Should be a good team, a mixture of two pretty good development squads. For different reasons, there's a few lads not on board.

Some given the ultimatum

 choose minor football over hurling


Young Burke from the Harps,Critchely from Portlaoise are 2 that would have added to it,but thatís what your get when Hurling is actively marginalized in 2/3rds of the county

Just said Iíd pop in and say that dual players are accommodated this year and last year in Offaly. Not preaching or anything, but we were very competitive in the hurling anyway, while decent at the football. It didnít seem to hinder either team, to tell you the truth.

There you have it lads, Offaly are the way forward it seems.

Lost to eventual All-Ireland finalists by five points.
By the way, ye can have Delaney back anytime ye want. The ****.
Well done on almost losing the All Ireland Final

Thanks. Hopefully ye can support us next summer in our endeavours as the only midlands county in the Leinster championship.
Christ, you are some can of piss. And I only keep that one for a select few.

I didn't realise that there had been ultimatums given. That's disappointing, if in no way unsurprising. I wonder what the reaction would have been if the hurling management had given those young lads ultimatae. Different I'd guess.

I was talking about good hurlers from hurling clubs who didn't commit.

Its also what you get when the Hurling manager is so anti football he couldn't accom those players or make it easier to be part of both codes...

Or so I'm told

Well your told wrong

There are hurlers on the football panel who would have made the minor hurling panel,but were given a clear choice by minor football mgmt.

I know of only one chap who when given the choice took hurling over the football,maybe thereís more

What did he do now?!
Essentially told Stephen Loughnane that he wasnít wanted for Shinrone. He transferred to Loughrea and is now with the Galway u20s I believe, after having been with the Offaly u20s at the start of the year. Told Shinrone players not to play with Offaly. Also wouldnít let any of the other Offaly u20s from Shinrone train with Offaly.
As you can see, thatís worked out very well. 😂😂😂

Imagine letting a blow in from Laois run your club like that, I thought Offaly men had a bit more to them than that.

I couldnít care less about Shinrone. Itís the county thatís suffering as a result, with young Loughnane, a fine keeper playing for Loughrea. Iím far from being from Shinrone, I assure you.
Thatís before we come to the Ďsledging Ď. And itís not calling someone a bollox, itís much, much worse.

Heh.

Anyway, easy enough win for the minors today - 2-21 to 0-7. Think Westmeath only got one or two from play? A couple of nice prospects in the half-forward line, notably Dan Delaney, and Tadhg Cuddy in midfield, too. At times, lads were inclined to take too much out of the ball, but hopefully they'll build confidence in this tier, and drive on from there.

Job done? Confidence boosting for players and management. Seems a decent spine.

Quite a good bit of talent. Captain Tadhg Cuddy and wing-forward Dan Delaney caught the eye. Corner-back Ian Shanahan played well too. Laois got good start but let Westmeath back into the game. Westmeath only scored twice in the second half and only scored two points from play in total. Their keeper puck-outs got them scores. The Laois lads got a talking to at half time and scored 1-11 without reply. 1-5 to 0-5 at the break. Should win Tier 2!

Decent win. The talent is there. Westmeath were poor but Laois did the job well. Kildare had a big win over Antrim.

Of course any win in a good win but I wouldn't be getting too excited. There is a huge gulf in class between Westmeath and the likes of the teams we were playing last year. If this team played a Kilkenny or a Dublin and were beaten by 8 or 10 points, we'd be saying there isn't much talent.

The conditions (wind) made it difficult but I think that we still need to do a lot of work on the basic skills. On the other hand, the workrate is there, as it was last year, which is great to see.

There is no doubt that we have some good players (as we did last year). For me the standouts from this game were the corner (Shanahan I think No. 4) especially in the second half, Tadhg Cuddy (9), Dooley (11), and Adam Kirwan. Honourable mentions to Delaney (12) and Duggan (10).

It's great for lads to get a few good wins but they need to keep working hard at it.
