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.

Re: Byrne v Duignan

Looks like Duignan is going to get in if twitter and media reports are to be believed. I think before Duignans Dictatorship takes over we should thank so many hardworking individuals that have gone about their business in the background in difficult circumstances when it would have been so easy to ...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

We have seen public support on club accounts for Duignan's ticket from the following clubs (as would have been expected): St. Rynaghs Ballinamere Durrow Edenderry Clara The 15 votes from the above will cancel out the majority of CB officer votes which will go in favour of the status quo you would im...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

I do appreciate that this new group don't have all the answers and some may even be interested in little bit of ego trip but I am certain of one thing! The new group will bring good people in around them and bring a positivity and effort level in terms of coaching and games dev and strategy that we...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

Quote from Tommy Byrne in Midland Tribune " There is a lot of talk about strategic plans and those things are important but it is airy fairy stuff. A Strategic plan is grand if you can implement it but we have two strategic plans in football and hurling which we are implementing" Brilliant. What a ...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

Respectively, I see you are from Gracefield so perhaps bias aside, I feel you are missing the point. He is lying. 'They didn't come back to us'. They did and were stonewalled. 'I picked up the phone and stopped it there and then'. Again lies. It was stopped alright but no direct contact was ever mad...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

Joy Troy rightfully weighing in last night on Twitter regarding the upcoming contest for chairman after the Tribune allowed Byrne to tarnish his name without right to reply. I cannot understand how people can support Tommy Byrne and I find it unfathomable that he will more than likely win the upcomi...

Re: Senior A Football 2019

Ferbane or Tullamore probably favorites for relegation final seeing as both will have to beat Rhode and Clara respectively. Shamrocks likely to beat Cappincur which would put them through if either Ferbane or Tullamore fail to win. Very flawed system but very exciting conclusion with all teams inter...

Re: Leinster Under 20 Hurling Championship

Congratulations to players and management! Was glued to Joe Troy on twitter...great excitement! Great to hear there was good support in attendance. Probably the biggest shock since we beat Kildare at U21 level a few years ago in Athy.

Re: Football Leagues 2019

Nice of the county board to arrange league fixtures on a week day at 7pm for two weeks in succession.

Not everybody lives or works within the confines of the county.

Re: Additions to County panels Football and Hurling

I can understand why it is not attractive to hurl for Offaly...but the footballers results have been okay over the last number of years everyone should be mad to play for the county. Who are the 10 players who would be good enough for a matter of interest. Colm Doyle, Carl Stewart, Graham Guilfoyle...

The same guy who left Roscommon a few years back for being taken off. All 3 managers can’t be blamed? Time to look in the mirror Nigel
