Drumcullen, I think.
I think they wished the pair of them luck in the Fitzgibbon on the notes in the Tribune.

To put perspective on Offaly's Fitzgibbon contribution, Tommy Doyle, Derek McNicholas, Robbie Greville, Niall Mitchell and Niall O'Brien were all central to DIT's win over UCD last night.

A few things I’d like to see on Sunday.

A better retention rate of puckouts. I can only imagine the stats are abominable. The wonder is that Offaly could be at such a deficit of possession and yet cross the Limerick end line 25 times (10 scores and c 15 wides). And you’d wonder what they could do if they even had 40% of the possession. Too many Offaly puckouts missed their target by a considerable distance. Perhaps Eoghan Cahill would be a better distributor.

The midfield helping out. Offaly’s midfield tend to remain between the two 65m lines, and against Limerick, maybe that is a reflection of the pressure they are under. Look at Limerick, picked off so many scores with an unmarked midfielder moving up to take a pass on the run from a half-forward with his back to goal. Slaughtneil did it to good effect in last Saturday’s first half. Cuala too. It’s difficult enough to defend against; and there’s no such thing as a wasted run, as they say.

Freetaking. As it says on the tin – a ‘free’ shot. Too good to be passed up. Conversion rate needs to be improved.

And no foolish, eejity, yellow cards, second yellows or reds.

Improvement in the above would do for now.

Paddy Delaney named at midfield, looks like we are deploying a sweeper

According to Kevin Martin Offaly will go 15 on 15 tomorrow. I can't see the point of a sweeper in hurling,it did not work last season. Sweepers are for floors.

Looking forward to heading to Galway tomorrow.
We had one good bad day and one good day so far..
Missed too many free the last day lost the midfield battle. our back ended up one on one too often,
but the other side was we created the chances and never gave up.
A week to recoved and prepare after the Dublin game,
Wasn't enough time for a team not used to come down from the high and mental prepare for the next game.
This is something hopefully they have to learn.

Tomorrow game is a good one. All Ireland Champion on there own turf. let go out and give it a go.
A big day for Cahill, Gath and Quinn.
Battle 3 in the War. Let's make the Champion hurt.

kaiserchief wrote:anyone have any inside on the injury list and when they be available.

Lads like Cillian Kiely, Derek Molloy, Sean Ryan, Del Morkan, Paddy Murphy, Conor Doughan, James Gorman, Derek Molloy, Peter Gerathy. See a lot of them with the squad in Croker but not on the 26.

Also seen UCD beat CIT last night and into the quarter final. Podge Guinan hurled at 7 and is captain in a team that has a lot of well known names and even an all star. He is surely on Martins radar.


The above in bold would lead me to suggest that Molloy, and the others are all involved.

I think Enda Grogan is on the panel.
I recall hearing on the WeAreOffaly podcast, Martin said that he was to come back from injury.

Any of these? This is an extract from a post by mrbrightside

Gazza Kelly, Aidan Treacy, Joey O Connor, Sean Dolan (Rynaghs)
Conor Doughan, Michael Cleary, Sean Cleary, Adrian Cleary, JP Cleary (Shinrone)
Adrian Hynes, Kevin Dunne, Tom Carroll, Barry Kealey (Seir Kieran)
Will Malone, Kevin Connolly, Barry Tehran (Coolderry)
Joey Keenaghan, Dwayne Dunne (Clodiagh Gaels)
Paddy Murphy?, Gerry Spollen (Ballinamere)
Andrew Flynn, Eimhin Kelly, Niall Duffy (Lusmagh)
Craig Taylor, Barry Harding (Birr)
David Cox, David Nally, David Kenny (Belmont)
Nigel Dunne, Johnny O Toole-Greene (Shamrocks)
Paudge Guinan (Drumcullen)
Conor Freeman (Carrig)

I’ve got rid of the names that I’m certain are on the panel. Obviously a couple are on the football panel, some are travelling, etc.
