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...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

Does anyone know the ins and outs of Seir Kieran's proposal to have a 10 team SHC?? It seemed to get no traction? I'd presume the key gist was that Seir Kieran get to be senior again. The rest was minor detail, in their eyes at least. Facetiousness aside for the minute, that's pretty shameless stuf...

Re: U21 Hurling

Timber your name is very apt. You have a chip on both shoulders with regards to players from "North" Offaly not getting a fair deal in the past. The facts speak for themselves. It's only in the last few years we have really seen clubs from there making a big impact in the A grades at underage. It's ...

Re: Newspaper Articles

All fundraising for the Faithful Fields was independent of the County Board. The county board were handed the keys on the day of the official opening. It was all spearheaded by Kieran Keenaghan, with others such as Duignan, Colm Cummins, I think, etc. The well is small in Offaly, but the faithful f...

Re: 2018 NHL

Fitzgibbon teams are under massive pressure to win. They do not care where you are from as long as you are good enough . I couldn't agree more. A lot of nonsense being spouted here about Offaly players being discriminated against. I see it a different way. Because of our low standard now, our bette...

Re: Club Managements 2018

Late in the day not to have management teams in place for Raheen, Rynaghs, Walsh Island and Brigids The Rynaghs football job is a bit of a poisoned chalice, unfortunately, as one of the Rynaghs lads on this said, it’s a dual club in name only. There was talks of them regrading, thank God that’s not...
