DUBLIN survived a late Offaly onslaught to kickstart their national league Division 1B campaign with a one point win at Parnell Park.

Shane Dooley second half brace of goals nearly saw the Faithful county taking a result from the capital but they just missed out on a scoreline of 1-20 to 2-16.

Paul Ryan and Shane Dooley traded early frees before Conal Keaney illustrated his class with a point to go 0-4 to 0-3 in front.

James Mulrooney grabbed a great score for Offaly in the latter stages of the first half to keep tabs on Anthony Daly's men but trailed by 0-11 to 0-6 at the change of ends.

Dublin maintained their five-point advantage until Shane Dooley's goal reduced the arrears to two.

Dublin responded well with Danny Suttcliffe cancelling out Dooley's effort almost immediately.

Offaly bounced back and another Dooley goal that took his personal tally to 2-9 and a Parlon free put just two between the sides at 1-18 to 2-13 with seven minutes remaining.

Offaly pushed hard late on but Daly's men dug in and eeked out a one point win.
