Re: Div 3 South predictions & general comment

he's an elite stopper at the heart of the defence, the type of guy you build a team around. Moloney a very good footballer but first and foremost for my money, your centre back has to be a defender and a stopper. Moloney loves barrelling forward and good luck to him. The positioning of David Dempse...

Re: 50 years on, how Offaly won the 1971 All-Ireland final

Brilliant Stats and Facts there POTH. Its not rocket science and the old Irish saying comes to mind , 'Mol an Óige agus tiocfaidh sí' The foundations were laid in the 50's and 60's for what happened in the early 70's. I have to marvel at the fact that people ponder the lack of success at adult level...

Re: Byrne v Duignan

The man running for Vice Chairman is being championed as a great strategist with huge experience of strategic plans. Well the Edenderry development plan 2010-2015 failed to stop hurling becoming extinct in the town after a proud 100 year history. Have to pull first time on this hopping ball.....it ...

Re: Meeting In Tullamore

This 'bring the hurling back to birr' idea is old news and a waste of energy. BNM O'Connor Park is the county ground, and the HQ for Offaly GAA.

Move on FFS.

Re: NHL Division 1B 2019

I know this is a hurling league thread but I'm going to dive in here. I think it is important to be aware that Strength & Conditioning is only one part of the fitness pie. My take on it, for what its worth, is that fine tuning the body in the gym with a combination of a structured weights programme ...

Re: NHL Division 1B 2019

Quite the opposite, it now seems. Now, we all know the coaching and preparation in Offaly has ranged from poor to non-existent for two decades now, but Offaly hurling could do without the coffin screws in the shape of exclusion from their own province. Who is the coaching officer responsible for Hu...

Re: Newspaper Articles

"That's a big job. I don't think there's any such thing as an application form in the GAA for jobs like that . That's something that a chairman, a secretary and their committee will sit down and probably pinpoint somebody that they want to give that job to. You can only make a decision like that or...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers Championship Thread

Really enjoyable evening of football last Saturday. A pleasure to watch a committed and positive display from the Offaly footballers. If we can manage to get our act together at board and management level, Offaly can become a competitive force in football in future years. We haven't stopped producin...
