Offaly"s two midfielders, Ciaran McManus and Niall Smith, will do battle at midfield and both players are likely to play a big role, but Gracefield"s half-back and half-forward lines should win the battle for breaking ball and their greater scoring ability should be too much for Tubber to handle, as a club who find scoring more than twelve times extremely difficult. Gracefield should welcome back the two Fitzpatricks and that added firepower could give them the edge in what could be a very hard fought and entertaining game.

Rynagh"s could surprise a lot of people in this game, though Rovers" fighting spirit may see them sneak the draw that they need to stay in the senior ranks. Erin Rovers are competitive and committed team, but they don"t score freely, and if they can"t shake Rynagh"s loose early on, the men in hoops will grow in confidence. Players like Gary Mahon, Gary O"Connor and Stephen Wynne are well able to take a score, while if either of the Rafferty brothers can put the shackles on Alan Lynam, Rovers will find scores very hard to come by.

Fast forward on to today and while nobody would try to argue that the two teams are equal on paper, Rhode appeared hesitant and uncertain against Shannonbridge, while Ferbane found their championship rhythm in a real ding dong battle against Tullamore. Two weeks ago this fixture would have been the easiest prediction since Scotland played Estonia in Tailinn without the Estonians on the field. Rhode had beaten Tullamore in the first round while Ferbane had folded meekly to Shannonbridge in the first round and the two clubs looked a world apart.

We guess twelve. Clara had a good win over Raheen in the previous round and veterans like Kieran O"Meara and Willie Reynolds are very solid players at this level, but Brigid"s were very unlucky to be relegated last year and they appear to have upped their standard again in an attempt to return to senior at the first attempt. Of the twelve games previewed in this paper, the only way there could be any surprise in this game would be if it turned out not to have the biggest winning margin of the whole weekend - that would be shock enough. As for the margin? They may or may not manage that much, but they will beat Clara this Sunday.

Anton Sullivan scored the only goal in the 37th minute as 'The Village' claimed their 29th title to extendtheir lead at the top of the Offaly SFC roll of honour.

If ten people were asked to rank the clubs in the IFC, at least seven out of ten would put Doon third while a similar proportion would probably put Birr fourth, based on results in 2008. The problem for Birr is that the gap between third and fourth is similar to the gap between Kilkenny and the second best team in hurling - it might be only one ranking place, but it"s a lot more than that in reality.

Every Offaly success has brought a generous contribution from Rhode and the representation of five of the victorious panel of 1971 and 1972 this was the highest of any club. There were great battles with Rhode and Tullamore in the 1920s and early 1930s, the razor sharp rivalry with near neighbours Edenderry through the years to the most recent dominance of Offaly football 1998 to 2018. Rhode GAA Club was formed in 1888 and Rhode GAA is legendaryas once written by Offaly GAA historian John Clarke in an article entitled Rhode The Triumphant Erigena sums up what is the essence of Rhode GAA Club. Rhodes impact on Gaelic football has not confined to the domestic scene. The first in 1900 and the most recent in 2018 sees Rhode dominance continue so much so that we are now only one title behind county leaders Tullamore. More success followed through the early 1980s with another four representing the club in 1982 and returned again in 1997 and 1998 with Leinster and National Football League wins. The history of Offaly football is lavishly adorned with the contributions from Rhode. Rhode GAA have won 29 senior football championships which is a record that no other small village in the county could boast.
