Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

I don’t think Paddy Delaney and Johnny Kelly had a dispute.

Delaney felt he wasn’t getting enough game time and left as a result. Not exactly Israel v Palestine.

Hey, lookit. You can prove anything you want with statistics. How much of the 10-82 came in the Leinster semi-final? So if the problem is conceding heavily all year, well thats your perspective , take out the down game we conceded 76 points in 6 league games, (12.33 per game). Put tailteann in and ...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

They have reached their target for the year. Its a long tine since they returned to training in November, so if they wanted a few days off fair play to them. They all have lives outside of the GAA. Have you had any holidays since the end of October? Next week the club managers will start calling on...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

I’d argue that if you asked the Offaly senior hurlers would they rather hurl the Joe Mac final in an atmosphere like Saturday night in a provincial venue or a soulless Croke Park they’ would select the former.

Probably the same answer from the Dublin and Kilkenny hurlers too.

Around 25,000 expected on Saturday, 18,000 sold so far.

I don't see any decent tickets available. In the Cusack 301 is available and then you have to go to 311.

And in the Hogan 327 and nothing then until 335.

Absolutely dire selection.

Re: Club Football

The town of Edenderry is not what you would describe as a hotbed of GAA a la Rhode or Coolderry. They have a large population but a substantial amount of that is made up of foreign nationals who have zero interest in GAA and as soon as their kids turn 14 or 15 they too drift away from it. With 2 soc...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Adult Ticket €25

Student/OAP €20

U16 €5

I really hope this is assigned seating. As with General Admission it's farcical the amount of seats "reserved" by jackets. It's worse than the Germans, their towels and their sunbeds.
