Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

people may bemoan how St. Ryanaghs limped out of Leinster on Sunday, and so be it, they were our county champions, and as I say, the bench mark to get decent Leinster Club run is firstly win your county final. R/E are a fine side, and have hurled well as a team over the last couple of years, despite...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

Fair enough, but be a bit more clear in your posts. So there is disharmony within the rynaghs club with player and/or mgt./quote] Very hard to be a bit more clear in my posts if I state at the start that I don't want to be naming names or divulging any great details suffice to say ide guess it's a ...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

you would wonder if they are focused on going far in leinster or happy to just get over the line winning the county championship. I'd say there is an attitude of giver it a rattle versus the fact of lets go win this. Rynaghs will know they are not a top class outfit, if any other club in Offaly thi...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

If rynaghs beat "edit" rathdowney then that be end of it. cuala will beat them up and down the road if they get to meet. would Birr/Belmont/Coolderry/Kilcormac/Shinrone meet a similar fate in your view??..Rynaghs may not have a platter of forwards to get scores but they have the best defence in the...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

unfortunately, I couldnt make the final after being at most games all year, just one of these things, listened to it on Radio 3, good commentary considering they had the Laois and Westmeath finals to cover too, Brian Whelehan lost the plot on the panel and the language of him, while acknowleging his...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

Right,lets call the county Final, Ime going to go with Rynaghs backs holding Birr forwards, getting scores will be thing for Rynaghs against whats a excellent Birr half back line and a handy full backline too...but I think they may get enough to win this, Ime going for St. Rynaghs 0-17 Birr 0-14...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

Bitterly disappointed to see Belmont lose out yesterday, I really thought they'd win it coming into the game but in the end, some incredible saves from Conor Clancy made the difference. His penalty save in particular was truly incredible, and it would have been hard to see Rynagh's coming back to w...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

I wonder would Birr and KK have been as open a game (particulary in second half) if they had the atrocious conditions Belmont and Rynaghs had to play through yesterday in Birr...Birr seem to have been very impressive today, it should be a good final, wouldnt it be like old times and a mighty atmosph...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

just back from the first semi final, in Birr, In what was by times terrible conditions,Rynaghs certainly figured out Belmont, Belmont only got 3 points in second half (Rynaghs only got 6 one could say back I suppose) but Ben Conneely nullified Oisin Kelly, without being spectacular in doing so, he w...

I know its a semifinal, but it might be a chance for some of the younger lads to get a start from the off...Danny M and Simon Og werent really on the starting 15 from the bit I follow of it this year, but would be subs probably with Camon and Wynne out...who would you slot in to your back line now?

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

Right folks, lets have a stab at predicting the scores of next weekends SHC semi finals: Belmont 2-16 St. Rynaghs 1-15 (on form Belmont should win, Ryanaghs backs will be tight on them and their non marquee players will find it tough to get scores they got in other games, Rynaghs surely got a wakeup...

Re: Senior B Hurling 2019

Hard to believe Tullamore have slipped so far back after winning a county SHC A in the fairly recent past...surely for the size of the town, which is a football and hurling town, I fear if they dont get out of SB, they will remain there for a bit...
