Offaly Hurling Best 15 - 2010-2020

J Dempsey
D King D Kenny B Connelly
R Hanniffy G Oakley K Brady
C Mahon S Ryan
B Carroll J Bergin B Murphy
S Dooley O Kelly E Cahill

That's my opinion on the best 15 we had over the last 10 years although some may be playing slightly out of position. If only we could have had them all hurling at once. Thoughts?

From memory, he also played at corner forward v Westmeath in a Walsh cup game in Banagher. Say two years ago.
Good Luck

I was going to say the team that beat Limerick down in Limerick in the qualifier.

But 2008 is outside the time criteria of the opening post. So I'll say the team that drew with Galway in Croke Park in 2010 and nearly beat them in the replay.
Pat Donegan. Signed out of respect for players and all involved with Offaly.

The team that drew with Galway in 2010 and subsequently lost the repay was probably our best squad since the glory days. Joe Dooley had them moving well . the team was full of players that had character and firepower, we were never serious contenders but it was a team that was very competitive.

Not a bad foundation but i think there was some positions that could be stronger.

J Demspey
Chris McDonald, D Kenny, James Rigney.
Derek Morkan, Ger Healion, K Brady.
Rory Hanniffy, D Molloy.
Colin Egan, Conor Mahon, Dan Currams.
Shane Dooley, Joe Bergin, Brian Carroll.

That's my opinion on the best 15 we had over the last 10 years that has played for Offaly in that positions.


I think it would be more fun to pick a best club team over that last 10 years so we can pick the best hurlers in the county.

Kevin Grogan, Peter Healion, James Gorman, Joe Brady, David King, Gary Connolly, Aiden Tracey, Dermot Shortt, Sean Ryan, Dylan Hayden and load more.

EDIT: i can't believe i forgot David Franks. should have been name on my team.

this is going off the topic, is there a 20 man squad outside of the current 30 players on michael fennellys panel ;
that could compete with them in a once off game? with a few months training behind them

David King, Cahill, and Oisin Kelly, Cahill only played one year in leinster championship that was in goal, Oisin Kelly the same. David King corner back :?:

Thinking about this with a few points, here are 35 guys that all could hurl,wish we had half that talent now we wouldn't be in the christy ring cup.
Pity we didn't get this 15 out around 2010 and have quality to come off the subs. It would drive u to drink.
