Re: Minor Hurlers 2018

If I read correctly on the Leinster website, If they beat Antrim at the weekend they will have a home quarter final against the bottom team of the strong group. Which will presumably be Laois. Great chance to get to a semi final. Would be great for the county to even get to a Leinster final. Haven’t...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers Championship Thread

Unfortunately the champions league final is going to hit the attendance for both sides. I went to the Galway’s game with 4 lads and none of us are going Saturday night as we want to watch the champions league. Sure the gaa could have moved it to 5 and played the Laois v Westmeath game as a double he...

Re: Development Squads Deserve Respect and a Profile

Offaly drew with Monaghan in the group and went on to beat Roscommon and Louth. Head to head was to be used first if teams were tied, then it went to scores conceded. I think there was 2 groups decided like this. Not sure why. They then went onto best Kildare in the semi finals before losing to Kerr...

Did they not lose to Kildare in the league too?

Re: Hurling development squads [Split from Walsh Cup]

The days of Offaly, or other small counties, competing for minor or under 21 honours are probable gone. The advancement of team preparation, budgets, S&C and the rest increases the odds of a small county getting enough good players to beat,or compete with the bigger counties is now more or less gone...

Re: B championship

I think a B championship is a good idea and can help improve the standard of the championship in the long run. Look at football. All the teams in Senior B and Intermediate have realistic ambitions to win a championship at the start of the year. Can that be said of the hurling championship? If you lo...

Re: Club Championships 2016

So wins for Rhode and Edenderry in Group A in the Senior Football and Ferbane and Gracefield winning in group B I was in OCP for the double header on Saturday evening. Very poor crowd for 2 attractive games on paper. A couple of hundred at best. Rhode looked impressive. They had a gameplan of workin...

Re: Offaly v Laois LSHC Quarter-final, Sunday 5th June

I can't agree with Dooley been poor from play. He single handily won us the Carlow and Laois game with his contributions from play and he set up both Bergins goals the last day. I also feel u are been hard on our half back line and midfield. Gardiner and Ryan have plenty of good ball in the last day...

Re: Offaly v Laois LSHC Quarter-final, Sunday 5th June

I feel the key for Offaly is to play what Laois give them. In the first 20 mins last year Offaly used the shot puckouts, worked the ball up and took their scores. The Laois crowd were getting on their back and things weren't looking too bad. For some reason this stopped and Offaly went fro 10-6 up t...

Re: Newstalk OTB crew badly rattled by 'Uibh Fhaili' chant!

Wooly was just raging Offaly won! And in fairness listening to Ger Gilroy going on about amalgamating counties for the 4,000th time is equally as bad for the ears. Easy to know he is from a bigger county, wonder if he would be so open to the idea of splitting counties with larger populations like Ki...
