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...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Anyone hear anything about throw in time for Saturday. Football is at 3pm so hurling at 1pm??? I’m fairly sure I read that the hurling is at 5. It is sure to be a sell-out, as the Cork hurlers are on the crest of a wave, as are the footballers having beaten Donegal last time out. Winner of Cork and...

Re: InterCounty Hurling Championship 2024

For anyone else who spent their last few Friday evenings watching the Munster u20 championship on YouTube, limerick might have had some sort of chance with that Shane O’Brien hurling. Didn’t even look a relation of the one on that team. Amazing what being surrounded by all stars can do for a lad. Yo...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Fantastic win yesterday. Heard poor for long parts, but we hurled so well when we were good to get us over the line. Tactics seemed off. But none of that matters now, we got over the line and that’s what finals are for: winning. I don’t know how the ref gave a free out against Screeney in the second...

I said "relatively" not he was useless
If you’re only looking at scores a player got, then there’s your problem.

He wasn’t relatively poor at all.

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

I think the 2 major decisions were Shirley or Sam Bourke and Adam Screeney or Ross Ravenhill. I think Shirley has that extra bit of cuteness over Bourke and is a small bit quicker which probably swayed the decision. I was surprised to see Ross start versus Kerry and he hurled well. Starting Screeney...
