Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

Probably going to be ate for saying this, but are people getting carried away in thinking that a Kilkenny coach will be the answer for Offaly hurling. Yes Brennan went in and had a good year with Laois but Laois have been working hard for a number of years to improve things. He would not of taken on...

Re: Leinster Under 20 Hurling Championship

I think we need to back the great result v Dublin with one more win otherwise it will be forgotten about it and not much benefit too us. Hopefully we can. Agreed. Really need to build on that win. Wexford will be on a high and need deflating. Like any Wexford team lads here will have hurled against...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

Birr dont even train for football and have reached junior finals and semi finals and almost went senior about 7 years ago what's your point?? North Offaly people are just as arrogant when it comes to south clubs playing football. We need everyone doing well but if the so called traditional clubs ar...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

A shift me hole one U20 team that has more North Offaly fellas isnt a shift. Look at the senior championship 7 of the clubs are from the south and next year there will probably be 8 again. Yes we need hurlers from all over the county but realistically you need south Offaly clubs doing well to stand...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

we will leave Tommy there in fairness to him hes doing a great job.. You don't think Tommy Byrne is a good chairman - we get it. There's no doubt that there are serious black marks on his tenure, and everyone (myself included) would like to see a contest for the position in November, that's a viewp...

"Thank these people for their time and efforts over the years, but it really is time things changed on the board. If you want to act in the best interest of Offaly GAA, then step down honourably and give the opportunity for real efforts to be made to get the best people leading us out of the mess" ...

Re: Leinster Under 20 Hurling Championship

Lads complaining about very few from the south on the team should really take a step back and ask themselves what the hell are the traditional hurling clubs doing so. Maybe its time they got the finger out and put in a real effort in developing the players. It is worrying that the likes of birr, coo...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

Bottom line is county board has to be held accountable for the absolutely abysmal standard of Offaly hurling. And football isn't much better. They are the ones who have the power to put structures in place. Every manager that comes in seems to have negative comments on their dealings with them. COMM...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

Best of luck to kevin. he took on a very difficult job. a good guy. If Offaly are ever going to tackle the problems that are there, id hope there is a major cleanup on the board. If managers of teams are being made accountable for these performances, its about time the head of the county board was m...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

Offaly will go into both games with Leix and Westmeath as underdogs. No question about that. We are where we are. Talk of the lack of proper promotion of this competition is valid but Offaly have much bigger things to be focusing on. Let the organsiers worry about the competition. Offaly need to jus...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

http://hoganstand.com/Article/Index/297915?county=National Interesting to see Offaly are now perceived as being lowly ranked at 14. Below Laois, Westmeath and Kerry. Its probably hard argue with that to be fair. As sad as it is to say, but Laois and Westmeath are strong favourites for the upcoming g...

Re: Joe McDonagh cup

https://hoganstand.com/Offaly/Article/Index/297358 Who agreed a contract for a coaches services to end at the end of the league? A clueless agreement regardless of whether he walked himself or was pushed out when the contract elapsed. As subtly pointed out earlier, Loughnan and the country see Offal...

Re: Transfers

Personally I cannot understand lads transferring away from their home club. Especially in this case where the clubs are so close to each other. If a player was moving a couple of hours away then yes if you have a family and time travelling doesn't suit.
