Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

speaks volumes of our loss to Antrim, not a breath puffed on here in any meaningful way about it..we are where we are as the saying goes..

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Was at game yesterday, strange sort of game in ways..goals killed us in particular the quick succession of them..a good performance for sure, the sending off gave them abir more leeway obviously and they did drive on from there to finish...bearing in mind Cahill was off for a large chunk of the game...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Of course i hope Ime wrong, chop and change next weekend away to Antrim, my hunch is we will score another couple of points more than yesterday, will that be enough to win, i am very doubtful to be honest..we will need around 1-15 to be in with a chance of beating Antrim, that's 6 scores or 8 points...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

so we lost by 4...could have been more..we missed some easy chances according to R3...nice to see a few U20s cut their teeth be it unsuccessful and some were subbed off..R3 analysis usual comparing where and what we are lacking etc. with the likes of Derry etc. apparently we are years off of that l...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

said I de give this a go this year again and see how it goes..predictions. .. Allianz FL Division 3 round 1 Clare v Sligo - Cusack Park, Ennis, 2pm - Sligo do appear to be that bit ahead of Clare here, hard to say that considering CLare beat Cork in championship last summer, any other year or old fo...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers 2024

Reading many posts on this topic..we are hardly over crowding the trophy cabinet in many years f late to be not taking the O'Byrne cup seriously (well serious enough. If you get in a position to take a big scalp (be it 3d string) or even win it out you have to take it..come next October when the cha...

We certainly aren't on those teams level at the moment but we will be with time.
And Wexford beat Kilkenny..

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

It maybe our smallest defeat of the year against one of the percieved top teams, be it 15 minutes shorter than all other games we play this year (or over next 4/5 months rather with this 'sponge' system we have)

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

I admire your faith, beating the above teams in minor is important but so far bar Laois we do come a cropper against the others and Laois too by times..Kilkenny is a totally different animal, as Carlow found out last night be it with both teams in experimental mode but make no mistake Kilkenny were ...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Kilkenny whacked Carlow tonight, Offaly would probably have gone toe to toe with Carlow and maybe sneak a win..the gulf is massive and i fear its too big to close now..just my obs..

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

From what I could make out, we seemed to be miles off it again. Fog probably played a part. Looked a bit more like what we might expect as the starting 15 this year but I noted the abscence of the ravenhills and brian duignan still It seems such an ardorous task to get tbe ball upto scoring territo...

Re: Offaly Senior Hurlers 2024

Under the circumstances a refixture is the only fair outcome. Galway may claim they had their noses in front, but the recent passing of Johnny Flaherty should remind us that Offaly closed out the 1981 All Ireland final with 1-6 unanswered. In 1981 Galway were the defending All Ireland champions and...
