Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Great result.

Whatever about the next day, that result guarantees us another QF next year and no preliminary round.

And it’s always great to beat Laois.

Hopefully we can do the double on them next week.

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Left that one behind. 4 up with a penalty to go up by 7 with 5 mins to go and Ravenhill blazes it wide. I know he is the designated penalty taker but he hasn’t pucked a ball all day and was clearly injured. Ref then gave Galway a couple of soft frees, which coupled with Offaly stopping to hurl culmi...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

First off you chose the personal insults first!! Secondly I'm not argumentative I'm stating a point and I believe it is unfair pressure and "expectation" on this team when this kinda of stuff is said .. imagine going to Parnell park, beating Dublin and then being criticised as a young fel...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Confidence will be high though after a surprise win in Parnell park, while we won't win the game. Why won't we win the game today? And why was the result in parnell Park a "surprise" ? We're playing Galway? We were playing Dublin in Parnell park? Any day any Offaly team beat any Dublin te...

Heard similar.
Conor Doyle would be a massive boost to have back, anyone know if he is far off? Hurled a bit in goals with UL freshers this year due to injury.

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Behaviour of the Dublin sideline was also a disgrace throughout the game. I suppose that's what is to expect going to Parnell Park. Out of curiosity, in what way? Abuse directed towards Offaly players and management and linesman. Outright encouragement of the filth that went on. Manager took down t...

Tweaked his hamstring but had already been on the end of brutal belts from the Dublin backs. Behaviour of the Dublin sideline was also a disgrace throughout the game. I suppose that's what is to expect going to Parnell Park. The scare from Dublin might be exactly what Offaly need to bring them back ...

Re: U20 footballers 2024

Drying out after yesterday . The first half performance would confuse the Brightest scientist at NASA Great spirit in the second half Louth had some decent players . Our goalkeeper made some great stops . On to the Kildare game next Tuesday. Yesterday's late change of ground is the reason we need t...

Re: Shane Dooley Retirement

It would be fair to say that Shane Dooley would have been a great addition to any Offaly team when in his prime. His scoring totals speak for themselves. A household name when we hadn't many. He probably had every right to pack it in a number of years ago, and was probably more an indication of how...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

For Offaly to go down, we would first have to lose to a very poor Limerick.
Wicklow would also need to beat Antrim.
Both of these are unlikely to happen, never mind for both to happen.

Re: Club Managers 2024

Think it’s Paul Keane from Adare over Shinrone. Managed O’Callaghan Mills last year. Likes to train most nights a week by all accounts. You’d wonder is that for the players’ benefit or his. Shane Curley from Four Roads doing the training with Belmont. Think Gary Flannery from Shannonbridge who is no...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Very positive result in Birr, heartbreaking not to get the win. Clare had to go to the big guns after half time (Reidy, Cleary, Shanagher) to bring them back into the game with the wind. Only time Clare led was in the 75th minute when they scored the winner from a very soft free against David Nally....
