Re: Offaly Minor Football Team Named

[ Geansai Gorm probably hasn't attended one of the 20 plus games that this management have organized in preparation ] How many here have? Stupid question, I don't have anyone on the team and I'd say most parents haven't been to may of the games either. Yes, the county panels are well prepared in the...

Re: Offaly Minor Football Team Named

Oh dear, no scores from play, and defensive football. For me the point of minor and underage teams is to provide a platform to develop football skills and talent. Playing blanket defence robs young players of any spark of individuality or expression. It shocks me to hear young county teams play like...

Re: Meath v Offaly 12th May 2019 @3pm Navan

In fairness to both Meath & Kildare, they went down the road of centres of excellence years ago, forgoing any development work on their county grounds to give their county teams the best training facilities. Now they are both in the planning for re-develping their grounds. Offaly and Laois did it th...

Re: Additions to County panels Football and Hurling

Was at Wheery V St.Vincents this morning in U20. Cian Johnston played, scored 1 point. Only I know who he is, I would never pick him out of all the players on view as a potential county player. He was well marked by young Bolger from Daingean, made Johnston look very ordinary. To be fair, conditions...

Re: Intermediate Football 2019

This whole championship is down to how Rynaghs approach this. If they give the footballers the time and support they should be winners here, they should be a comfortable Senior B side.
Brigids / Bridge / Ballycommon / Daingean on their day capable of winning but not if Rynaghs take it serious.

Re: O’Byrne Cup 2019…ish

Offaly 0-11 Kildare 1-20 More telling, Half -Time OY 0-04 KE 1-14 Can't say men against boys as both sides looked the same, Kildare had a lot of U20s on show. Better movement, better game plan and some better players. Second half was disjointed as the visitors mada a raft of changes as the match was...

Re: O’Byrne Cup 2019…ish

I see Kildare make 8 changes from team that eased to win over Carlow. Only 4 players from starting team V Kerry in Super 8's, and I think 5 or 6 of this years U20 All ireland winners start. So very experimental from Kildare. Hope Offaly go with the team they proposed for last week, it included at le...

Re: O’Byrne Cup 2019…ish

Take exit 10, turn left and straight through roundabout and next left for pitch.
Turn left at roundabout and park at Sports Centre as parking will be tight at the grounds.

Re: Leinster Club - Football

Great to see Shamrocks and St. Brigids reaching the finals of the Inter & Junior Leinsters. Best of luck to both sides. Great for the county to bag a title.

Re: Additions to County panels Football and Hurling

If development squads are doing their jobs correctly, what club somone is from should be irrelevant. That's it in a nutshell. Esentially all underage players are equal until they start playing adult football /hurling. Certain clubs due to their size and status (senior etc) will have better conditio...
