Re: Defunct clubs

Yes, there is some bye-law around using alterations to club names in the case of amalgamations. So it was indeed St Rynagh's Óg who won that U21 in 2012. Kilcormac-Killoughey Gaels (K-K and Drumcullen) reached 2008's U21 hurling final which they lost to Seir Kieran. And Seir Kieran Óg reached the U...

Re: Club Managements

Well they got a full back page spread about their "arrival" from Kevin Corrigan this year. Did they beat Kilcormac / Killoughey or St Rynagh's to merit this? Or even Birr or Coolderry? No, they drew with Shinrone. And went on to finish bottom of their group and probably would have got relegated if t...

Re: Club Managements

Farcical that Tullamore can't have a competitive Senior A hurling and football team considering their population and financial windfall every year from the county board for the use of OCP. Mad to think that all other clubs in Offaly pay a levy that then circumnavigates it's way to Tullamore GAA. Ede...

Re: Maughan & O' Malley / Dunne & Maher

Won't be much of an addition.

Might make match day 26, might not.

Re: Club Managements

Didn't think bringing in a manager from Rhode would sit too well in Edenderry?

And even more so when one of their own is going for the job?

Re: Johnny Pilkington

Ya I found that interesting that he never mentioned his brother considering how much they won on the field together. Maybe one has to read between the lines here.

Re: Offaly SHC 2021

If they had to meet anyone other than Kinnitty in the semi final of the Senior B in 2020 they would have won and got promoted.

Re: Offaly SHC 2021

They sure did. They conceded 4-17, 4-29, 7-24, 5-24 and 3-29 in their 5 games and lost their games on average by 24.4 points.

Re: Offaly SHC 2021

Only one team should come up from senior B. Nothing worse than losing a county final and having to play the following year up a grade that your not able for. County champions should be the only one that gets promoted. Agreed. If you are not fit to win Senior B, then you’re not fit to hurl Senior A.

Re: Offaly SHC 2021

Re: Offaly SHC 2021

I dont aggree with this "relegation semi-final" situation at all..and in particular in the year we are in...all teams get to play their group games, top 2 in semi finals, bottom team goes down, this drawn out thing, and in some counties lads being flown home from abroad (some who havent hurled that...

Offaly SHC 2021

You might think it's a bit strange to start a thread on the 2021 championship when the 2020 version hasn't even been completed yet but it's important that some thinking goes into the structure and schedule of this championship for the coming year. As we are all well aware we are existing in a very f...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

nothing wrong with discussing the lads who have opted out, some here no doubt will want to, fair enough if you dont want to, I know more than the Kielys are huge losses in their own way I know, but they are in particular given they were both more than likely to be on starting teams, and Cillian bei...
