Monday morning now and no fixtures.. I heard yesterday in OCP that they wont be happening until Tuesday night and out Wednesday..

What a f***king joke.. They should have been able to release the next 4 rounds fixtures over two months ago.

Fixtures for all rounds of leagues are on the attached link - only thing to be announced is date and time.
All clubs know who and where they are playing next week.

Yeah I Seen this. This could have been completed in a click of a button. Not rocket science.

Clubs know they are playing league game this weekend but could be Friday Saturday or Sunday.. More than likely Saturday or Sunday. The master fixture plan is out a long time now..

Don't know why county board are waiting so long to decide date and times..

All players have lives outside of GAA, especially with work and family.

Meeting on a Tuesday and announcing on a Wednesday is just not fair to players and teams trying to prepare.

The needs to addressed. There is no reason why the county board couldn't make these times and dates when they met last.

Here's a better link to the Offaly GAA fixtures and results site, the one I use to look up such things.
http://people.gaa.ie/club/offaly/

And I'd say the most difficult thing this coming weekend will be to find playable pitches. I am told by people who know these things that land has rarely been as wet, even high ground. And the unsettled nature of the weather looks set to continue.
