Report

Rhode defeated Tullamore by 1-9 (12 Points) to 1-7 (10 Points) in the Offaly GAA Senior Football Championship in 2020. They had won their group comfortably and defeated Edenderry in the Semi-Finals. Tullamore, the runners-up in Rhode’s group, won against Ferbane on penalties after a draw in the other Semi-Final. Clara were relegated after losing to Bracknagh in the Relegaion Final. It was Rhode’s 30th Offaly Senior Football Championship and after being 0-5 to 0-3 down at the half, with the wind at their backs in the second half Niall McNamee hit top form in front of goal. It was not until the 55th minute that the Blues scored their first point of the second half, and almost stole victory with a late comeback in injury time, but the title was secure for Rhode.
