Wexford are through to the quarter-finals of the Tailteann Cup after scoring a 1-22 to 2-14 against Offaly in Tullamore.

The visitors struck their 1-22 total from open play as they entered the last eight draw alongside Cavan, Meath, Antrim and Limerick and ended the Faithful men’s season in the process.

Padraic Hughes’ goal late in the first-half was what saw the Slaneysiders lead by 1-10 to 1-7 at the halfway stage and the points of Mark Rossiter, Eoghan Nolan and Kevin O’Grady helped stretch their lead early in the second-half.

Offaly were reduced to 14 men six minutes into the resumption after Joe Maher was booked for a second time and they’d left chasing the game, going on to trail by eight before being reduced to 13 men and striking a late consolation goal via Aaron Leavy.
