Re: Offaly GAA is in Some State

Old yellar. You hit the nail on the head. I can safely tell you nothing has changed. It's not the need for new faces, it's to let the ones there do their job. Quite simply the full time staff in offaly are not been let do their job properly. They are professionals, they should be putting forward ide...

Re: 2015 Walsh cup

A couple of replies have been made to my post. In regards to comparing Dublin and Offaly, I meant it from a point of view that no one could name more than 1-2 players off the Dublin senior hurling team. Same now goes for Offaly. No one was really interested in hurling for the Dublin senior hurling t...

Re: 2015 Walsh cup

The problem facing Offaly is not the need for a good manager. The problem is the clubs are unable to produce county hurlers that have the mental and physical skills needed to win. Offaly are now where Dublin were 10 years ago. Dublin got their act together, went away from those who played for the co...

Re: Offaly GAA is in Some State

What came from the open forum that was held late 2014?. I heard it was well attended but the running of it not so good.Was it an " open forum"? From reading the midland tribune, the people speaking are all good, well intended men. But in my opinion, the wrong people. In Kilkenny hurling is the only ...

Re: Allianz FL Division 4 2013

Offaly are years behind in regards of their strength and conditioning. This will take at least a season to get the foundation done and the rewards will be seen 2-3 years into the future. These things cannot be done over night and need to be done over a prolonged period of time. It all depends on wha...

Re: Revolution not reform needed in underage hurling

All squads mentors are volunteers who are managers of their local clubs, or people who have been tapped up to do the the job. A lot of primary and secondary school teachers, current county players and ex county players. Any who is doing a squad is doing it in their spare time. The hurling director i...

Re: Revolution not reform needed in underage hurling

Just reading all the posts and I cant believe some of the stories, in regards to the way ye conduct trials im amazed that ye are as competitive as ye are. To be successful, you have to first organised, have every detail covered. I will give an example of an u-13 Dublin ''trial''. About 45 players tu...

Re: Offaly u21 Hurling

Was at the game, Offaly will really have to move with the times, Dublin 21s are on the same training time line as the seniors. Very fit and strong so that they can step into senior hurling no bother fittness wise any way, the warm up by offaly was a joke beyond belief. Dublin was timed to the minute...
