WATCH: Offaly's homecoming celebrations after 1985 All-Ireland victory

The RTE News Archives have thrown up a gem of a video from Offaly 1985 All-Ireland Hurling Final celebrations in Tullamore.

Click here to watch the video in all its glory and more from the RTE Archive, including Des Cahill chatting with a very confused American tourist who declared, "these people are crazy."

Offaly had beaten Galway in 1985 to secure their second ever All-Ireland title. 

The highlights of the video include no-nonsense centre-back Pat Delaney singing the Offaly Rover, and well, the whole of Tullamore singing it as well!
