It would allow a full preparation for the footballers assault on the Leinster club championship.
The old issue of the pitfalls of success within a dual club are to the forefront of Offaly GAA once again.
Tullamore are seeking a rescheduling of the Senior 'B' hurling decider between themselves and Clodiagh Gaels next weekend to facilitate preparations for the Leinster club football championship battle with Naas.
The contest with the Kildare champions is penciled in for a 1pm start in Newbridge on November 21st, less than 24 hours after Tullamore's dual players have taken the field against Clodiagh Gaels in Birr.
Offaly County Board don't have much time to act but it appears as if there is some wiggle room for the hurling final with the winners of that not due out until the begging of next month.
Speaking after their win against Rhode, Tullamore boss Niall Stack was forthright in his opinion that a compromise be reached:
'If Offaly County Board and the people of Offaly want us to represent the county to the best of our abilities at the next level, which we want to, I think they'll have to really look at that fixture and see what they can do for us.'
