Re: Shane Lowry - Official topic

Just back for the reception on The Green in Clara, some crowds!
Fair rendition of The Rover to end the event from Mundy. Great occasion.

Aye, they should play it in Birr. Should draw in the North Tipp and East Galway crowds :lol: :wink: :D 8) :P
Stop stirring you... :lol: They are home games but Co. Board is running the gate. You buy a ticket or weekend pass to all games.

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

we might differ on somethings, but I have to agree with the above post, and no disrespect or anything to anyone associated with Tullamore or its environs, as an avid Offaly hurling supporter I have to say, even personally, the journeys to Tullamore which I made in the initial days soon dried up, so...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

Maybe look at one of the real facts of why the heart and soul has been ripped out of Offaly hurling...a game in Birr might do them the world of good. If this is the reason for the 'slump' then we have bigger problems than I thought. Any player worth his salt shouldn't care if the game was played in...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

A few new faces on the panel at tonight's training - all signs are positive for the next few weeks. I hope this doesn't turn out to be something akin to Ole at Man.Utd, new man comes in and there's a lift...just plastering over the cracks. Or, a sign that south players wouldn't put in the effort fo...

Re: Offaly Minor Football Team Named

[ Geansai Gorm probably hasn't attended one of the 20 plus games that this management have organized in preparation ] How many here have? Stupid question, I don't have anyone on the team and I'd say most parents haven't been to may of the games either. Yes, the county panels are well prepared in the...

Re: Offaly Minor Football Team Named

Oh dear, no scores from play, and defensive football. For me the point of minor and underage teams is to provide a platform to develop football skills and talent. Playing blanket defence robs young players of any spark of individuality or expression. It shocks me to hear young county teams play like...

Re: Meath v Offaly 12th May 2019 @3pm Navan

In fairness to both Meath & Kildare, they went down the road of centres of excellence years ago, forgoing any development work on their county grounds to give their county teams the best training facilities. Now they are both in the planning for re-develping their grounds. Offaly and Laois did it th...

Re: Additions to County panels Football and Hurling

Was at Wheery V St.Vincents this morning in U20. Cian Johnston played, scored 1 point. Only I know who he is, I would never pick him out of all the players on view as a potential county player. He was well marked by young Bolger from Daingean, made Johnston look very ordinary. To be fair, conditions...

Re: Intermediate Football 2019

This whole championship is down to how Rynaghs approach this. If they give the footballers the time and support they should be winners here, they should be a comfortable Senior B side.
Brigids / Bridge / Ballycommon / Daingean on their day capable of winning but not if Rynaghs take it serious.

Offaly 0-11 Kildare 1-20 More telling, Half -Time OY 0-04 KE 1-14 Can't say men against boys as both sides looked the same, Kildare had a lot of U20s on show.
