Great win absolutely delighted for the players and manager. The confidence this will give this group will stand to them going foward. I took a draw in paddy powers myself , should have back the boys to win . Against Waterford the first 15 mins we were outstanding , it just goes to show on any given day we can mix it with the big boys , yes the heads drop in games and we can get over run , but winning games like tonight is what these boys play for , congrats lads and keep her lit for the journey up north !

Fantastic win for Offaly tonight. Well done to everyone involved. Could people please stop this rubbish that we don't have the hurlers in Offaly?

tox i think p camon started in midfield instead of s cleary and e nolan switched to wing forward .
i think we had a half forward line of e nolan j bergin and c kiely with s quirke d currams and s dooley inside during the second half .
listened to it on midland radio 3 and i think c kiely came on for s kinsella and d mooney came on for p camon but i could be totaly wrong .
This could be the win these lads have needed ,well done ye done yourselves proud .

Don't want to put a dampener on it but Limerick were down a man for 70 minutes. I know you have to beat what is put in front of you but a one man advantage is huge in any sport and without doubt Shane Dowling is worth maybe 4 or 5 points to the Limerick side.

I fir one have never doubted the ability of hurlers in Offaly....but I have doubted the ability of management to get the best out of them. ....but let's not let this victory hide the issues....well done to all involved last night, every team needs a bit of luck and we got it last night with the sending off of Dowling. ......now we need to push on from here and demonstrate that we do have the hurlers......on a consistent basis.

Hopefully a win against Antrim and a good happy camp for the next 2 months should see training going well before the championship, Limerick must be sick of playing us, 2 years now we have more or less stopped their promotion, can we play them every week.

Thanks to Midlands103Sport for the Online commentary - when you're out of the country it means a lot! It was great to click the Twitter link on the Phone and immediately get immersed in the action!

Passionate commentary - they sounded just as delighted as I was that Offaly were turning it around (was it Joe Troy and Brian Lowry? - anyway they were a tonic to listen to).

You are correct Phoenix with broth commentators. Great win for Offaly, no relegation, and a possible q/final spot up for grabs. Offaly footballers won today, 0-14 to 1-10, great weekend for the Faithful County.
