Re: Senior A and B Hurling Championships 2020

This has come up before lads. KK is a huge area! If not split they should have 2 teams in underage at most levels - A&B. They must have 6 feeder primary schools? They compete against some clubs who might have 1 or 2 feeder primarys. Special note re Ballinamere's emergence at A underage level in last...

Re: Senior A and B Hurling Championships 2020

With the Covid-19, there will be guys around playing club hurling that would outwise have gone traveling. Look at the impact d horan made for St Rynagh last year. I hear both Dan currams and James Gorman are back home for kk. Not sure whether that true but kk will have Tom Spain who transferred thi...

Re: Senior A and B Hurling Championships 2020

Two even enough groups in the senior hurling this year. Hard to see much between Birr Coolderry and Clareen. Would expect KK to advance but could be beaten by either of 3 others in group. I expect Clareen to be bit stronger than people expect after great run last year. Will have done wonders for mor...

Re: RTE team of the Sunday game era

A lot of this involves token nominations to cover all counties. Another caveat is that they have to have won an All Star. For example, Karl O'Dwyer is there as the Kildare rep but you would never pick him ahead of Peter Brady, Niall McNamee or Brendan Lowry. However Lowry is the only one of those t...

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

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...
