Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

It's shocking. Details revealed only yesterday (Tuesday), 11 days before the Saturday. The Meagher, Rackard, Ring and McDonagh cups aren't deemed to be spectator sports, don't have sponsors and as a result there is zero promotion of the games. Why did it take so long to confirm the details of these...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

It's not the end of the world. The point at least guarantees we don't finish 3rd and avoid the preliminary quarter final. Our likely quarter final opponents are Wexford, Laois or one of the tier 2 teams, based on the draw. A win today and we would have avoided Kilkenny until a possible Leinster Fin...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Firstly any synopsis of the game has to take into account the woeful conditions this game was played in. There was water lying on the stand side sideline and conditions deteriorated as the game progressed due to intermittent heavy showers. It was a testament to all players that we got such an enjoya...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

For me it’s simple.

The only teams we beat were relegated to Division 4 so we’re showing Division 4 form.

Highly doubtful we’ll beat Laois. They’re big lumps. We are not.

Re: Club Managers 2024

Paul Keane seems to be your stereotypical current hurling manager who enjoys the managerial circuit. I’m sure it’s all for the love of the game. His Shinrone appointment will see him manage a club in 4 different counties since 2017. (At least) Adare (Limerick) Burgess (Tipperary) O’Callaghan Mills (...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

No venue has been confirmed for the Down game. So Newry is as much on the table as Ballycran. Then again so is Portaferry!!!!

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Offaly began the 2019 season as favourites for the Joe McDonagh and ended up relegated to the Christy Ring. It means zero.

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Apparently panel members will get a run out vs clare and u20s won't be involved either. In for a fair walloping on the cards if that's the case. Clare will more than likely use players from down their depth chart aswell. While they haven’t mathematically qualified for the league finals, to miss out...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Offaly will compete in Division 1B of the league next year. The group will consist of:

Offaly
Dublin
Antrim
Westmeath
Laois
Waterford
Plus one more which most probably will be the loser of Cork v Wexford.

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Bookies have it a 10 point spread. Anything less than that is a good day at the office. Cork if they get a run on us, wouldn’t be a team to let up. Inherent self-esteem issues due to a lack of senior success for 20 years while trying to maintain the facade of a traditional hurling county. But that’s...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

There is/are no Joe McDonagh semi-final(s).

The top 2 teams go directly to the final.

Cut throat.
