Unfortunately championship 2016 came to a sudden halt on Saturday evening last when we deservedly lost out to a fine St Columbas team at the semi final stage. While we had chances to win the game, Mullinalaghta were the better team on the evening and finally saw us off in the closing stages. We wish them all the best in the final and we hope their long wait for a Sean Connolly cup will come to an end this year.
Our intermediate B team are out in the championship semi final this coming Saturday against Abbeylara. The game is in Pearse Park on Saturday at 4pm Good luck to team and management.
Best wishes to the Longford ladies team and our own girls Ann Marie Bratten and Jacinta Brady in the All Ireland Final on Sunday next. Please god they can finish off their fine season with a win.
