Re: Tomás Ó Sé appointed as selector with Offaly senior footballers

His experience will benefit the players no doubt. Maybe a downside would be will he still be a pundit on the Sunday Game will he be fully committed to the roll and the commute from Cork three nights a week will that happen. It is believed that the Gaeltacht native will give up his media obligations...

Re: Tomás Ó Sé appointed as selector with Offaly senior footballers

It’s a long haul forward. Retaining Division 2 Status will take some serious effort. It’s really interesting how a little success can bring interest from places that would have been unheard of not long ago. Long may the momentum continue to build! Welcome aboard Tomas and best wishes in your new role!

Re: Offaly GAA Progress

i think before we start thinking about div 1 and surviving there, we have to challenge the teams on the second rung. like antrim westmeath and laois . we seem to have a huge ability in the forwards to put up big scores. but we concede a good bit too. that maybe is where the problems will surface?. ...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

Will take some heavy lifting to get us out of Division 2 (would be great if we could accomplish that though). Was apprehensive enough coming into the campaign. Hard to ask for more than what we got. Well done to the the team and all involved. Our reward is a move into a league environment that does...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

Offaly played Tipp & Wexford last week. Anyone here how these games went ? A comprehensive defeat to a Tipp rotational side by accounts. Interesting comments from "Westside" in The Nationalist ( local Tipp paper) "The friendly featured mostly Tipperary players who didn’t see action against Clare an...

Re: Offaly v Kildare Leinster SFC 1/4 Final 2021

Unfortunately, I felt after a bright start yesterday, the second half was very disappointing. Had it on radio. When we started misfiring in our scoring end early in the game it gave a sinking feeling. Sounded like an early 6 or 7 point lead was on if we had been able to execute. Thanks for the grea...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

..one man the other day told me they would beat "the likes" (his words) of Antrim and Dublin and Laois...I beg to differ... This is short memory talk of the highest order. We have no business assuming we'd beat any of them. We'll have to wait til next year to get a clearer picture. In the meantime ...
