Well Done Offaly Hurlers.

(Oldest Posts First)

If ever a hurling county needed a boost in 2019 it is the Faithful. And after a series of disastrous showings at most levels they got that G up on Wednesday night when overcoming a highly rated Dublin under 20 selection in the Leinster championship. A great performance and hopefully the start of a revival for the midlanders. The GAA and hurling cannot afford Offaly slipping into the doldrums.

Savage performance and unlucky not to win it in normal time by all accounts.

Great to have a bit of positivity back about hurling especially when the footballers are flying.

Carlow rising??? ;)

Huge win. 24 of the panel are underage again next year which bodes well for the future. We will be fancied to beat Wexford now.

"Slipping" into the doldrums? Unfortunately they've been well and truly marooned in the doldrums for a long time now. Like most hurling fans I would like to see Offaly come back as a major force in the game but it's a long road back.
