Re: 2018 Walsh Cup

Fixture moved from SBP to Banagher...I take it Birr pitch lives up to its old failings?

Re: 2018 Bord na Móna O’Byrne Cup

The footballers had a challenge match last weekend v Roscommon. Lost 2-18 to 0-19 They had 9 championship starters from 2017 and a further 3 from 2016. Standouts were 13,14 and 11. (Got it from a Rossie, he’s not familiar with any of our players) We can only guess who were playing. Dunne could have...

Re: Leinster club championships 2017

Well done to KK. Sounded like their best performance in a few years. Hopefully more of the same vs Cuala. Hard luck to Erin Rovers. Great wins to get to the final but unfortunately not to be. Dissapointing that between Bracknagh last year and this final this year that Offaly didn't get at least one ...

Re: We Are Offaly

Here here. A great idea LS and the very best of luck with it! I remember a few years back Midlands 103 did live shows from GAA clubs/communities and discussed the history of the club, the glory days etc. I know this is something I would have a huge interest in listening to. Especially if you are run...

Re: Offaly GAA - in Crisis

Any whisperings from the big meeting tonight?

Isn't there an infamous statement due out tomorrow also?

Re: Offaly GAA - in Crisis

Apparently Liam Hogan called on Tommy Byrne & co to resign on radio 3 today. What a brilliant interview. It would make you laugh if it wasn't so serious. Coaches pulled up by the CB for buying fruit (their own money) for their development squad. Heartbreaking to hear that Liam is lost to Offaly GAA...

Re: Offaly GAA - in Crisis

I have removed the question mark at the end of the Subject line of this thread. Safe to say we are now in a crisis in terms of Inter County Hurling and Football in this county. On the plus side of the ledger we have an amazing County ground and the new training facility in Kilcormac is nearly ready...

Re: Offaly GAA - in Crisis?

Can we go any lower? What does it take for people of Offaly to stand up to this and pressurise the CB properly to stand aside? I am sick listening to people here talk about the democratic process. If something is so rotten to the core people need to stand up against it. Next CB meeting in September....

Re: Offaly GAA - in Crisis?

Can a protest be organised for the next CB meeting? If that chairman manages to worm his way out of this and ride out the storm now that the club championship is back and focus is off him and his cronies, it is an absolute farce. Is this North Korea with their grip on county affairs. HE is an absol...

Re: OFFALY SFC

Make that 9/12 fixtures finishing with 1 score between the sides. It shows the benefit of Senior B championship although I don't agree with the name Senior B

Just to compare, only 3/12 matches have finished with 1 score between the sides in the Senior Hurling championship

Re: OFFALY SFC

I hate discussing anything these days because of the b******t goibg on with the CB and their hidden agendas

BUT i do want to note how our Senior A championship seems to be more competitive than previous years. 7/10 games to date have had just one score in the difference

Re: offaly team versus westmeath

John Connellan has left the Westmeath panel according to Pat Nolan in the Mirror.

Hopefully we have Darby and Carroll fit.
