Re: Offaly GAA - in Crisis?

Just seen on facebook the hurling review committee have resigned en masse. This, and Pat Flanagan's interview: GUB rather than GUBU, although the scale and proximity of these revelations may indeed be unprecedented. I would have always made allowances for people on the board given that I would not k...

Re: County Management Stability

I'm presuming (never a good thing to do as far as Offaly GAA is concerned) that they have a backup plan in place and they know who the next manager is going to be. Flanagan, as previously stated, brought stability and direction to the team. Player power - committee power? According to one tweet I re...

Re: Offaly vs. Waterford 2017 Hurling Qualifier

Just saw a tweet from Laois GAA congratulating their u15 hurlers beating Offaly today- A 6-19 to 2-6, B 2-16 to 11. Club first. Primary school augments. Secondary school develop further. Development squads...develop. County minor, county u20, county senior. A chain is only as strong as it's weakest ...

Re: Offaly vs. Cavan 2017 Football Qualifier

Best of luck to the players and management tomorrow. This could be a pivotal game. Win, and it's a decent scalp and heading for the next round with a spring in the step. Lose, and the fallout will be significant.
Best of luck to all.
Just go at it, hell for leather...

Re: offaly team versus westmeath

Up to halftime, I thought it was looking good for Offaly. Offaly didn't waste too many speculative opportunities in the first half: there was 3 attempts from Westmeath that hung up in the breeze. There was a couple of occasions in the first half where I'd have liked to see a Brazil/ Donohue overlap ...

Re: Offaly v Westmeath. Leinster Minor Football.

Hard luck to all the players and backroom team- no-one will be hurting more than them about what would seem a premature end to the year. Kildare are on course for 3 in a row, and Dublin's 'Blue Wave' and scale means they'll be perennially there or thereabouts, but beyond those two, Offaly are at lea...

Re: Hurling development squads [Split from Walsh Cup]

I haven't seen the hurling pathway document, and and obviously therefore can't comment about it. One comment about it a few posts back didn't exactly inspire confidence, but again that doesn't mean it's good, bad or indifferent. From those that have seen it, what is the impression? I'd worry that it...

Re: U21 football

I know exactly how much work the lads did to get to the level they did, and believe me, it was nothing short of incredible. Having only got together in late December, to get up to match speed is a credit to them, and a testament to their application, and also a reflection on the potential within the...
