Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

Best of luck to the minors this weekend. Reaching a leinster final for a Tier 3 county would be a great achievement! Funnily enough the Leinster council seem to have forgotten that. Their fixture list stated last week the semifinal would be played in the home venue of the lower tier county. Im open ...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

If it wasn't for all these covid restrictions we could organise a welcome to galatsaray arrival for the dubs!

Maybe we coukd all get our shopping bags and let on we're going shopping in Tesco and hold up the bus.

Re: All ireland hurling semi final

I would also agree with the OP. I have never seen a single player try to pull off a hook in the way Hegarty swung his hurl. On Kyle Hayes too I couldn't believe the amount of steps he was getting away with. He was like Usain Bolt. It left the Galway defenders with little choice but to foul him by pu...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

First off well done to Down. I belive two teams get promoted this year so they are going up. I felt the ref gifted us a free to level it at the end of etxta time. They pick from a tiny base so its a great achievement. We cant stay playing hurling from the past, but today in the conditions we did nee...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

The job of defending one on one is now almost impossible. The ball carrier is permitted at least 8 steps, and if you do manage to hold him up the offload is a throw 9 times out of 10. The runner from deep now runs stright lines like a centre in rugby and nowadays a lot of players are dipping their h...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

Irish independent reporting we will have to give Kildare a walkover due to a covid positive test for a player in the panel. May i suggest getting together 24 lads from the clubs that were due to play the co finals. They were still in training up to very recently. I reckon we have enough quality in t...

Re: Fixtures

Id say they are waiting to see if the government give the green light for crowds to go back to games. They'll know tomorrow

Re: Standard of Senior club hurling in Offaly

Newsflash! The earth is not flat. I don't see the logic in giving the ball away to the opposition. The difference is that in the old days you could give the ball away without consequence, because you'd get it back again 10 seconds later. Now, give the ball away and you are effectively conceding a s...

Re: Shinrone - Clearys?

I'd say 13 of them would actually be a low number for Shinrone.

Re: Senior A and B Hurling Championships 2020

I reckon within 7 to 10 days Dublin will be in lockdown territory, going by the past 7 days growth there, but we may all be "in it together" again. One more week for the €€€€€ to be spent in the tourism sector. Hotels that have been full for the last two months will have few bookings from September ...

Re: Senior A and B Hurling Championships 2020

we cannot honestly say Dublin wouldnt be locked down if Carroll meats was in Dublin, we are being a bit biassed in that assertion (I was myself on Friday evening to be honest)...I think they (NEPHT) would advise the lock down in any place, the building sites in Dublin were a little different in tha...

Re: Senior A and B Hurling Championships 2020

If this lockdown gets extended by another couple of weeks we should pull out of the intercounty championships. Rushing them off to get finished in time would be disrespectful to all the club players who have been training hard over the last few months. The club is the most important unit in the GAA ...

Re: Senior A and B Hurling Championships 2020

Well done to the lads bringing us the stream of the game. It was great to have a game to sit down and watch this evening. KK can be very happy with the way they pulled through in the end. Birr had a strong start, but seem to be over reliant on Eoin Cahill scoring from placed balls. Once KK cut out t...
