Re: Allianz-Hurling-league 1B

Most of the impressive Hurling came from Carlow, but in fairness to our lads, they didn't panic or give up right to the end. Both sides missed a lot of frees at different stages of the game. Near the end, I was thinking a draw would have been a fair reflection and result for all. The first sending o...

Club Transfers

I just spotted this item on Hoganstand.com. What's the story behind it? Sounds a bit bizarre. Conspiracy Theorists need not apply.

Re: McTague - Offaly should amalgamate with Laois

I dont know how clever Tony McTeague is, but this suggestion has me intrigued. Surely he knows full well that this will go down like a lead balloon, so why is he even proposing it? Is he actually serious? Is it his Doomsday solution just to provoke a response? Is he just trying to get people to reco...

Re: New Offaly Jersey

There's another oft-forgotten special jersey - the one from the famous 1980 All-Ireland semi-final. The best link I (sorry, Google) can find is for this video ... http://nvdio.com/video/Music/video/3zFIAk7vGPY.html I considered this one a bit soccer-esque with the vertical stripes on one side. But i...

Re: New Offaly Jersey

First impression - I didn't like it. But I'll admit that it's "growing" on me as I've looked at the picture again a few times. I think the change of the way Carroll's is printed is a big improvement. I'm all for giving as much credit and return to generous sponsors, and I think this actually makes t...

Re: O'Byrne Cup 2013

A win is a win, and in our case almost a rare thing. Well done to the lads.

We've even made the national media ....

Re: 2013 Leinster Championship Draws

Double Fcuk !!! :x I'm fed up of playing Kildare, knowing that they are sh1te but we still cant beat them. And as for The Cats, maybe we can hope to catch them cold on their first day out ..... except that it will be our first day out too. The whole Draw process has gotten quite boring these last fe...

Re: Offaly versus Kildare 16th June 2012

Living in Kildare for over 12 years, I've always been glad that I'm not a Lily-White supporter ..... because (imho) Kildare are one of the greatest/worst under-achieving counties in the GAA realm. That's why I'll head to Portlaoise on Sunday with some trickle of hope in my heart (though admittedly n...

Re: Corrigan calls for Parish Teams

Has the concept of "Divisional teams" ever been seriously considered in Offaly, as opposed to Parish teams? I dont know all the nuts and bolts of the likes of the Kerry Championship, but I am aware that their Divisional teams are made up of players who can also play for their individual clubs in low...

Re: McManus ends Offaly career

I remember sitting behind him at some match in Croker back in the 90's when he must have been injured (or possibly suspended). He was in the front row of the Cusack Stand, but it seemed like he "kicked" every ball anyway. Even when he was off the field of play, his enthusiasm, support and encouragem...

... and the two Hurling Qualifiers were fixed for Neutral venues, so it looks like Limerick's Hurling game was never going to be in the Gaelic Grounds anyway. :roll: At this stage, I'm assuming it will be possible to buy tickets at the ground on the day.
