are losing players .... Athlone and Mullingar have bigger populations than ...

Re: Maughan & O' Malley / Dunne & Maher

Tierney and Dempsey were minors in 2015 so they would be 24 this year. Dunican , Hayes , mcnamee all 25 this year, I’m nearly sure none are 23 Hayes when I think about it could be 24 This is not important in the overall scheme of things. It’s just great that we are starting to get our best players ...

Re: Club Managements

Tullamore and edenderry in truth should be far more dominant than they are, huge poulation advantage over other clubs and yes i know they have more sports to choose from but even allowing that, its crazy to think of the pooll of players say tullamore can choose from with only one gaa club in our ca...

Re: Club Managements

Any word on Ferbane, Edenderry, Shamrocks or Cappincur management teams? Nearly Christmas and all hot seats are vacant - unheard of in previosu years but understandable considering nobody knows what 2021 will look like. I imagine another shortened season with maybe no leagues.

- Clara relegated from Senior - have they ever played in the second tier before?
Wow - 64 years at the top table. Do you know POTH, have any Offaly teams, football or hurling, been a mainstay at senior ranks for their existence?

Re: Senior A Football Champioship

Very interesting first round of matches. A lot more spice compared to the last few years and the larger group structures. Great work by Offaly GAA to showcase live matches, highlights. I fancy Ferbane and Shamrocks in the Group 1 and I predict Clara, Tullamore and Cappincur to all finish on 2 points...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

I could be wrong lads but I thought last December that Michael Duignan was elected as chairman of Offaly GAA. You can't open a paper, switch on the TV or radio lately without him commenting on or being interviewed about all things relating to the national GAA scene. I see his auld buddy Donal Og ta...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Well done lads! Two in a row and unbeaten in 3...pity about the lost point against Longford.

When is the last time we have won 2 away games in a row!?

Re: Sigerson/Fitzgibbon 2020

0.4 points for him tonight and 0.1 for Jack Walsh. That makes it 1.17 in 3 matches for Farrell. Unbelievable scoring.

4 Offaly plyers will be represented between the Sigerson finalists which is fantastic to see.

Re: Sigerson/Fitzgibbon 2020

Another 7 points for Cian Farrell in the Q/F. Great to see him and Jack Walsh playing for Carlow, who will face Letterkenny IT in the semi final.

I cannot see whether Shane Tierney was involved for DCU in their Q/F?

Sigerson/Fitzgibbon 2020

Great to see Offaly players involved in both Sigerson and Fitzgibbon this year. I know the last couple of years we have had representatives but we are a long way behind other counties in this regard. Anyway, very positive and great to see Cian Farrell make the Sigerson team of the week after his per...

Re: Maughan & O' Malley / Dunne & Maher

Nigel Dunne was announced manager of Erin Rovers for 2020 so I imagine county commitment is not feasible for him now. I agree on Joe Maher, I think he would be a great addition in terms of ability.
