Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

I’d love to hear the rationale for a 7:15pm final on a Saturday. I can only assume TV coverage? Lads, a fantastic win. Well done to to all involved. The county is very proud of you all. Reflecting on it, I think there is still loads more learnings to be taken and room for this squad to improve part...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Best of luck to all involved. Its going to be a massive challene tonight. A very very strong Dublin side and they have alot of momentum and then recent familiarity with O' Moore park from the Galway game so there is alot going on their side. And with Dan Ravenhill out it could be argued that the Dub...

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

Yes these teams met a minor level in 2021 in nowlan park. Kilkenny had a comfortable 3.23 to 1.16 win. Factor in the loss of Ravenill who is our probably 1 of the best players in this group and his size. Kilkenny have been preparing a while now for this game knowing it was coming and some of their b...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Yesterday was nothing to do with tactics. Dublin are on a different level physique wise. It was like Dublin seniors playing the Dublin minors in a challenge match. I know a lot of the Offaly lads and I know the work they put in at training and even the days they aren't training . I'm not sure how D...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

I think it's fair to say Offaly Laois and westmeath there is not too much between them all. I think some lads are getting ahead of ourselves with some performances in the league but really we were playing mostly second string teams. We have improved but I also think Laois and Westmeath have too. Th...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Jesus, two teams who would see ourselves on par with realistically. After decent ish performances in the league them results don't do anything for confidence, worrying. Jaysus boys. Hammerings from Carlow and Antrim. Thats a pretty ominous sign coming into championship. I do worry that we are well ...

Re: U20 footballers 2024

Boys just go out an win the shaggin yoke. Focus on winning and let everything else work out if its meant to work out. Ive seen too many poor teams go out and beat Offaly teams. just focus on getting the job done and winning the game.

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Fair dues i admire your confidence. Id say at this point that westmeath are joe mc favourites, give their arguably better performances against a similar level of opposition that we’ve faced. Westmeath will be favourites for the Joe McDonagh, and Offaly have made significant progress this year. Thos...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Yes as the boys suggest id imagine hogan will play in the full back line. In general the half back line needs to have more structure. its well and good to have nice footballers who can push forward but its leaving a gap down the centre and then if wing backs are more used to be playing as attackers ...

Re: Junior A Hurling Championship 2024

Always a decent championship. plenty of decent standard teams. Strange they left it with 11 teams and uneven groups? I think both carrig riverstown and shamrocks both gave a number of walkovers last year and with there being a junior C championship this year, those 2 should of been dropped to junior...

Intermediate Football Championship

Intermediate football looks like it could be competitive. Question. Will st rynaghs have the players from their minor championship winning team that are from outside the club? a few big strong lads that are potential future adult county players
