Re: Thoughts on the Senior B Hurling final

Saturday will be one of the greatest days in Seir Kieran’s hurling story: contesting two adult finals. Think about that for a moment. A parish with fewer than 500 souls. It’s difficult enough for small clubs to have the numbers for a second team, the Clareen mens’ second team are in the Intermediat...

Re: Senior A Football 2019

Congratulations to Ferbane, who bridged a 25 year gap to become SFC champions today. Ferbane came good in the second half, with two Cian Johnson goals, and never looked back, beating Rhode by 2-13 to 0-14. Niall McNamee didn't start for Rhode, but came on in the second half, but couldn't save his te...

Re: Meeting In Tullamore

Hurling was destroyed when it went to OCP north offaly folk dont care about hurling.keep it in Birr for the better. now that's an ignorant comment. Didn't take long for the bile to emerge. Back to the 'high powered 'group. Have been speaking to people about this development. General consensus seems...

Re: Meeting In Tullamore

The arguments about where games get played is one issue. Personally I'd like to see certain league games and Walsh Cup games in Birr (and possibly elsewhere in Offaly), but championship matches and county finals should be in the premier county ground. The idea that leaving Birr in 2006 caused a dow...

Senior Hurling Finals have been held in Tullamore since at least 2009. Next Sunday's game will be there also.

Re: Senior A Football 2019

To say Clara lost their heads for a 10-15 minute spell in the first half would be an understatement.2 reds, 4 yellows and Brian Darby and Niall mc going off with head injuries. They completely lost it and game was over at that stage after conceding 2 goals within 7 minutes. Rhode played with Clara ...

Re: Senior A Football 2019

Clara to win easy. Think Ferbane will be rattled by Shamrocks. I fancy Shamrocks to win this one - they are much closer than the odds suggest. I think Gracefield will rattle Tullamore too but Tullamore to edge it for finish. By all accounts Gracefield will have plenty of better players back in and ...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

I seen them hurl there this year and from I see of Shinrone they are hurling well enough to hurl anywhere, having said that, they would be guaranteed a good home support (which they will have anyway I suppose) and alot of neutral support if it was in Birr..Ime neither club but dont think I will hea...

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

By all accounts Michael Fennelly will be at a SHC game today. Where do we expect him to rock up to? Rath for Kinnitty v Coolderry would be my guess as it’s the game with the most riding on it providing Kilcormac / Killoughey justify their heavy favouritism. He was in Clareen on Sunday along with To...

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

I'd say most supporters will be delighted with Michael Fennelly and his management team, and wish them well. Offaly hurling needs to reverse the decline in recent years, and participate in the Leinster championship.

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

On the weekend predictions, the Belmont v Shinrone, dream final won't happen.
The romantics can still hope.
