Re: Offaly Senior A Hurling Championship 2024

New year, new manager, new coach, 4 county seniors starting, same old Belmont. What a vintage display from the Mountain Men of Kinnitty. Shane Kinsella with one of the best scores I’ve ever seen in a 5 minute cameo. Paddy Rigney outstanding on Oisin Kelly. Paddy Delaney imperious at centre back. Kin...

Offaly Intermediate Hurling Championship 2024

Always a very hard to predict competition. You’d imagine Drumcullen will be the favourites. Shamrocks could struggle to bounce back. Rynaghs have plenty of youngsters. Coolderry have the experience of Cathal Parlon, Corcoran brothers and Kevin Brady to call on. Edenderry will hope to consolidate. Se...

Offaly Senior B Hurling Championship 2024

Hard to see past KK again this year, even with their younger lads named for Senior A. They have plenty more off the 20s panel and the likes of Gorman and Currams eligible. Interesting to see how Clodiagh Gaels go after a full year of training and hurling with the club for Keenaghan and the Langtons....

Offaly Senior A Hurling Championship 2024

Sorry lads, haven’t got a chance to do a preview. I’ll hopefully get to it next week. Championship kicks off tonight with Ballinamere and Birr in Tullamore. Great to have all the Senior A games on Clubber. My 4 semi finalists are KK, Belmont, Coolderry and Ballinamere. I expect Rynaghs to struggle t...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Great game yesterday between Cork and Limerick and it was enhanced by a great performance by ref Thomas Walsh of Waterford. Free flowing, not overly fussy etc etc, all the usual sound bites. You may remember he reffed last years Joe McDonagh final between Offaly and Carlow. Dara Maher was controvers...

Really harsh rule on remaining players on a team to have to play extra time without replacing sent off players in my opinion.
I’d imagine you’re in a very small minority who want that rule brought back.

It was a silly rule that was finally replaced this year.

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

If memory serves me right, Emmet Nolan played with Birr last year - is he still in the country? He would be a great addition to the panel next year, an excellent hurler and athlete and God knows we are going to need everyone we can get for next year to stay up. That’s one years hurling from the las...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

I know this is highly irrelevant but make an offaly team only using one player per club ill go first 1. Stephen Corcoran (Coolderry) 2. Ben Conneely (St Rynaghs) 3. Niall Houlihan(Tullamore) 4. Padraig Cantwell (Shamrocks) 5. Paddy Delaney(Kinnitty) 6. Cillian Kiely(K/K) 7. Donal Shirley (Brosna Ga...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Very positive year. At the start of the year, the morale may have been fairly low. It seemed like the loss to Carlow last year was a killer, along with our second underage all ireland loss in a row. Goals at the start of the year for inter county hurling would have been: 1. Win the Joe Mc (achieved)...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Lots of positives to take from today, I thought a lot of lads really stood up when teams of the past would have coasted and more importantly, we kept fighting to the end and got our just rewards. I thought Conneely, the two Kings, Shirley, the two Sampsons, Dan Bourke and Oisin put in excellent shi...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Offaly haven’t yet named a team on social media from what I can see, but Offaly Independent are reporting that Ross Ravenhill & Oisin Kelly come in for Eimhin Kelly & Adam Screeney.

They say that Screeney isn’t on the 26.

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Tickets still available on ticketmaster for Saturday. It would be a real shame if there were only 2,000-3,000 Offaly fans there. I know we have very little chance of winning but a bit of support can be worth a few points and would be really heartening for the team to see. It would be nice to cap off...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Saturday's win was the most satisfying, most important Offaly hurling result in a long, long time. Most of what needs to be said about the game has already been covered. It wasn't our best performance and, yes Laois did have more than enough chances to win it. And then some. However for sheer heart...
