Re: Senior A and B Hurling Championships 2020

Dont want to dampen your hopes here lads but there is a reasonable chance that all GAA activity could be gone for this year...... If the Brits dont get their house in order, this CV is going to be around for longer than we hope and if that happens, then the year could be called off altogether. Cant ...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

lads in hard luck in fairness to them today. They performed well and were well worth 6pt lead after 75 mins. Lots of young lads out there who will learn and develop from today. Ben Conneely is really a class act for me and has grown as a hurler in last 2 years. Id be putting him in FB and build from...

Re: Offaly U20s

Couple of lads in this team capable of going on to play at co senior level. It is a young team and a few (even the best of them) are underage again next year. Off top of my head Jack Bryant, Cathal O Donoghue and Aidan Bracken among others have potential to step up in coming years. Surprised the yo...

Re: Election 2020 laois offaly

So its done and dusted and all settling in to new era. Somewhat surprised by nature of Stanley dominance though expected him to land seat comfortably. Was out on Nolan losing out due to lack of Sinn Fein backing. Think the pro-life stance and leaving Sinn Fein demonstrated her to be very principled ...

Re: Election 2020 laois offaly

I see the first three as home and hosed in Cowen Flemming and Flanagan and in that order. Brian Stanley should also be a shoe in for a seat but expect that he will lose some votes with Portarlington moved into Kildare and won't get it as easy as the othersin situ.... The last seat is a real toss up ...

Re: O’Byrne Cup

I see Carlow IT beat UCC in Sigerson Cup quarter final. UCC featured Kerry's Sean O'Se among other Kerry players while Offaly's Cian Farrell kicked 7 points incl few frees for Carlow IT while Jack Walsh from Gracefield was also in the forwards for Carlow outfit who are now in semi-final......

Re: O’Byrne Cup

Underwhelming performance overall. Longford fully deserved it. They had a lot more spark in second half and were full value for win and were much better than a bang average Westmeath outfit we beat the last day. That said, we had scoring chances in 2nd half we didn't take. Anton took a score in seco...

Re: O’Byrne Cup

Great performance and win yesterday. While you must put in perspective, it was convincing win over a Westmeath team that would look down on Offaly - albeit a slightly weakened Westmeath due to injuries. From observation, I thought Westmeath were woefully negative at times and Offaly were comfortably...

Re: O’Byrne Cup

Wexford absolutely woeful. Ferbane or Rhode would have beat them! Galvin brought his fashionista self onto the sideline, complete with new Dunnes range in skinny jeans, bomber jacket and suede boots! He could have at least thrown on a tracksuit for the hour on the sideline! Offaly played at high tem...

Re: The fixtures crisis - how would you sort it ?

Good question.... Have some ideas, some of which I will touch on. I think the new tiered system in football might alleviate some of the congestion and free up 2 or maybe 3 extra weeks. That said, I wont get into merits / non merits of org of county game and will try stay focused on club. There is an...
