Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

It was a shocking incident, and the club had the opportunity to make a statement that thuggery would not be tolerated. Instead, the club opted not to back the existing management. Quickly appointing Liam Hogan, the club announced via twitter they were "pleased to announce" the new appointment. By th...

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

I think the make up of the whole management team is important, the right manager, right coach, right trainer. And don't mind having selectors to stand there in anoraks, top boots and flat caps. Like, the combination of Kevin Martin as manager and Declan Fanning as coach underperformed, to say the le...

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

Be very interesting to find out the reasons for JQ's dismissal. Westmeath are ambitious and when you think about it, they had a disappointing year. The win over Offaly was overshadowed by defeat to Kerry at home a week later (and Offaly were merely fulfilling the fixture anyway), and while they were...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

Only getting around to this now. I was very impressed with how Shinrone went about their business on Saturday. They were energetic, forceful and basically bullied Coolderry for most of the game. Shinrone came to make a statement. I was very impressed with the speed with which they broke from defence...

Hi Salmon, and welcome.

Something like this was discussed here a few years back. It would be worth your while to peruse that thread here:

Re: Offaly v Leix Round 3 Qualifier

Yea, that's like being told 'you wouldn't understand'. So try us, John Horan, we're smarter than you give us credit for. I didn't see the draw, but it appears Westmeath were the fifth team drawn out, then Leix were drawn. Leix had to move down to the next tie, then Offaly were drawn. So it appears t...

Re: Offaly v Leix Round 3 Qualifier

To turn that the other way around, Leix haven't beaten Offaly in the championship in 13 years.

Re: Offaly's 2000 Minor & U21 lineouts

Percy's background in hurling is that he hurled in goals for Kinnitty for 20+ years, winning six Offaly SHCs and was Offaly sub goalkeeper for 1969's Leinster final and for a few years following that. Again, ended up down a wormhole. Is this the same Cllr. Clendennen (FG) who had some difficulty wit...

Re: Re:

I'm not sure you'd have found a programme article through google. But maybe you did. That was written in 2007. Over the course of the following five years, Offaly: - beat the previous year's All-Ireland finalists by ten points, knocking them out of the championship; - ran the eventual All-Ireland fi...
