Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

A fully fit and firing Rhode senior team (even with its high age profile)would beat London.

Players downing tools in a fashion like today, does not bode well.

The manager is irrelevant in that situation today.

It’s the worst result in Offaly Senior footballers history?

Re: Club Football Championship 2022

Didn’t Edenderry basically ban anyone playing anoy other sports this season if they wanted to play senior football? Ridiculous if true.

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...

Did Edenderry then threaten legal action?
No, we just went down to intermediate.

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

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...
