"Heart-Rending" Victory Puts Offaly In First Leinster Semi Since 2006

Martin Murphy talks to Midlands 103 about their rollercoaster journey to Croker.

Offaly are in to their first Leinster Final in 16 years after they surprised Colm O'Rourke's Meath in Tullamore yesterday.

Bigger than the shock of Offaly's win is the manner of it, Meath mustered only two points in the first period as Martin Murphy's men left the field 9 points clear.

The visiting division two side rallied in the second half but never got within four points of an Offaly team who were typically quicker and more resolved.

Murphy caught up with Midlands 103 after the game and tells Brian Gavin the result is a product of the players' efforts:

It's Offaly v Louth in Croke Park for the Leinster Senior Football Championship Semi-Final, and throw in is set for 1.45pm.
