FOLLOWING the phenomenal success of the Live Coverage of the 2011 General Election, the Offaly Express has decided to trial Live Sports Coverage from Friday to Sunday each week.

The service will start this Friday afternoon and will run until Sunday evening.

It will provide live updates from games, team news where available, results and news from a range of sports across Offaly.

The main feature of the service will be its interactivity which will allow users to log on and add their own results as and when they have them.

It is also a forum where users can comment on the sporting action and it is hoped to publish a selection of commentes each week in the paper.

The service is free and initially no log on will be required to post to the blog.
