Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

a Belmont player kicked int on Conor Mahon on the ground, in the lead up to the first of the 3 throwins that preceeded the mass brawl...Mahon was putting himself about all evening, but you don't put the boot or foot in on any player on the ground, that's what lead to the throw ins, Mahon got up and ...

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

good man, thanks for that..jaysus if that happened its rough..no need for it...Coolderry not going well at all..seen them against Rynaghs, they just never really done enough to deserve to win that game, particulary in 2nd half..Rynaghs were themselves, hurling well in parts, not convincing but just ...

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

theres a lot being said here about this incident, and all sorts of speculation can be inferred, without naming any individuals can someone give an over view of what went on..if its that sensitive that it cant be (mentioned here) I don't think anyone should then be on here or other media forms discus...

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

I don't think Joachim will go near it after his interview after our relegation to the CR..he and Carroll were very p*ssed off with the criticism they got, no need to rehash all that here now, suffice to say he took on the job at very short notice and with best of intentions...didn't work out, we wer...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

Was at 3 Games over weekend..all very similar standard (not brilliant).. Rynaghs got over a Coolderry side who at times looked like they had the winning of the game and then went way off mark, Rynaghs probably deserved to win this game, Shinrone had the beating of Birr all through but were shy in pu...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

My predicitons for weekend Senior A are: Coolderry V Rynaghs : Coolderry 2-15 St. Rynaghs 1-20 (Coolderry need a win so not ruling them out getting their act together either, on form, Rynaghs should have enough to get over this game) Birr V Shinrone: Birr 3-15 Shinrone 2-18 (Shinrone, can they get b...

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

I think we could do a lot worse than Joe Quaid, a journey man?..Ime not totally up to speed with all his various jobs but my main memory of him in management is his latest job with Westmeath prior to that Kildare and Limerick camogie some time back, that's hardly a journey man managerial wise, Offal...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

I heard there were a few incidents ok, a neutral described it along the lines you stated, a Belmont view point was a wee bit tinted he told me...he told me if they played out the match properly as they were going they would have won..both will take the point for the draw no doubt to keep them top...

Re: Offaly Hurling Management A Joke

the writing was on the wall back then, reading from our progress rate since and other articles...1995 since we won a Leinster final..thats 24 years ago...when Offaly made the breakthrough in Leinster in 1980, it was 11 years after the famous 1969 Leinster final defeat to Kilkenny by 3-09 to 16 point...

Re: Offaly v Leix Round 3 Qualifier

RTE are billing Mayo and Armagh and Tyrone V Kildare as ties of the round...I suppose they are right...but commenting on those two games and not even discussing the possible outcomes of Offaly V Laois and Westmeath & Clare...Offaly couldn't have asked for too much more of a bettr draw...regardless o...

Re: Offaly Hurling Management A Joke

read through most of this particular blog, and as I concurred in other posts on here, Offalys demise isn't recent, and there were "harsh reminders" contained in this old blog too...2007 is 12 years ago..thats how long we are struggling, I even seen the mention of "disgraced by Carlow" (no disrespect...

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

its a bit like ex politicians now being chairman of this and that, or being a barrister representing the state in a prosecution, it shouldn't be allowed that existing referees and players commentate on both club and county matches...for example, if you criticize another referee during a game you are...
