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."

Inter county GAA set to return

posted 1 Apr 2021, 00:33 by Edenderry GAA




GAA inter-county senior teams are to resume collective training from April 19, with a return to competitive action just around the corner.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin this evening addressed the nation on the new Covid-19 restrictions which are to come into place over next month, confirming the Allianz Leagues will start some time in May.

In further good news for the GAA, the government will permit underage non-contact training in pods of up to 15 on April 26.

However, there has been no update on when inter-county U20 and minor sides can return to play.

"From 19th April, some additional high performance training will be permitted, including senior inter-county GAA training to facilitate national league competitions, starting in May; as well as training for certain high performing athletes approved by Sport Ireland in a range of other sports," Martin said in a live address at government buildings.

"From April 26th, outdoor sports training for under 18s can begin again, golf and outdoor tennis can be played."

1 year since GAA first suspended activity due to COVID-19

posted 16 Mar 2021, 02:03 by Edenderry GAA


March 12 2020 was the day that the GAA, the LGFA and the Camogie Association announced that they were calling a halt to all games and training because of the worsening Covid-19 situation.

Earlier the same day the then Taoiseach Leo Varadkar had informed the nation that schools would shut that evening.

At the time the GAA said activities would be suspended until March 29 but it was actually over three months later, at the end of June, when on pitch training resumed.

Just 14 weeks later all club games were cancelled on October 5 after a number of county finals saw behaviour which broke Covid-19 health guidelines.

As we reach the one year anniversary, club players have had just over three months of competitive action allowed in the last 12-months.

Happy 30th birthday Mark Young

posted 4 Feb 2021, 04:00 by Edenderry GAA


Birthday wishes are sent to former Edenderry senior footballer and underage child prodigy Mark Young.

Mark enjoyed unprecedented underage success with the club and St Mary's Secondary school before going on to collect two Dowling Cups in 2011 & 2015.

Despite missing a crucial penalty in the closing stages of the 2011 final vs Clara, a then 20 year old Young celebrated the win in style for the following four years and received many a free pint of stout from local publicans once he explained to them "do you know who I am"?

Regarded by many as the second best player of his generation after Daniel 'Red' Ryan and widely known as "The Face of Copper Face Jacks", Mark is a highly decorated and dedicated member of the Irish Defence Forces.

Unfortunately, Mark has hung up his playing boots in order to concentrate on his first love, his job.
