Offaly ended a 22 year wait to win the Leinster Minor Hurling title with a 0-21 to 0-13 win over Laois in O'Moore Park on Monday night.
As the celebrations of the Offaly players and the Offaly fans got into full swing in Portlaoise, Twitter reacted to the win... and captain Dan Ravenhill's brilliant speech!!!!
Unreal performance for @Offaly_GAA minor. Leinster champions ⚪️. The future of the senior team is bright. Great game of hurling. Great for the county. #UibhFhailiAbu #offalyvslaois #GAA #thefaithful #ilovemycounty https://t.co/VzDurIWpNl— Gerard O'Hanlon (@Gerard0Hanlon) May 16, 2022
Absolutely delighted for our @Offaly_GAA minor hurlers and everyone involved tonight... huge display from them, ran themselves into the ground all over the field, took some great scores, and some top class, cool, zero panic defending... Great team performance!— Shane Dooley (@shanedoole) May 16, 2022

Congrats to #Offaly on winning the Leinster Minor Hurling title for the first time in 22 years. Dan Ravenhill played superbly and I have already lined him up for an after-dinner speaking gig at our local convent pic.twitter.com/VMx6t5Dcx7— Des Cahill (@sportsdes) May 16, 2022

That speech from the @Offaly_GAA captain would remind you of Sean Og 05— Patrick O'Connor (@pocfeenagh) May 16, 2022

It seems the key to Offaly underage success is a good mullet.— Jonathan Higgins (@Jhiggins3) May 16, 2022
And the faithful are many. There was more at the game between #Offaly & Laois tonight than at the Cork v Waterford in the Munster Championship on Sunday. [Might need a beep machine for future acceptance speeches though f$£k ] pic.twitter.com/o2buzNCVlA— Kevin Doyle (@KevDoyle_Indo) May 16, 2022
Some crowd in portlaoise for the minor hurling final. Young offaly supporters on the side line buzzing, mad to get onto the field to see their hero's, who are only 17 years old themselves. Class.— Rory's Stories (@RorysStories) May 16, 2022
What was the last time Offaly hurling supporters were this happy? pic.twitter.com/nFS8HFQECm— Official Offaly GAA (@Offaly_GAA) May 16, 2022
