OFFALY FOOTBALL MANAGER Tom Cribbin was willing to switch the date of his side’s encounter with Limerick, according to RTÉ Sport.

The current date which the matches take place on means that Limerick’s football and hurling teams will be playing on the same day in different venues.

Dual-players Stephen Lucey and Mark O’Riordan have been forced to choose which team to turn out for, with both choosing to play for the hurlers.

Cribbin expressed bemusement at the situation, saying: “I don’t know why it wasn’t changed but that’s not our concern.”

In relation to his own team, the manager expressed satisfaction with his side’s win over Monaghan, especially after the criticism they received following their loss to Wexford in the Leinster Football Championship, admitting: “We had something to prove to ourselves.”

Cribbin’s side will face Limerick this Saturday in the Gaelic Grounds.
