It took a late burst from the lillywhites to see off their neighbours.
Despite a strong showing, Offaly exited this years Leinster championship at the quarter-final stage at the hands of neighbours Kildare.
0-20 to 0-16 the final score in Portlaoise.
Cian Farrell kicked seven points including two frees and two 45's but John Maughan's charges ultimately came up short.
Seven different players troubled the scoreboard for the Faithful county, something they'd been working on extensively in training.
Cian Farrell, Niall McNamee, Ruari McNamee, Paddy Dunican, Bernard Allen, Joey O'Connor and Anton Sullivan.
A flurry of points midway through the second half left Offaly just a point down heading into the final few minutes but Kildare managed to kick on, scoring four of the last five to book a place against Meath in next weekend's semi-final double header.
