Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

KK v Birr KK to win by 6 points - 1-19 to 0-16 Shinrone v Kinnity Shinrone to win by 3 points - 0-17 to 0-14 Belmont v Coolderry Belmont to win by 5 points - 3-17 to 2-15 St Rynaghs v Ballinamere St Rynaghs to win by 12 points - 3-19 to 1-13 I agree with all of Chimbonda's game winners. However I t...

Re: Senior A Football 2019

My initial thought after seeing them was that they were using them. But going by this forum it seems they aren’t.

Re: Senior A Football 2019

Pretty crazy situation alright. This was easily remedied pre-championnship. Keep your 2 groups of 4, play your criss-cross games and then teams were ranked 1 to 8 depending on their record after the group stage. #1 and #2 to semis, #3 v #6 and #4 v #5 in Quarters. Not exactly rocket science. It’s ac...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

Look to me at this stage that even with 3 rounds to go that 5 of the 6 qualifying slots are set in stone. St Rynagh's, Kilcormac/Killoughey, Belmont, Birr and Shinrone. With St Rynagh's and Kilcormac/Killoughey to go directly to semi-finals. The last place looks like it will come down to a last roun...

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

I’m not as clued in as you so I actually don’t know what happened that led to the management walking?

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

A lot of things not adding up here. Firstly AFAIK Joachim wasn’t the manager. Seamus Kennedy was so how is Liam Hogan the new manager?

And secondly what is this about a player should be banned for life?

And also I could be way off but has this anything to do with Ronnie Byrne’s Twitter?

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

Excellent performance by Shinrone. Backs totally wiped out Coolderry forwards in first half. Entire team was top class on the ball, physical and aggressive. Terribly naive defending by Coolderry for the first goal when the entire defence followed the Shinrone forwards out to midfield for the throw i...

Re: Senior A Football 2019

Interesting to see a home and away format being used in this year's Senior A championship. E.g Rhode are at home to Edenderry in Round 1. I actually thought it might just be this game with this arrangement as Rhode travelled to play Edenderry last year to play at the opening of Edenderry's new groun...

Re: Is there a future for small rural clubs?

Are these lads twin brothers or am I mistaken? And they have a habit of going down very easily?

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

Shinrone v Coolderry - I did a preview piece before the championship started on this thread and I predicted a final of Kilcormac / Killoughey vs Shinrone, partly because I thought Shinrone might finally make a burst and also because I wanted to break from the norm. Well it's sh*t or get off the pot ...

Re: Leinster Under 20 Hurling Championship

I think we need to back the great result v Dublin with one more win otherwise it will be forgotten about it and not much benefit too us. Hopefully we can. Really agree with this sentiment. Following Offaly since 2000 has increased the inherent pessimism within me and I would be quite concerned that...

Next Wednesday night in OCP at 7:30pm. Lots of rest and recovery needed for those boys before then.

Re: Offaly U20s Hurling

Fantastic win by our U20's tonight. A win in Parnell Park is huge. What a boost for hurling in the county. Interesting to note that originally when the fixtures were announced that both semi-finals were fixed for next Wednesday but upon checking leinstergaa.ie today Kilkenny vs Galway has been fixed...
