Shane Lowry has been sitting in O’Connor Park on too many occasions to mention over the past decade as Offaly hit various degrees of rock bottom in both codes, so it’s fitting that the 2019 Open champion will take his seat in Croke Park tomorrow.

Lowry may be a world-class golfer, but Offaly GAA courses through his veins and there was never any doubt that his original Sunday flight back to New York would be deferred 24 hours to watch the Faithful footballers contest the All-Ireland U-20 final.
