Re: 2015 O' Byrne Cup

Nice to start the year off with a win. Helps to build up a positive atmosphere all round. A decent performance away to Dublin would do nicely on Wednesday. :)

Re: Offaly GAA is in Some State

Four months on from the meeting in Birr and what has been achieved? (3 coaching sessions by Martin Fogarty apart) where is our blue print on going forward? where is our strategic plan? Where is Offaly's pathway to success? What resources are been put in place to achieve success? Where is the player...

Re: Offaly Hurling Championships 2014

I'm not sure about this. The Leinster GAA site says the Dublin Junior representatives will contest the Leinster Junior championship. It also says the Dublin Senior 'B' or Intermediate representatives will contest the Leinster Intermediate championship. There is no Dublin team in the draw for the Sp...

Re: Offaly Hurling Championships 2014

Leinster is set up nicely for Shamrocks. First out of the hat, they are at home all the way up to and including the final. The Kilkenny representatives are on the opposite side of the draw. The Dublin representatives are first (who I think is Clontarf) while the winners are at home to the Carlow re...

Re: Offaly vs Tipperary - 2014 All-Ireland SHC qualifier Rou

Can't believe Sky Sports are showing Offaly again. I think they're mad. Let's hope Tipp take Offaly for granted, are over-confident. Let's hope Offaly improve an awful lot, play out of our skins and management have much better tactics in place. I really fear if Tipp do get a run on us - they won't l...

Re: OFFALY UNDER 21 HURLING

Sad to say but TG4 should have shown Dublin and Westmeath game. Was even thinking this earlier in the week. We need to look at what Clare (Waterford & Laois as well to an extent) did over last few years and see what structure we could put in place with 5 year and 10 year plans - we need to make sure...

Re: OFFALY UNDER 21 HURLING

Better from Offaly but Wexford stopped hurling 15 mins ago. Don't know why they took off Mulrooney - he was trying hard.

Re: OFFALY UNDER 21 HURLING

I'm sick - that was a shocking 1st half of hurling from Offaly. Can't believe how bad we are. The game itself is slow and poor and we can't score more than 2 pts. Clare would be at least another 10 pts up on us at this stage!

Re: Offaly v Kerry 12 April Thurles

Having looked at the team I'm now suddenly worried about this fixture. If we do play a sweeper against Kerry - we might as well forget about it! Would be a complete joke. I still can't believe we played with a sweeper with the wind against Antrim!

Re: Offaly V Antrim part 1

What a disaster for Offaly hurling- losing 1-18 to 1-14. We scored 3 pts in 2nd half- 1 from play. Have 1 last final chance to save this season and the future of Offaly hurling more than likely against Carlow. I wouldn't be overly confident of our chances of surviving- will the game be away or at a ...

Re: Offaly V Antrim part 1

Happy with that team to play Antrim in game 1. Sid is right to not play his first choice 15. Good chance for some players on the fringe to make an impression! Shane Dooley needs the match as well to help with fitness and touch!
