Brosna Gaels are Doon, Pullagh and Ballycumber I think. If  thats North Offaly then so is Belmont.

What's harder to believe is that Mayo will be playing Offaly next year in hurling.
Mayo have 5/6 new clubs in the last 10 years.
Offaly have spent the last 10 years bemoaning everything

I know which county is on the way up

Coming and going though. Only 4 adult clubs. Caiseal Gaels are on the rise to minor this year, Ballyvary, Ballina and Claremorris only play underage to u-16. As of this year.

Do Ballyvary and Ballina have separate teams all the way to U16? I thought that they were combining at some ages with Ballyvary providing majority of the players

Yes, Ballina merge with Ballyvary at under age! Ballyvary have got their act together again and are getting numbers at under 10 and below.

Brosna Gaels, although a nice concept is doomed. Underage neglected for years. Chris McDonald transferring to Ballinamere and Spain looking to join KK are certainly not helping matters.
Tubber also, AZ.

Tullamore,Shamrocks, Clodiagh Gaels the most easterly (north to some) teams.

Shambles.
Aye. Unfortunately, there are many layers as to why we are where we are.
Not even remotely covered by the above link, or even the Liam Hogan interview on radio 3.

Bond? That was supposed to be sarcastic, but it’s gone beyond that. The reality is that the shit is on its way to hit the fan. The odds are very much so stacked against us.

I’d love to see a management team that contains Pat Fluery, if only in the background, a la Darby last year. According to the former hurlers that I’ve talked to throughout the years, he was the best manager they had.

4 points down at half time but it’s not about this match

“When the college in Birr started to slip, we should have asked why.

We last appeared in a Leinster minor final in 2003 and under-21 in 2007/8. Because clubs like Birr and Killoughey and St Rynagh’s were doing so well, it masked underlying problems. It is easy to be wise in hindsight but Birr Community School began to fade in around the time Brother Denis [Minehane] * retired.

“There was no succession planning. And that is my fault and the fault of others in south Offaly clubs that we almost left it to Brother Denis and other teachers in Birr Community School to do what we should have been done. They were the providers of the majority of the players on teams. When that started to slip, so did Offaly hurling.”

Where was the funding to develop hurling in the midlands counties?
Being spent in Dublin

As much as you have a point but it has to be said the Dubs went to Croke Park with a plan. The Offaly's, Antrims of the world didn't so Croke Park didn't throw money at a non existent process.
Antrim go with a plan and get funding, that's how it works.

the problem is Offaly have put together about 5 plans for the county
