"We Fet Like We Were The Big Dogs For Once, It Was Unbelievable" - Brian Duignan

Offaly's senior hurlers look like they're finally winning hearts and minds at home after a long road.

"If we give them something now, they'll follow us next year."

Their last outing of the inter-county season came in a nine point defeat to Cork in O'Connor Park in the All Ireland preliminary quarter finals on Saturday.
