Re: Meeting In Tullamore

the county board probably should meet with the group, I seen before in GAA where anything contraversial in brought up at AGM's or whatever, the matter is "left" to an adjourned meeting, then the wagons are circled, calls are made behind the scenes, peoples points of view mysteriously change and low ...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

he scored 1-03 I think...he is way more effective out the field. Rynaghs will probably put Ben Conneely on him which will be a different kettle of fish than he has encountered to date, Kevin Brady struggled big time with him and went off injured I think after..Belmont are the form team and on form s...

Meeting In Tullamore

just wondering what peoples views are on the above meeting reported in MT and other media this week, is it a good time to be shaking things up on our county board with what will hopefully be a good appointment with SH management and SF...interesting to see how things pan out with it...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

after a team wins Senior B/Intermediate (depending on county structure) and become Senior A all the headlines are "??? can enter 2 teams in the SHC next season" but it never happens..interesting to hear it was tried in Tipp...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

I always think when and if a team win a senior B and go Senior A, and they already have a Senior A team, they should have a stab at fielding a second senior A team...I wonder is that allowed only no team goes ahead with it for logistical reasons..has any club ever done it?

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

both above may be very accurate, regarding the Shinrone wides, they have be very economical this year in most games, I know they scored 22 points in last game plus whatever wides, so even if you chalk off 5 points off their 22 scored last day, 17 points will be in or about enough to get a result in ...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

actually didnt really realise that until I sat down and went through their results, no goals scored in their game against either KK or Rynaghs (top 2 teams) and I think 4 of their goals scored against the now relegation finalists, I suppose that was the point I was trying to make initially, but I ta...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

Birr V Shinrone - I ll go for Shinrone and only just...Shinrone 0-20 Birr 2-12 I think Shinrone forwards IF they can make the space can get enough scores, their lack of goals in some games is a worry..they wont get many if any here against a very inform Brian Mullins, neutral to both, I wouldnt mind...

Re: Next Offaly Senior Hurling Manager

I suppose intially our county QF's and semis and finals in Senior will be alot of what he will go with, I dont follow outside Senior A andkeep an eye on Senior B, outside of that Ime sure there might be a hurler or hurlers playing intermediate/Junior with non so called recognised hurling clubs who d...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

not killing the debate at all but one has to factor in too that older players are percieved as wiser players and can make up for a bit of pace with getting in positon as the ball is being struck into them/puck out rather than waiting for the burst of pace, exceptional players maybe I am talking abou...

Re: Senior A Hurling 2019

I see where Allstar is comming from, ok they drew with KK and Belmont, but I seen them in two games without the players (who were missing) and they were very very poor (no disrespect at all to the young lads who played in them games)..at the games, outside Birr people, most neutrals coulnt name what...
