The late Noel Guing

posted 29 Aug 2021, 02:41 by Edenderry GAA

Everyone at Edenderry GAA was saddened to hear of the sad passing of Noel Guing, an Edenderry GAA Hall of Fame inductee. Noel had a lifetime of involvement with the Gaelic Athletic Association and was a very proud ‘Red’

Noel his first football Co. Championship medal in 1949. He was on the school team that brought the Ennis Cup back to Edenderry Boy’s National School. A two-year period of ill health kept him away from football until the age of 18 when he came on the scene again in 1956. He won a senior Co. Championship medal at corner back with Edenderry in 1957 at the age of 20. His performances in that championship win earned him a call up to the Offaly senior panel where he made his league debut on October 20th, 1957, in a five-point victory over Laois before man marking legendary Dublin footballer Kevin Heffernan in his second game, holding him scoreless.

In the 1958 championship he played at corner back as Offaly defeated Laois and Kildare before falling to the reigning Leinster & All-Ireland champions Louth on the 29th of June on a score- line of 1-5 4-3. In February 1959 he immigrated to Luton, England and quickly got involved with St. Dympna’s GAA a new club that was formed in 1958. Over the next 14 years he was an active member of the committee, serving as treasurer while also a player. He also played for the county of Hertfordshire from 1961 to 1971. He won 5 senior leagues with Dympna’s in the 1960’s but the Hertfordshire Senior Football Championship always eluded them.

In 1971 he took on the role of player/manager and brought the senior championship to the club for the first time. He repeated the win again in 1972 and another huge highlight of his time in Hertfordshire was lining out against the ‘three in a row’ All-Ireland champions Galway in Wembley stadium in the mid 60’s. In 2018 at the club’s 60 year celebration he was honoured by St. Dympna’s for his role in winning their first Senior Championship.

He returned to live Edenderry in 1972 with his young family and served on the Edenderry committee and one year as senior manager in 1990. His family have also contributed greatly to the club with son Kevin winning 4 senior championships, his grandson Derek Kelly winning 2 and his granddaughter Gillian also winning two ladies’ senior championships. His daughter Lisa has also been a fantastic volunteer for the Club. In 2011 he won the club supporter of the year and he remained a staunch supporter of Gaelic games, attending Edenderry games at all age groups along with his wife Joan up to very recently.

Thinks looking up for Offaly

posted 4 Jun 2021, 05:05 by Edenderry GAA

John Maughan reckons they are “on to something” in Offaly.

Offaly’s senior footballers put themselves into a Division 3 semi-final last Saturday by downing Munster champions Tipperary with five points to spare.

It was a third win on the bounce for the Faithful men and next up for Maughan’s charges is a date with Fermanagh in Tullamore where second tier status will be up for grabs. 

Speaking to RTE Sport, Maughan says he’s excited about the direction Offaly are moving in as a county and is enjoying the project with the footballers immensely.

"Well, there were times against Tipp where I wasn’t so much," he joked. “But we’re on to something in the county.

“The Shane Lowry news the last few weeks, the hurlers, footballers, ladies’ footballers and camogie players - there is great positivity there. Two minor teams in Leinster finals. The spirit is good in the county."
