Westmeath go unbeaten while Offaly sit joint bottom of the Division 3 League.

Declan Kelly is reflecting on a disastrous final 15 minutes that saw his Offaly footballers surrender a 9 point lead to lose their third straight game.

Clare emerged victorious after overturning the Faithful's commanding lead, and then surviving a Peter Cunningham penalty in the last kick of the game.

That result leaves Offaly pointless in Division Three of the National Football League after three rounds.

Kelly tells Brian Gavin it's one that his side should have seen out:

Final score in that game was 2-10 to 1-12.
