They don’t factor in the u16’ s so always difficult to say but I’d say 15k all in maybe 🤔

O’Connor park has 18k capacity - supposedly only 8000 last week. Hard to where the other 10k would have fitted.
8,000 paying customers PLUS all U16’s.

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Interesting team selection dilemma for Johnny Kelly this weekend...... There is absolutely no team selection dilemma for Johnny Kelly. There shouldn’t be but I’d imagine Kelly will want to play them as his job is gone if they lose. Which if comes to pass shows Johnny Kelly is more concerned about h...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

There's a sense going into this game, based off some of the comments, that we're near rank outsiders for this contest. While nobody can deny the tradition that Kilkenny bring to the table more recent form at underage would suggest that such a side is far from infallible. Tradition when it comes to ...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

https://www.thesun.ie/sport/gaa-hurling/4832699/martin-dolphin-offaly-galway-hurling/amp/ Article on Martin Dolphin from 2019. States that counties in Liam Mc, Joe Mc or Christy Ring could no longer avail of this. So I don’t know how Kerry are allowed. The joys of being part of Munster GAA I assume...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

No, I won't help you out. If the point you're trying to make is that Offaly have no hope, I certainly won't be doing your research for you. These lads were born in 2004, 2005 and 2006. What went on before they were born is of no relevance here, any more than a Minor hammering from Kilkenny in 1968 ...

Since the 1998 All Ireland Final our record in the 3 grades vs Kilkenny is:

Senior - P10 W0 D0 L10

U21/U20 - P? W1 D0 L?

Minor - P? W0 D0 L?

We beat kk about 8 year ago in a walsh cup match in birr
I am referring to championship only.

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

We genuinely could be looking at 10,000 at this game.

At home, Kilkenny, we have a decent chance.

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Clearly Adam Screeney, Donal Shirley, Dan Bourke and Cathal King should have been replaced at an early juncture but that's not the way Leo O'Connor or Johnny Kelly work. And we all know that. And we all know this power play is going to bite Offaly in the ass. Two massive egos who will end up doing m...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Following tonight's results we can be fairly sure we will be hurling in Portlaoise next Wednesday evening one way or the other. Yes the #1 seeds have home advantage but as you quite rightly stated Galway aren't entitled to any home games so if we draw them that will be brought to a neutral venue. An...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Very disappointed but not surprised considering the manager with our team selection for the game tomorrow. Absolutely no need to start Cathal King, Donal Shirley and Dan Bourke with an U20 knockout game on Wednesday night. Particularly in the case of King and Bourke who have been exposed to a very h...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

I'm hearing Dan Ravenhill gone for the season..... The U20 and senior managers should be hauled in front of the county board to explain their selection policy regarding Dan Ravenhill. He clearly pulled his hamstring vs Dublin in U20 Round 1 and was eventually replaced. He then didn’t start in U20 R...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

With Meath up next it would be the perfect opportunity to rest our U20’s ahead of their Leinster Q-Final. However relations between the respective Senior and u20 managers are rumoured to be frosty to say the least so can’t see it happening. Senior management will more than likely use a mounting inju...
