At shortly after 9am this morning, Derry GAA confirmed that the Allianz League game between Derry and Offaly would go ahead despite the overnight snow.

That was the cue for many Offaly fans to hit the road but when they reached Derry, or were very close to finishing their 250km journey, Derry GAA's Twitter account put out the following tweet.

As you might imagine, Offaly fans were less than impressed especially when you consider tweets like this from people in Derry over the course of the morning after the game was confirmed as going ahead.

Offaly fans who were on the road were quick to vent their frustration.
