Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Ah fair enough. Apologies, I hadn't really looked at that thread at all. Receiving the prize of a showdown with Munster 3rd for winning the Joe Mac seems like a much tougher assignment this year than any others for some reason. But I guess that's the way it is. If we win, I think we will be in a muc...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Now that it is assured we are in the Joe Mac final, I was wondering about the all Ireland prelim quarter finals. I know we took a fair auld beating off Tipperary last year, but we were not in any form for playing after the heartbreak in last years Joe Mac final Last year, as we lost, we played the M...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Really happy with the way things worked out for our Seniors and U20 players against Kerry.

I expect we will more than likely line out similar to the KK game. Would others be of the same opinion?

Can you give more detail? I hadn't realised he is carrying an injury.

Superb.....heart warming stuff. Great performances and grit all over the field.

Hoare was my man of the match though. Unbelievable.

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

I fancy whoever wins this game, will win Leinster. It was hard not to be impressed with the ease we brushed Laois aside. They drew with Wexford. I would imagine not a whole lot then between them. Also, When you look at the scores Kilkenny were putting up against Laois and Wexford, quite similar marg...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Can someone give me the latest on Dan Ravenhill?

I'm assuming he will miss Kilkenny match. But is there any chance of him being back at some point for either u20s or Seniors?

I had hoped his injury wasn't serious, but maybe someone here knows more.

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

I'd sooner play our best possible team at both levels. We did it last year with Mitchell and Bourke.

Understand arguments for playing either for one team or the other. But I'd prefer to play our best team in all matches once they are fit and able.

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

3 out of the 4 teams that finish in 3rd place will go into Preliminary Quarter finals. Finishing top 3 should be straightforward for Offaly, but if we're scraping through like that, it doesn't bode well for the remainder of the tournament. My original point stands.....3 out of 4 getting through fro...

Worth noting that 3 teams actually progress from the groups here.

You must be joking. That's ridiculous. A straight knockout open draw would be far better. What is the reason for 3 teams?

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Abroad as usual with work, but listened to the whole match on Midlands radio 3 while keeping an eye on the Limerick Clare game. Was bitterly disappointed after the match. But after sleeping on it, I am a little more clear minded I think. Offaly seemed to be like Clare.....In control for the majority...

Re: U20 footballers 2024

The way I look at it......It is still within Offaly's control. However, they need to win by 8 points or more in order for other results not to matter for them to finish in top 2. Unfortunately Offaly's scoring against Longford won't be counted in the 3-way Offaly, Kildare and Louth tie breaker. Off...
