Re: Senior A and B Hurling Championships 2020

Just for the year that's in it (btw I'm not fully advocating this, I'm just spitballing!) why don't the County Board place all 16 teams from Senior A and B in a hat and have a straight knockout championship with a back door thus guaranteeing every team 2 high intensity championship fixtures (exact ...

Re: Irish Independent: The Day of the Short Whistle

Great article POTH. Nice to relive those heady days from 1998. I was at the 3 games with Clare, I think Offaly had the neutral support at the Thurles game.

Re: Club Championship Draws

Cant have county finals too early as then the county champions are left waiting for first round of leinster. Ideally county final would be player two weeks prior to the 1st round of leinster championship. Going on the recent club championships, completed a week or two before provincial club fixture...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

I hear where you are comming from relegation wise, not sure whom the teams below us have in their last games but we have Derry and Tipperary, and realistically will struggle to get even a draw against Tipperary, we wont beat Derry, so if the other teams have wins we could be in bother...whatever ab...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

Not good today, Down far better than Offaly tactically, and scorewise. Offaly do not seem to have improved in the art of score taking, still look overly cautious going forward. I would like to have seen changes in the forward area made earlier.

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

Grumbling in Kerry because Offaly v Antrim will be played after Kerry play their final game. But there is NO stipulation that each team play their final round of games simultaneously. (That would never work if there was an odd number of teams in a group.) That, and Antrim presumably have accommodat...

Re: DIV 3 NFL predictions and general chit chat.

realistically can we beat Down next weekend for starters do you think? Congrats to team and management on a good win yesterday, 2-16 is a good score. It will be a big game for Offaly. Down are on 5 points, they are chasing promotion, I go for a draw. Tipperary away next, Derry at home. 3 teams on 5...

Re: Offaly U20s

Couple of lads in this team capable of going on to play at co senior level. It is a young team and a few (even the best of them) are underage again next year. Off top of my head Jack Bryant, Cathal O Donoghue and Aidan Bracken among others have potential to step up in coming years. Surprised the yo...

Re: Election 2020 laois offaly

Historic election result, the old order is changed forever. I didn't see Carol Nolan retaining her seat, well done to her. It is up to SF to form a government, as the party with the highest vote. With all the left parties, she would be well short of a majority, some of the independents are of an FG ...
