Genuine question, presented without comment. Who is going to do this forcing?


Cowen will call bullshit if needs be.

If somebody on here wants to hire me for a decent wage, sure. Otherwise, I think a GAA journalist who works weekends might have a few conflict of interest issues!

I'd assume there's progress, because if there wasn't he'd have walked away.
If you were at the opening today, you should've asked him; he probably would have told you how it was going.

If you're at the football tomorrow, ask him. I'm sure he'll tell you if there's progress at the talks.

Also, bring south Offaly clubs into Football. Bring north Offaly clubs into Hurling.

FOOTBALL
Shinrone/Ballyskenagh/Killavilla U
Coolderry/Seir Kieran U
Crinkle/C&R U
Let Birr have their own
Kinnitty/Drumcullen/Lusmagh U
K/K need to put together an adult team

These are underage amalgamations that I've made. All teams should make a reasonable effort and give every child a chance at Hurling OR Football.
All teams should put an effort in at adult level.
Obviously if an adult amalgamation has to happen, let it, more players playing, bigger pool.
HURLING
Edenderry + Ballyfore A+U
Rhode parish + Clonmore A+U
St Vincent's A+U or A Ballycommon+Cappincur/Daingean+Kilclonfert
St Broughan's A+U
Gracefield- feel sorry for them, seem to be trying. A+U
Does Clodiagh Gaels include Ballinagar+Raheen for Hurling? A+U

As I said above it creates a bigger pool to pick from.

A=Adult
U=Underage

I've been thinking about this idea for a while, please give your thoughts' on the idea or even the amalgamations.

Clodiagh Gaels cover Raheen and Ballinagar for hurling only. Raheen, Ballinagar and Clodiagh Gaels have separate football teams.

I knew the football alright. Wasn't sure about Hurling
