Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers Championship Thread

It’s a free world and the choice is yours. That’s fine. And I’m not having a go at you here. As for the bigger picture, like, there’s soccer on television every Saturday and Sunday - if you were to go arranging fixtures around soccer on television, nothing would ever be played. And there’s a world ...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers Championship Thread

Offaly season will be over very soon. What would be an idea , is to continue training till end of july/mid August. Stopping Inter county training mid summer makes the gap too big when they come back in October. Need to continue gym and hurling sessions to close the gap with other teams. You might d...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers Championship Thread

In my opinion that sly punch is enough for his dismissal. It was cowardly and potentially very dangerous. The county board were right to oust him at the earliest opportunity. Brian Gavin is not a journalist and this week we saw the difference between a fan with a microphone and a journalist. There a...

You are the one making the claim about their performances outside on OCP. Why don't you back up your claims with some data, rather than rely on others to do the work for you?

Re: 2018 NHL

I watched the highlights of the Limerick match tonight and was pretty disappointed (to say the least) when I saw the sending off with my own eyes. Up to then, I had relied on Midlands Radio commentary of the match to paint the picture. What I gathered from Duignan's post match comments where he desc...

Re: 2018 NFL

This is not a trolling message. Genuinely, is this the worst result in the history of Offaly football? 18 points down to Longford. At home. Few consolation scores to put a gloss on an 11 point loss. Worst I had seen before this was Down at Home in the backdoor around 8-10 years ago, when the players...

Re: 2018 Bord na Móna O’Byrne Cup

Is it just me or does Wexford have the most difficult to pronounce club names of all the counties in Ireland? Every time I look at a Wexford team or see their club results I find myself having to stop several times to figure out the names of their clubs.

Re: Leinster club championships 2017

I wasn't at the game yesterday, but looked at the first half back on the TG4 player today. In the opening 10 mins both teams made plenty of mistakes - failed pickups, dropping the ball, handpasses not going to hand, poor wides... so it is not as if Cuala hit the ground running in the same way Galway...

Re: Rhode Manager

Rhode have a difficult path in Leinster - Laois, Kildare, Dublin, Final. Doesn't come harder than that. If they do get over the Leinster line, it would be some way to do it. It is hard to know where they are at as we don't have too much to judge them on. Unbeaten again in the group and only 2 knock-...

Re: Ballinamere/ Durrow

It is great to see B/D doing so well. They really seem to be getting a lot of the aspects of a well run club in place - good board, good underage coaching, improving facilities to cater for future growth, etc. Of course, they also have some very good players too. I don't know about records but 4 goa...

A. (is Tinnycross (458) Ballycommon or perhaps Cappincur?) Don't take this as gospel, but I think Tinnycross is Tullamore parish. It is the area out around Ballydaly and that general area. B.

Re: Offaly training gear

Training gear is earned, not bought. These guys literally risk their lives to wear that gear and you want to come in and buy it as a gift or something? Or worse still, wear it out on a Saturday night to get the shift? How dare you? How absolute dare you? If Joe Public gets to wear the same gear as o...
