The U-14 competition began in 1965 following a successful motion at Convention, proposed by the Granard club.

U14 Championship was split into Urban and Rural competitions from 1976 to 1988.
Those titles are identified as (r) or (u) in the table of titles.

Dromard won the U-14 Championship for the first time in 1969, and decided to rectify the lack of any silverware for the winner by presenting the County Board with the Dromard Cup. The cup was used for U-14 Championship for a few years and when the competition was split into Urban and Rural from 1976 to 1988, the Dromard Cup was used for the Rural winner while the Longford Slashers Cup was presented to the Urban winner. Other cups such as the Fr. MacAulay Cup and P.M. Farrell Cup were also used for U-14 Championship over the years. Today the Paddy Doris Cup is presented to the winner.

A second U-14 Championship competition known as the ‘County Championship’ was played in addition to the regular U-14 Championship in 2016 & 2017. Longford Slashers won this competition in 2016 and Shamrock Gaels (an Independent Team comprising Ballymahon Forgney Gaels and Southern Gaels) won this competition in 2017. It was not continued thereafter.

Grade changed from U-14 to U-13 grade in 2021 & 2022 and back to U-14 from 2023.
