Watch: Niall McNamee Lights Up Offaly Championship With Scoring Masterclass

I don't think we could have put it better than Offaly GAA's very own Twitter account.

For some top players, form is temporary, but class is permanent. For Niall McNamee, form is permanent, and class is permanent.

McNamee proved exactly that on Sunday as Rhode got the better of Ferbane in the Offaly Senior Football Championship.

At 35-years-of-age, Niall is showing no signs of slowing down having put up a personal tally of 3-8 in the match, with just two of those points from frees.

Take a look at some highlights of his goals below:

McNamee first lined out for his county in 2003. He was part of the Leinster Final losing side to Dublin in 2006, having won a club championship medal with UCD in the same year.

Earlier in the year, he marked his 100th league appearance for Offaly in a National Football League game against Tipperary. Some achievement.

At club level in Offaly, Rhode have been the team to beat. Having won six senior football titles in the last decade, they did suffer a surprise defeat to Durrow earlier in the championship.

Nonetheless, a 4-12 to 3-13 victory will see them in good stead going forward. A shoutout to Ferbane's Joe Maher who was also accurate off the boot with 1-10.
