OFFALY AND DUBLIN will head into the Division 1 quarter-finals next weekend on the back of very different performances.

The Faithful will play Kilkenny with the venue to be decided by coin toss, while Dublin have home advantage against Tipperary.

Offaly fell to a 2-21 to 2-18 defeat to Antrim after Nigel Elliot scored a late goal for the Saffrons.

Daniel McCluskey’s first-half goal left Antrim 1-10 to 1-9 ahead at half-time, with Peter Geraghty hitting the Offaly goal.

A Shane Dooley goal brought Offaly level in the third quarter, before Elliot’s late intervention.

Dublin enjoyed an altogether more straightforward afternoon with Ryan O’Dwyer and Ronan Hayes (2) finding the net in their 3-23 to 0-17 win over Laois.
