Why do Offaly only have a squad of 24 and Dublin have a squad of 26?

Great win we didn't play great again but are in a final.
You have to take your hat off to these young men.

Wasn't feeling too great when we had pitch invaders near the end and the game not over I know your young but jesus...as for Portlaoise similar to two years ago in minor final v laois a poor venue..no PA system and about as much stewards ud see in Moystown for a Div 2 league match disgraceful.

Where was the health and safety if something went wrong.

Well done to the squad and management
A few cock ups but we got there.
Let's get our revenge against the stone throwers.

Super win. Dogged it out . Backline superb midfield very good need more from our forwards to help screeney Bourke and Rigney . But look any day ya win a Leinster championship is a good day.
Final fixed for Nowlan Pk @7.15 June 1st
Very late in the evening for an All Ireland final particularly if it’s Cork as the opposition they will have a fair distance to travel late at night home even for Offaly supporters be a very late night home for young kids

Ha ha where you seeing this stuff, no harm to sicken them , put them back behind us in the pecking order , our seniors will be coming for them next and these men will be big part of that! Ref was awful all round but the first 20 minutes was crucial, we managed them well against the wind and while there was only a goal in it at the end, and we had to dig deep, for me it never really looked in doubt once we took charge. Super stuff.

Super evening. The winning of the game was the power play in the second quarter. To go in ahead into the wind set up the victory, and while Dublin got a late goal Offaly had enough done at that stage.

+1 on the PA system. If a stadium has a capability for 20k it needs to be audible for a crowd of that size. It was a joke 2 years ago at the minor final and the same tonight. No one on the terraces could hear that 3 additional minutes were to be played, Maybe if they had then the kids may not have all ran on early.

Offaly will still be a good bit off the Dublin senior team. Remember offaly have one team coming through , an exceptional team at that but one team at the same time. Not all these players will go on to be senior hurlers. You need multiple teams going through to have a real impact.
