Re: Div 3 South predictions & general comment

Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

I watch with interest some of the commentary here as I would not be as close to the hurling situation although I go to watch them from time to time. Leading up to this I would have been concerned with the situation in relation to the number of so called big names who had refused to commit. There is ...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2021

Harsh comments on Conor Clancy. I think Dempseys retired and so has Breeder, so they are irrelevant to any discussion. Clancy did what Sean Cavanagh did v KK, (maybe a little more violent!), but did what he had to for the team, and I havnt seen a lot more to say he doesnt have temperament. In my opi...

Re: Shane Lowry

"If every one of us in county could find a way to up our contribution in whatever avenue possible we'd see improvements".

It's a simple message but one that each of us would do well to remember!!

Re: 1996 Leinster Hurling Final

I remember being away in the Canaries for that game, sitting in the sun in a bat with the match belting out on the radio and most people as always roaring on opposition. Last few minutes they pulled away. In fairness they were a side (Wexford) who had been through the mill down the years and some gr...

Everyone in the county knows whats driving our numbers up, but you can't call them out.

Re: 50 years on, how Offaly won the 1971 All-Ireland final

Super stuff POTH. I genuinely didnt realise the success we had at minor and u21 back then! And whilst its great to be in the Leinster minor now this year, it shows how times have changed. But that's put a pep in the step here for the day anyway and as I start me planning for the (hopefully soon) coa...

Re: Maughan & O' Malley / Dunne & Maher

Jaysus don't poke the bear First Touch. A riot in Offaly is the last thing we need...we have some serious high numbers now? Them fuckers in Dublin should be done for treason, ridiculous! Targeting Gardai with fireworks. I'd give out about the students in Limerick, but jaysus, it's hard on that age g...

Re: Offaly SHC 2021

The question is can we afford to not live Green??? Hopefully with the movement towards remote working, (if it is fully embraced) we could have a situation where rural areas are revitalised? This has to be the ambition of every TD for their regions...feck sake it took a pandemic to provide a bit of o...

Re: Maughan & O' Malley / Dunne & Maher

Johnson having an operation, not sure how long out for. Lee Pearson & Cathal D have 2 years u20, Bill Carroll, Chilly Donnelly, Aidan Bracken, Kevin Mcdermott all worth a look. My point is that Maughan has a lot of similar type players. These guys can offer something different. Man markers, hard run...

Re: Club Managements

They have the aw material alright, Brady would be nuts to go back in and might not be the right move for the club either. Fresh blood needed but patience needed also. Tullamore have the potential over next few years, serious talent coming through and Ken Furlong cutting his teeth well at minor level...

I think he is referring to the obligatory "row"? No?
