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...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers Championship Thread

It is bullshit, and rather than going good for hurling, it is going to reduce even further the number of top counties. Bad, on so many levels.
Genuine question POTH - do you think Offaly are entitled to be labelled as a Top Hurling county?

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers Championship Thread

Definite opportunity to secure what would be a morale boosting win for the footballers in the Qualifiers.
Also a chance for Offaly supporters to get behind the team and management who I've no doubt will prepare the team in the correct fashion.

I'm looking forward to it.

Re: U20 football championship draw

' the smallest pick by population would have been that of Wheery We've had this conversation before :D but I stress again that the above nugget is not relevant. Census population doesn't come into it if you have a core group of 30 lads that have been together since childhood. if Wheery had 35 lads t...

Re: Numbers

Nearly 9,000 in Edenderry and ballyfore and they can't put a hurling team together, shocking
There was minor and under 16 hurling teams in Edenderry this year my friend. The foundations are been laid once again for hurling in Edenderry, have no fear.
