Longford Slashers played the most games of any Longford club in Leinster from 1970 to 2022 (14 in total), with Killoe Young Emmets playing 12 games and Clonguish 11 games. The stand-out moments down the years include… (1) the dramatic second half comeback by Fr. Manning Gaels and controversy around the heartbreaking 1-point defeat to Éire Óg (Carlow) in the 1998 semi final where an Éire Óg point was allowed which appeared to be wide and a Fr. Manning Gaels point was disallowed which appeared to be over the bar, (2) the infamous brawl between Dromard and Moorfield (Kildare) during their third Quarter Final clash in 2007 which resulted in players sent off, sanctions and Moorfield forced to play their remaining games away from home, (3) the emphatic defeat of Navan O’Mahonys (Meath) by Killoe Young Emmets in Pearse Park in 2012, and (4) the historic success of Mullinalaghta in reaching the Leinster Final and winning the Leinster title in 2018, to universal acclaim.

Longford’s champions played the Westmeath champions 14 times, the Offaly champions 11 times and the Laois champions 10 times between 1970 and 2022. The most frequently played opposition in that period was Éire Óg from Carlow (7 times), with Garrycastle, Rhode and Portlaoise all playing Longford opposition 5 times from 1970 to 2022. There were only two occasions from 1970 to 2021 where the Longford champions did not represent the county in the Leinster Club SFC… (1) In 1985 when the county final between Ardagh and Mostrim went to a second replay, resulting in the nomination of the 1984 champions Cashel instead, and (2) in 2020 when the Leinster Club Championship was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
