A trend among Willie Maher interviews always draws back to Ďlack of S and C over the yearsí.

So what has been happening in S and C among the senior hurling panel in this time? Since his appointment he says S and C among the group is at a ground level and will take years upon years to reach the standard of the big counties.

I find this statement very worrying.

Clueless. Second to most of the balls. Lucky to be ahead at HT. Best team won and we have a manager who spends his game arguing with the other team management, linesmen or the fourth official. Frustrating night.

I hear some of our GDAs are leaving there coaching roles within the county board aswell.

All leaving bar one. Games Manager heading out the door it seems also. And no coaching officer either

Iím told the idea of a double header was never discussed and the Leinster Express ran with an article off their own back.

Rumours circulating from our Football & Hurling Academy Squads that our Coaching and Games office / staff in disarray with a number of pending departures

Awful Pity to see & damaging for our County, with Offaly and all around us making great strides forwards, backwards at a rate of knots we are going.

How true is this?

Our Coaching & Games department currently not good or active enough with initiatives,
Offaly again today recruiting brilliantly appointing Damien Coleman as Operations manager, the man behind all of Galwayís underage success.

Yes they are pumping money in, but itís being done wisely and theirs a buzz around them, we have plenty of money too,

Talk of the renewed Setanta programme is only piece meal, academy squads have no buzz or direction about them, the overall organisation of the squads is so poor compared even just to Offaly never mind the bigger counties
Simple ideas like the combined schools, more club workshops, academy squad gear, more games, more promotion on social media
Offalyís initiatives around development squads, faithful fields, coaching initiatives are much more active than ours, and getting much more buy on from coaches, players, parents & clubs

Similar on the likes of Wexford, cork, Meath, Kilkenny

What is the actual role of the county board coaching officer when we have a games manager ?

On your last point about the County Coaching officer, what is the actual role of the County games manager? Setanta programme was drove by a volunteer during the summer. The Squads are a shambles, is that the Coaching office or games manager?
Coaching workshops, is that Games manager or GDA's?
From what i can see we have very little leadership coming from our games manager who is meant to be leading our GDA's. Maybe others have more interaction with our Coaching and Games department but from what I can see it's non existent.
