Re: Is there a future for small rural clubs?

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

I have decided to vote with my feet also... I will no longer attend an Offaly football match unless it's held in Rhode. It is the heartland of football in the county and I don't see why games are held in Tullamore to accommodate people from South Offaly.... There is no doubt in my mind that if the g...

Re: 2017 Offaly SFC Semi-Finals

Who refereed it? Ger Keyes was fixed to be the referee but Joe Troy on commentary for Radio 3 kept referring to Fintan Pierce as the referee. Ger Keys was the referee for the senior game. Fintan Pierce was the referee for the minor game and made some very questionable decisions. In fact, they weren...
