Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

Off topic alright.

But I would hope that hurlers get right appointment because some of the abuse is stemming from non performance on field and frustration...no excuse I know, but this is what happens in many of the weaker counties.

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

"They and their coaches, nutritionists, psychologists etc. etc. etc. have destroyed the organisation. The GAA has become little more than a very financially rewarding playground for spoofers and charlatans." Fair dues Bracknaghboy, dead right in ...safe to say 60% of cases in Club scene.

Re: Senior A Football 2019

Shocking performance by Ferbane, they are not in a good place by the looks of things.

Clara might have a pep in their step this year alright.

Re: Shane Lowry - Official topic

Fantastic, the man has done no end of good for himself, family, community, county, country and his sport! I have never seen a more popular winner of a sporting occasion I think than him. I remember Barry McGuigans wins being emotional at the time given the terrible violence in the background but thi...

Re: Is there a future for small rural clubs?

Out from behind the keyboards lads!! Lot of small clubs in GAA only jogging along and lads with ambition are being held back. Should be Parish teams , end of and that would be a suitable compromise to keep some of these rural clubs going, with players who want to train and play at a higher level get...

Re: Offaly U20s Football

Well said Jimbob. Of course you are right. But your point comes back to “if only”. My point is that these 2 u20 teams were as well prepared as other teams, fact. Did they perform to their best v Meath,?, no. Could they have won the game , ? Yes. Why they underperformed is a question, but they are go...

Re: Offaly U20s Football

It was Cathal Donaghue who made the run and had a decent game and a fine year. Struggled against Meath at midfield , and Meaths height in the forward line had us under pressure also. Lot of players will be disappointed with their performances but couldn't fault the effort. Our 3 teams have only been...

Re: Offaly v Sligo Round 2 Qualifier

Cathal Mangan, he put in a good shift, and he is improving game by game. I think we played decent and got some great team scores But defensively we allowed Sligo up the field very easily, we are marking space and Sligo could have scored 2 goals,with 15pts being a decent tally. However, really in bon...

I agree, Ex player looking to keep his profile up with newstalk and situation v Wicklow last year was shameful with our ref commentator contributions.

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

We need a bit of quality and continuity at underage, and I include U20. Declan Kelly for example has done great work with the 20s and another year there might set him up nicely to be ready for a crack at the Seniors after John Maughan. Similarly if Gary gets a bit of momentum with bringing through g...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

This. I wasn't goingt to post anything about Saturday because it's still massively disappointing. But I want to draw attention to PJ's point. For as long as the work is not done at grassroots, Offaly will continue to produce teams who:- - are deficient in basic fitness (I mean the areas such as saq...

Re: Leinster Under 20 Hurling Championship

F..k sake! Sums it up really. No commentary on performance, matches , chances of a win etc , only pedantics regarding where the game is played. I'd love to add something from the Carlow game but I wasn't there, and know very little about the lads except anyone I talk to that does know tells me they ...
