Re: Offaly V Kildare 2nd round of LSFC

On the money going to dublin on the basis of registered players. There is a lot of unregistered players at 4, 5 6 years of age in the nursery and dont get factored in the numbers. There are huge numbers playing the game now in dublin. There are clubs were 4 to 500 kids in their nursery's. Huge games...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

The main driver of kildare hurling now is the total dominance of Naas hurling in kildare. Think there are 12 players from Naas on the panel. Offaly needs Edenderry and tullamore to start producing hurlers. They are the large urban areas that need to be tapped into. I know that's not what the hurling...

Re: Offaly V Kildare 2nd round of LSFC

An extremely well ran County board would have a lot to do with it also. Money well spent. As Eddie brennans off the record comments suggested about laois county board, more to do with good planning and proper planning and strategy in dublin than your suggestion of doping. Offaly county board until t...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

I saw training early in the year and there was lots of cut to it . Well organised, physically tough training. But it was at a slower pace to the tipperary or galways of this world. But what can you do. The players were going as hard at it, as they could.

Re: Offaly V Kildare 2nd round of LSFC

Dublin are skillful, tough and will lay down to no one. Probably do 20 in a row in leinster. As mad as it is to type that, it will probably happen.

Have nothing but admiration for the players. Would never want to slate them.

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

The stats by Brian mcdonnell are very good. The team that kept the ball the most were more successful. Bateing the ball from defence to attack as quickly as possible is not always the way.

Carrig and riverstown with crinkle should have been done years ago.

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

So where do we go from here? Complete change in how things are done at club level. A radical but will never happen change would be to have westmeath, laois and offaly combined leagues. More higher quality teams playing each other at senior level. More player development plans at juvenile level that...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

Ballinamere most definitely. Huge emphasis on coach education.
Kk produce players and lots of them. Do they have a plan in place to produce those numbers ? I would have Edenderry as a progressive club with the GPO initiative and the recent development of their facilities.

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

What club in offaly, since 2015 onwards could be described as a progressive club? Is there any club that could be called that? Only one or two would come to mind for me. I'm not talking about success on the field and trophies been won. But a structured approach to developing gaelic games, developing...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

Fennelly has johnny kelly along side him who would know the club scene in offaly very well and has huge success at club level. Ken hogan woukd be a good appointment but he wouldn't touch this team with a 50 ft barge pole. The reality is, players who put in huge effort just fell short. This is offaly...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

I think your the wanker stuck in the 80s. Davy won a leinster with wexford and should've beaten tipperary and would have gone very close to win an all ireland. So try and not be so blind. In modern hurling you need to be able to run. Like it or not , that's reality. Don't know what happened today bu...
