WATCH: Offaly players and management mic'd up for Tailetann Cup clash with New York

Offaly captain Johnny Moloney and vice-captain Ruairi McNamee, as well as manager John Maughan, were mic'd up for the second instalment of AIB's new Tailteann Cup: Mic’d Up series. Press play on the clip above to watch it.

It gives a behind-the-scenes glimpse into Offaly GAA as they went head-to-head with New York in the Tailteann Cup quarter-finals in Tullamore.

The new, first of its kind series, provides fans with unique access to life on the pitch for players and management, and was launched earlier this month as part of AIB’s sponsorship of the 2022 GAA All-Ireland Senior Football Championship. Bringing to the forefront AIB’s proud sponsorship of the championships, Tailteann Cup: Mic’d Up highlights #TheToughest players in Gaelic Games – from the dressing room to the field of play - and spotlights that winning or losing matters at every level and in every competition.

This week’s episode features Offaly manager, John Maughan, alongside team captain, Johnny Moloney and vice-captain, Ruairi McNamee as they bid to overcome New York GAA in the Tailteann Cup quarter-final.  With plenty of grit and determination on show from the Faithful County, the latest instalment gives fans a compelling insight into what it means when giving your all for your county.

The new series highlights that whether it’s the Tailteann Cup  or Sam Maguire at stake, there is no difference in the passion and drive that both the players and managers feel in the heart of the action.  Tailteann Cup: Mic’d Up emphasises the unique mind of our GAA county players - from their drive and perseverance to their dedication and sacrifice. For these teams, it’s about never giving up and never giving in, because Tough Can’t Quit.

Supporters of the GAA since 1991, AIB has seen what it takes to compete in #TheToughest games in Gaelic Games and recognises the unique ability of the GAA All-Ireland Senior Football Championship to spark this famous passion and remarkable resolve in teams and fans around the country.
