Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Being hammered by Dublin and being hammered by division 4 outfits are not the same thing, so I'm not sure what the point is there. Also, I didn't suggest anything regarding next year. The county board, players, management will determine who's in charge next year so leave them to it. The physicality ...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Hammered by London, Limerick, Cavan, Wexford and Westmeath in the past 2 years. Go back to the 2000s and we were dumped out of the qualifiers by the likes of Carlow when we were a division 1 outfit. 17 points in arrears in the first half vs Down in 2008. Multiple trimmings from Wicklow. It's pretty ...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Laois rebounding to knock out Kildare and make the semis is a damning indictment of the campaign that we had in the Tailteann Cup. Teams around us stringing results together and getting experience into their players. That is not something that can be placed at the feet of DK even if the results this...

60 hour gap required between games. That's it.

Re: Offaly Under 20s hurling 2024

I would say there’s no hurling club in the county that only plays hurling? Yet there’s about 10/12 football clubs that only play football. Something which should come into focus in order to develop hurling further. In fairness I would have to call out that this is not quite correct. Of this cohort,...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Carlow's relegation confirms that this year's Joe McDonagh cup winners will have home fixtures against Galway and Antrim, and away fixtures against Dublin, Kilkenny and Wexford in next year's Leinster Senior hurling championship. (The reverse of Carlow's fixtures this year.) It's hard not to read t...

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 Senior Hurlers 2024

Discussed over in the hurling championship thread. The winner of Laois vs Offaly plays 3rd place in Munster. Loser plays Leinster. Alternates each year.

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

On the same as the lienster final gaa don't miss a trick Overpriced tickets here we go Would you not rather it to be on with the Leinster final. It’s nice to get the opportunity to be at a game you might not normally go to. Not to mention the increased crowd and atmosphere. Really hope that we brin...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Good solid performance today. Great to see the team keep the foot down when we got 7 or 8 points up. Too often in the past few years we would allow teams back into it. One thing I'm really looking forward to this week is the Laois team selection for their final game. Surely they will pick their str...

Not exactly. The winner of Laois vs Offaly will play 3rd in Munster.

So if Cork finish 3rd they'll be making a trip to Portlaoise or Tullamore.

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Was a long drive back from Limerick yesterday. There’s no denying that this has been Offalys worst year possibly ever football wise at every grade. I had a little look at the club league tables when I got home last night. Tullamore and Ballycommon are the highest scorers in the Division 1 league af...
