Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

Good atmosphere there for KK breakthrough, (what year was that?)

Also for Tullamore's win, what year again?

Anyway it's in Tullamore, so don't any of ye make the mistake of heading to Birr

2020 Leinster Championship

Carlow v Offaly in the first round.

Probably Portlaoise. Will be a good incentive with a rattle at Kildare for the winners.

But at least we can start saving now for the first round!

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

Jayz , I'm torn on this one, I don't want to get caught up the SBP v OCP stuff now, as is irrelevant at this point with the match going ahead in OCP. But there were some epic battles in Birr with these 2! Hopefully there is a big crowd for the final in Tullamore, Birr wouldn't have a big following, ...

Re: Meeting In Tullamore

My guess is that in the main they have gone to the senior more high profile clubs who they know they need to get onboard and are engaging in diplomacy as opposed to democracy. Well Lone Shark, That's my point above, they are trying to gauge the appetite for change from a selection of people that the...

Re: Senior A Football 2019

Fair play for your bluntness Frank. Limited chance that any Offaly team will win a Leinster, but that won't be Ferbanes objective. Superb turnaround from earlier in the championship and would appear to be slight favourites for the final.# On Tullmans point, yes you have consistently stated that Cian...

Re: Meeting In Tullamore

Eh No lads, all ye have "organized" are a few sneery comments on a keyboard. This group that have gotten together, probably could have gone about their business slightly differently alright. But they did have a meeting and they did invite a wide circle of people. They havn't , according to media rep...

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

It is an interesting appointment and I hope he gets the support required from the hurling fraternity. There is also a pat on the back due to the County Board, who have tried to go after strong candidates. I really hope that the best players commit and give all now to help develop Offaly hurling to g...

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...
