History of Club Hurling in Longford

Club Hurling Revivals

🗓️ In The Beginning:

The first hurling club in County Longford was formed in Longford town in October 1902 and called Leo Caseys. The Longford Leo Caseys hurling club was associated with the town’s branch of the Gaelic League and in these early years of the 20th century Hurling had a far greater impact in Longford town than Gaelic Football. A number of friendly club matches and tournaments took place across Longford in the early years of the new century, as well as games against clubs from Roscommon, Westmeath, Leitrim and Cavan. A hurling friendly played on 7th December 1902 between Longford Leo Caseys and Roscommon Gaels appears to be the first inter-county hurling game played by a Longford team. Roscommon Gaels won by 2-6 to 1-4. The return tie took place in Roscommon in mid February 1903 with Roscommon Gaels winning 2-5 to 0-1. This was one of a number of inter-county friendlies played in this period.

The Longford Senior Hurling Championship was organised for the first time in late 1904 with the final played in February 1905 and replayed in May 1905 with Longford Leo Caseys emerging as winners. Club activity was mainly confined to the later part of the year to avoid clash the farming activity during the good months of the year. Alas, SHC activity was short-lived with only one further SHC competition completed in this era, which was won by Killoe Young Emmets in 1907. We find no organised club hurling in Longford from 1908 to 1931. At county level, the Longford hurlers played from 1905 to 1911 at Junior grade in Leinster Junior Championship and after 1911 we find no inter-county hurling until 1929. There is some mention of hurling clubs forming or reviving in the 1910’s and 1920’s however with a couple of exceptions, no games were played and there was no hurling competition in Longford in the 1910’s and 1920’s.

Reference can be found to Killoe Hurling Club in November 1919 when a meeting was proposed to make arrangements for coming match, but no record of any games played. Longford Hurling Club is noted in August 1920 and again in May 1922 with practice ongoing in Longford Park. A friendly match is noted on 15th August 1924 between Longford and Lismacaffrey as part of the Street Annual Sports event. The Athlone District Notes in the Westmeath Examiner in June 1925 mention Hurling and Football Championship matches between the Army’s Eastern and Western Commands to be held on Monday 29th June 1925 in Longford in connection with the Chaplains’ and Medical Services Cup competition. On 27th August 1925 a hurling friendly was played in Longford Park between a Longford selection and the Army’s 6th Western Battalion, with Longford winning by 0-17 to 0-15. Another game took place in October 1925 between Longford hurling club and the Army’s 10th Battalion, with the Military running out 6-4 to 2-3 winners on that occasion. Another friendly is recorded between Longford hurling club and Lismacaffrey in November 1925, with Longford winning by 6-5 to 6-4. A friendly is played between Longford and Elphin Hurling Clubs in May 1926 and it is noted in June 1926 that the Longford hurling club is not affiliated with the County Board. In 1926 there is a brief reference to Lanesboro Hurling Club in context of organising a dance ‘under the auspices of’ the club, but no record of any games played by the club. In May 1928 a hurling challenge match between Westmeath and Tipperary drew big crowds to Longford Park. In June 1928 Longford Hurling Club applied to the Urban Council for permission to practice on the Fair Green in the town. The application was granted with the sum fixed at 2/6 a week and hours from 8pm to 10pm. The application also noted that until recently Longford was the only county in the country without a hurling club. Various challenge games are noted in 1928 including one on 11th November 1928 in Granard between a Longford Selection and Westmeath (Castlepollard). It is noted that Garda Molloy in Granard (former Galway football captain) is instrumental in getting members of the local Gardaí involved in hurling in the area.


🗓️ 1929-1934 Revival:

Longford returned to inter-county hurling competition in 1929 for the first time since 1911, and competed intermittently in the Leinster Junior Hurling Championship from 1929 to 1936, before all hurling in the county stopped. Club hurling was revived in Longford in 1932, with Granard Hurling Club winning three-in-a-row of SHC titles in 1932, 1933 and 1934 before club hurling competition came to an end. The SHC competitions of 1932 and 1933 were played on a league basis, with Granard topping the league at the end of the season, thus winning the title. The clubs involved in 1932 were Granard HC, Longford HC and Edgeworthstown HC while the hurling clubs involved in 1933 competition were Granard HC, Longford HC and Lisryan HC. For 1934, three hurling clubs competed in the Championship. Granard beat Lisryan (4-1 to 4-0), and Longford beat Lisryan. In the County Final Granard made it three in a row titles with victory over Longford by 3-2 to 1-3 on 22nd April 1934.

The first game of the 1932 Longford Senior Hurling Championship between Granard HC and Longford HC in April 1932 ended in tragedy, when the Granard captain, Justin Manning, a native of Woodford in Co. Galway, collapsed and died while being removed to hospital. The game had been only twelve minutes in progress and the deceased had played a prominent part until the tragic event abruptly terminated the game. The Coroner in reviewing the evidence at the inquest said it was evident that influenza was indirectly the cause of death. The death was not caused by anything which happened in the game. Justin Manning had been working as a shop assistant in Mr. L. D. Kiernan’s of Granard for some time.

Hurling went into rapid decline after 1934. Rathcline Hurling Club (sometimes cited as Lanesboro Hurling Club) was formed in July 1936 at a time when there was only one active hurling club in the county in Longford town. In the absence of any competitive games, Rathcline hosted Longford in a challenge game in late July 1936 (as part of Lanesboro Sports Day), with the Longford side winning 6-1 to 3-3. The return leg was in August 1936, with Rathcline winning by 5-2 to 2-2. There was no club hurling activity recorded after 1936.

During the years and decades thereafter, and with no hurling activity in the county, Granard Hurling Club entered and won the Cavan Senior Hurling Championship in 1950, beating Ballyhaise by 5-3 to 1-1 in the county final.


🗓️ 1958-1959 Revival:

Inter-county hurling was briefly revived in Longford in 1958, helped in no small part by the work of Rathcline’s Jimmie O’Brien who put up a great fight to obtain consent for the county’s entry into the Leinster Junior Hurling Championship that year, for the first time since 1936. Ahead of competition, he organised a trail game between Rathcline (drawn mostly from Bord na Mona) and Rest of County on 23rd February 1958 in Pearse Park, which Rathcline won by either 5-2 to 4-3 or 3-3 to 2-3 depending on which report you read. Longford played Offaly in the first round of the Leinster JHC on 30th March 1958 and lost by 10-4 to 0-1. The team that day was: F McGirr, M Quinlan, C Delaney, A Murray, J Rafter, D Dunne, R Groves, M Davis, F Clarke, J Kelly, B Donnelly. Sub: F Cronin for Grooves. That game was to mark the end of Longford’s involvement in adult inter-county hurling until Longford joined the National Hurling League in the 1981-82 season, and was Longford’s last competitive inter-county championship game at adult grade until 2005 when Longford competed in the inaugural Nicky Rackard Cup.

Club hurling in Longford began for the first time in 1959 with a Schoolboys hurling league organised with four teams involved. Games began on 15th June 1959, with Shannon Gaels (Rathcline) defeating Leo Caseys (Ballymahon) by 4-2 to 2-1 and St. Michaels defeating Killoe by 7-3 to 0-0. St. Michaels won the league title beating Shannon Gaels in the final by 7-0 to 3-0. A local hurling league was also organised in 1959 for school-going boys in Longford town, with games played in the Fair Green. In June 1959 Longford played Westmeath in the first round of the Leinster Juvenile Hurling Championship, with the panel including M Breheny, Mel Duncan, B Flynn (Leo Caseys), TJ Eivers, N O’Dowd, J Feeney (Shannon Gaels), M Fox (Killoe), D Gray, T O’Brien, J White, J Savage, M Comer, M Shiels, A Dineen, S McMonagle, B McCormack, L Egan, M Wall (St. Michaels). The local hurling league competition for Longford town lads was also organised in 1960 with games played in the Longford Sportsfield on Park Road, but no reports of Schoolboys Hurling League for 1960 or the years thereafter. It appears that underage hurling lapsed from 1960 until 1966.

A notice was carried in the Longford Leader on 26th December 1959 announcing that a Hurling Club had been formed for the Mostrim-Lisryan area, bearing the name St. Marys. A list of officials elected at the inauguration meeting was also listed. Captain was named as J Carey and Vice-Captain as Pat McQuade. No evidence of this St. Marys team ever playing any games and there was no adult competition in Longford for them to compete in either. Interestingly when a newly hurling club was formed in 1982 in Edgeworthstown, it was initially called St. Mary’s (Mostrim) and then changed to Wolfe Tones (Mostrim).


🗓️ 1965-1971 Revival:

At the 1960 Longford GAA Convention, Mostrim moved a motion to establish hurling in the county. By the Convention of December 1962, it was noted that no headway had been made on hurling. In April 1965, bulletin on hurling revival is issued as part of the Hurling Revival Scheme underway from Pairc an Chrocaigh as part of their Five-Year Hurling Plan. It reports that Longford held a prelim meeting in mid-February 1965 at which the hurling scheme was discussed. Commandant D O’Callaghan (Westmeath) attended as a member of the Hurling Commission. Three regional meetings were held in Granard, Ballymahon and Longford on February 25th 1965 to which teachers in those areas were invited with a view to obtaining their assistance. An Coiste Iomana was to be selected the following week and an order of 300 juvenile hurleys was placed. The success of Longford footballers meant that no progress was made throughout 1965 on hurling revival.

In January 1966 a new Coiste Iomana was formed and in June 1966 the Schoolboys Hurling League (U-14) was revived after a gap of a number of years. Te competition included teams from Stonepark, Newtownforbes, Teffia, Ballinamuck & Lanesboro. An U-16 Hurling League was also instituted with teams from Stonepark, Newtownforbes, Teffia, Ballinamuck & Lanesboro. Longford and Cavan met in an U-14 Hurling challenge in October 1966 with Cavan winning by 5-2 to 3-2. The GAA Central Council provided all 32 counties with a Cup for Juvenile competition as part of a hurling revival effort.

In July 1967 Longford took part in an U-16 inter-county hurling competition involving 16 counties comprising Louth, Leitrim, Wicklow, Kildare, Roscommon, Sligo, Mayo, Down, Fermanagh, Monaghan, Cavan and Longford. The Longford U-16 hurling panel was made up of players from Stonepark, Bunlahy, Teffia, Ballinamuck and Newtownforbes teams. The panel was: Longford panel was: J Twaddle, T Dowd (Stonepark), P Cahill, B Kiernan, T Kilbride, C Treacy (Bunlahy), W Keogh, G Wall, B Fanning (Teffia), M Whelan, P Whelan, Quinn (Ballinamuck), J O’Neill, D Connaughton, J Harte, C Keaveney, G Kiernan, G Lennane, K O’Connor, N Ward, D O’Brien, G McGrath, P O’Brien (Newtownforbes).

At club level, U-14 and U-16 Hurling competition continued in 1967 with Bunlahy making their debut in both competitions. We see U-14 and U-16 Hurling Championship competition taking place alongside existing League competition in 1967. Lanesboro beat Bunlahy in the U-16 Hurling League final by 4-3 to 4-1. In 1968 Longford (Slashers) hurlers and Wolfe Tones (Mostrim) hurlers joined the underage hurling family. In October 1968 the Minor Board organised a 9-a-side Schoolboys Hurling League involving 15 different teams from across the county. Competition started on weekend of November 23/24th 1968 with matches at 20 minutes each half and pitches 80 yards long by 60 yards wide, with parallelogram not in operation. The Minor Board noted with regret that only a few football clubs were backing the teams who have entered. The 1968 9-a-side Hurling League began in November 1968 with final played on 30th March 1969 in Pearse Park, with Bunlahy N.S. beating Stonepark N.S. by 2-0 to 1-1 to lift the new Corn Scóil. This competition included school teams from Fermoyle, Stonepark, Cloontagh, Newtownforbes, Bunlahy, Longford Slashers, Teffia, Wolfe Tones (Mostrim), Colehill and Lenamore.

In April 1969, the Minor Board meeting decided that Schoolboys, U-14 and U-16 Hurling Championship competition would be held, would be 13-a-side and would be 30 minutes each half. The 1969 Schoolboys Championship included Wolfe Tones, Fermoyle, Legan, St. Annes (Stonepark), Bunlahy, Cloontagh, with the title won by Stonepark St. Annes who beat Bunlahy in the final. The 1969 U-14 Championship included Lough Forbes Gaels, St. Annes (Stonepark), Lanesboro, Cuchulainns, Bunlahy & Longford Slashers, with the title won by Bunlahy who beat Lough Forbes Gaels in the final in December 1969 by 4-0 to 1-1. The U-16 Championship included Longford Slashers, Ballinamuck (in fixtures, but didn’t compete), Lanesboro, Bunlahy, St. Annes (Stonepark) & Lough Forbes Gaels and the title was won by Lough Forbes Gaels who beat Bunlahy by 7-3 to 0-1 in the decider. Pat Hunt and Pat Kenny became the first Longford players to win both Club Hurling and Club Football Juvenile Championship titles in Longford. Lough Forbes Gaels team was: J Blessing, D Barden, J Toher, M Kenny, P O’Brien, J Murray, T Barden, F Beirne, P Hunt, T McCormack, P Kenny, PJ Toher, S Nolan. Subs: G McGrath, T Casey, T Mahon.

Longford’s U-16 Hurling team trials arranged in April and May 1969 with game vs Roscommon in First round of Corn Ui Caoimh competition fixed for 23rd June 1969. Longford were beaten 8-8 to 2-0. Longford team: F. Glancy (Stonepark), T Barden (Clonguish), B Smith (Cashel), C Cashell (Ballymahon), C Twaddle (Stonepark, 1-0), G. McGrath (Lanesboro), B Fannin (Slashers), P Cahill (Bunlahy), M. Kelly (Forgney), T McCormack (Clonguish), F Kilbride (Bunlahy), PJ Oates (Stonepark, 1-0), M Esler (Carrickedmond), G Wall (Slashers), P Masterson (Lanesboro). Subs: J Mulhern and M Maguire (Stonepark), F Belton and J Farrell (Slashers).

1970 Schoolboys Hurling Championship included Legan Casements, Bunlahy, Cloontagh, Longford Slashers & Fermoyle. Title won by Legan Casements, who beat Fermoyle by 3-2 to 2-2 in August 1970. The 1970 U-14 Hurling Championship included St. Martins, Longford Slashers, Lough Forbes Gaels, Legan & Bunlahy. Final was between Bunlahy and Lough Forbes Gaels and was won by Lough Forbes Gaels by 3-0 to 1-0 in December 1970.

In 1971 Fermoyle beat St. Anne’s (Stonepark) by 10-1 to 1-1 in July 1971 to win the Schoolboys Hurling Championship title of 1971. This was their first hurling title. The Schoolboys League 9-a-side final was between Legan (holders) and St. Annes (Stonepark), with St. Annes winning by 6-1 to 3-0. The 1971 U-14 Championship included Longford Slashers, Lough Forbes Gaels, Dromard, Fermoyle, Legan and Bunlahy. The Final was between Legan v Bunlahy but was stopped after a player had to go to hospital at half-time due to a suspected broken arm. The 1971 U-16 Championship included Longford Slashers, Fermoyle/Lanesboro, Legan, Lough Forbes Gaels, Dromard and Bunlahy but no record of any games played. An U-17 Championship was played in 1971 included Longford Slashers, Legan, Lough Forbes Gaels and Lanesboro/Fermoyle. The Final was between Lough Forbes Gaels vs Slashers but there is no record of any winner. Thereafter there is no underage hurling activity for many years in the 1970’s except for Féile na nGael which saw teams nominated in specific years to represent Longford at National Féile before a County Féile finally began in 1977.


🗓️ 1977 Revival:

The next hurling revival occurs in 1977, initially in underage and eventually at senior grade leading to Longford entering the National Hurling League for the first time in October 1981. In 1977 we find Slashers Gaels, Wolfe Tones and Cashel in U-14 Hurling Championship competition which had revived for the first time since 1971. Rathcline Gaels are also involved in underage competition by 1978, while 1979 saw Killoe make a brief appearance in U-14 Hurling Championship. Juvenile Hurling Championship was revived in 1979, while U-12 and Minor Hurling Championships were introduced anew in 1980.

By 1980 seven hurling clubs were affiliated across various underage hurling grades:

  • Slashers Gaels (Longford Slashers)
  • Naomh Ciarans (Rathcline)
  • Wolfe Tones (Mostrim)
  • Cashel
  • Lough Forbes Gaels (Clonguish)
  • St. Brendans (Stonepark)
  • St. Mels (Shroid Slashers)

At adult grade, a new Junior Hurling Championship was organised in Longford in 1981, the first adult hurling competition in the county since the 1934 Senior Hurling Championship. The final saw Rathcline Gaels defeat Slashers Gaels by 6-10 to 1-2 on 4th October 1981. This Junior competition was only played once and was discontinued when Senior Hurling Championship was revived in 1982. The Longford Senior Hurling Championship made a comeback in 1982 for the first time since 1934. Slashers Gaels (Longford Slashers) beat Naomh Ciaráns (Rathcline) by 2-10 to 1-6 in the 1982 decider to lift the new J.J. Duignan Cup as Longford champions. Teams from Slashers Gaels, Wolfe Tones (Mostrim), Naomh Ciaráns (Rathcline), Ballymahon and Bunlahy competed in Senior hurling in the 1980’s with Wolfe Tones and Ballymahon amalgamating to compete in 1983, 1984 & 1985 SHC competition. A new Senior Hurling League began in March 1986, with Slashers Gaels, Naomh Ciaráns (Rathcline), Bunlahy and Wolfe Tones (Mostrim) taking part. The inaugural SHL title was won by Slashers Gaels who beat Naomh Ciaráns (Rathcline) by 3-9 to 3-8 in the final. Slashers Gaels would go on to win 5-in-a-row of Senior Hurling League titles from 1986-1990. The Senior Hurling League competition faded out in the early 1990’s and despite a brief revival at the start of the 2000’s, it has not been played since.

In 1985 St. Faithleachs (Ballyleague) joined the Féile na nGael competition in Longford. A new U-21 Hurling Championship was introduced in 1986. By 1987 there were nine hurling clubs in action across adult and youth grades in Longford including U-11, U-12, U-14, U-16, U-18, U-21 and Senior competition. Four of these clubs (Slashers Gaels, Wolfe Tones, Naomh Ciaráns and Bunlahy) competed in adult hurling competition by that point. The hurling clubs in 1987 were as follows:

  • Slashers Gaels (Longford Slashers)
  • Naomh Ciaráns (Rathcline)
  • Wolfe Tones (Mostrim)
  • Bunlahy
  • Abbeylara
  • Ballymahon
  • Cashel
  • Kenagh
  • Lough Forbes Gaels (Clonguish)

By the late 1980’s Longford hurlers were competing at inter-county level at Senior, U-21, Minor and U-16 grades and had enjoyed victories in NHL Division 4 (1983/84 and 1987/88), All-Ireland Special Minor Championship (1987), Leinster Special Minor League (1982, 1983 & 1984) and All-Ireland Special U-16 (Willword Tailteann Cup – 1982, 1984, 1985 & 1986). This would prove to be a high point in terms of hurling activity in Longford.


🗓️ 1990’s Revival:

The Senior Hurling League which began in March 1986 was re-branded and re-launched in May 1990 as the Tangled Web League and involving six teams, namely Lough Forbes Gaels (Clonguish), Ballymahon/Cashel, Wolfe Tones (Mostrim), Naomh Ciaráns (Rathcline) and both Slashers Gaels & Longford Slashers (Slashers had 2 teams). The Tangled Web League was played in 1990, 1991 and 1992 and was then discontinued. From 1992 hurling began to go into rapid decline in Longford. Naomh Ciaráns (Rathcline) bowed out of senior activity after 1992, with Ballymahon emerging on their own from 1993 to play alongside Slashers Gaels and Wolfe Tones (Mostrim) in a three-team SHC competition in 1993. By 1994 there were just two adult hurling clubs in Longford – Slashers Gaels and Wolfe Tones.

The late 1990’s saw a revival of hurling in Schools with U-11/U-12 hurling competition and Mini Hurling Sevens competition involving 32 schools across the county. However this revival did not sustain and the number of hurling clubs in the county continued to decline. 1999 represented something of a low point in Longford Hurling with the county team unable to field against Donegal in NHL. Slashers Gaels were unable to field in the 1999 Leinster Club Championship against Kilmessan (Meath) when Wolfe Tones (that years County Champions) were unable to fulfill the tie due to a spate of injuries, and Slashers were asked to travel to Trim for the match instead but only 13 players showed up and Kilmessan received a walkover.

By 1999 there were four adult hurling clubs in Longford:

  • Ballymahon Gaels
  • Clonguish Gaels
  • Slashers Gaels
  • Wolfe Tones (Mostrim)

Ballymahon Gaels were revived in 1999 having not played in adult competition since 1993 while a new hurling club had recently been formed in Clonguish (Clonguish Gaels) who then entered the SHC for the first time in 1999. These four clubs competed in adult hurling from 1999 to 2002, with Ballymahon Gaels disbanding after 2002. Since 2003 adult hurling has been played by just three clubs: Longford Slashers (Slashers Gaels renamed), Wolfe Tones and Clonguish Gaels. The number of clubs reducing briefly from three to two in 2012 and 2013 when Longford Slashers did not compete in those years.

It is worth noting that a Senior ‘B’ Hurling Championship was played briefly in the mid 2000’s, with Clonguish Gaels winning in 2005 and Wolfe Tones (Mostrim) winning in 2006. The cup is currently on display in Jack’s Corner House in Edgeworthstown.


🗓️ Today’s Status:

As of 2024 Longford has three adult hurling clubs: Longford Slashers, Clonguish Gaels & Wolfe Tones. That number has not increased since 2003. These three clubs compete in adult and underage competition (U13, U15, U17, U20 & SHC), and also take part in Táin Óg and CúChulainn hurling leagues. As of 2024 Longford now has six underage hurling teams: Longford Slashers, Clonguish Gaels, Wolfe Tones, St. Dominics (Kenagh), St. Francis (Dromard) & Shannon Gaels (Rathcline). It is worth noting that St. Dominics, St. Francis and Shannon Gaels compete at U-8 to U-12 grades only (Go Games), with the latter two having introduced or re-introduced hurling in 2024. It is also worth noting that Carrick Hurling club from Leitrim also take part in specific underage hurling competitions in Longford.

At National School level the 2024 indoor hurling competition involves 13 schools: Killoe NS (5 teams), Clondra NS (5 teams), Ballinalee NS (3 teams), Melview NS (3 teams), Newtownforbes NS (3 teams), Colmcille NS (3 teams), Edgeworthstown NS (2 teams), Lanesboro NS (2 teams), Mullinalaghta NS (2 teams), Killasonna NS (1 team), Tashinny NS (1 team), Stonepark NS (1 team) and Kenagh NS (1 team).
