WATCH: Offaly sub thinks quickly to slow down late Sligo kick-out with game on the line

Shane Tierney's intervention allowed Offaly to get back in position and also prompted Sligo players to get involved with him. It's not something we'd recommend you do in a Junior B game on a wet night in Offaly but it allowed his team to get back to defend and see out the win.
