Offaly Manager Voices Concern Over Performance Level After Relegation Escape

Offaly return to action in the Leinster Championship against Laois next month.

Declan Kelly isn't holding back in his criticism of the Offaly footballers after the Faithful County emerged from their tussle with Limerick with their Division Three status intact.
