Longford LGFA Story (1980-2022)

Longford LGFA Story

Ladies Gaelic football in County Longford originates in 1980 while competition started at Senior grade from late 1980. In May 1980 a group of girls from the parish of Dromard suggested forming a Ladies Gaelic Football Club within the parish. A meeting was called in the Old Latin School in Moyne at the end of May, a committee was formed and the Dromard Ladies Club became the first Ladies Football Club in Longford. Shortly thereafter other clubs were formed in Abbeylara, Killoe, Legan and Colmcille, and in August 1980 the Longford County Board met for the first time. The first County Board executive was elected as follows…

  • Chairperson: Terry McCormack (Killoe)
  • Vice Chairperson: Seán McCabe (Dromard)
  • Secretary: Anne McGuire (Killoe)
  • Treasurer: Ann Brady (Colmcille)
  • PRO: Anne McGoldrick (Killoe)
  • Registrar: Mary Masterson (Legan)

A League competition began on Sunday 31st August 1980 involving five clubs which had formed in the preceding months… Abbeylara, Colmcille, Dromard, Killoe and Legan. Killoe went on to win the Senior league competition that year with victory over Legan in the final, on a scoreline of 1-3 to 0-2 and were the first to be awarded the Anthony Curren Cup which Anthony and Curran’s Garage Arva had sponsored, while The Breffini Arms (Eamon Gray) sponsored medals for the competitions. That league competition was initially played as 9-a-side but would soon become a 15-a-side league competition as more clubs formed in Longford.

The 5 Ladies Clubs in competition in 1980 were:

  • Abbeylara
  • Colmcille
  • Dromard
  • Killoe
  • Legan

By 1981, Ladies football was expanding rapidly. The clubs of Ardagh, Cashel, Éire Óg (Drumlish), Forgney, Kenagh, Longford Slashers, Mostrim, Moydow, Seán Connolls and Shroid were formed and competed alongside Abbeylara, Colmcille, Dromard, Killoe and Legan in 1981, to bring the club count to 15. The Senior (league) competition of 1981 was won by Ardagh who defeated Longford Slashers by 4-7 to 2-0 in the final to win the Anthony Curren Cup. Longford ladies reached the Leinster Senior Football final of 1981 but were defeated by Offaly in the decider.

The 15 Ladies Clubs in competition in 1981 were:

  • Abbeylara
  • Ardagh
  • Cashel
  • Colmcille
  • Dromard
  • Éire Óg (Drumlish)
  • Forgney
  • Kenagh
  • Killoe
  • Legan
  • Longford Slashers
  • Mostrim
  • Moydow
  • Seán Connollys
  • Shroid Slashers

By 1982 a total of 14 clubs were involved in active competition in Longford, with county teams also involved in inter-county competition and enjoying various degrees of success particularly in underage competitions. The first Senior Football Championship competition began in July 1982, with Ardagh winning the first title by beating Éire Óg 5-6 to 0-0 in the final.

The 14 Ladies Clubs in competition in 1982 were:

  • Abbeylara
  • Ardagh
  • Ballymore
  • Carrickedmond
  • Cashel
  • Colmcille
  • Dromard
  • Éire Óg (Drumlish)
  • Granard
  • Kenagh
  • Killoe
  • Longford Slashers
  • Shroid Slashers
  • Young Grattans

Longford formed a County team for the first time in 1982 and entered the Leinster Ladies Football Championship that year. After beating Wexford in the Leinster semi-final (4-5 to 0-5), Longford played in the Leinster Football Final on 16th August 1982 against Offaly who had not lost a game in Leinster in the previous 7 years. Offaly led by 3 points at the interval (1-5 to 1-2) after a flying start, and held the upper hand throughout the second half to run out winners. This was an 8th Leinster title in a row for Offaly, having won all the Leinster titles since the competitions inception. Longford scorers on the day included team captain Mary Bratten (Killoe, 1-3), Patricia Reynolds (Ardagh, 0-1) and Edel McGuire (Longford Slashers, 0-1). It was noted in the match report how displeasing it was to note that the grass at Hogan Park in Moate had not been cut for some time and players had difficulty gaining possession. Longford did enjoy title success in 1982 by becoming the first Leinster side to win the Connacht Senior League with a two point victory over Leitrim in September 1982. Longford beat Cavan, Roscommon, Leitrim, Galway and Mayo en route to the final and finished top of the table. Patricia Monaghan (from Clonguish, playing with Killoe) notched up two goals on the day as Longford ran out winners by 3-3 to 0-10.

After reaching the Leinster Senior Football Final at the first time of trying in 1982, Longford were back in the Leinster Final in 1985 (beaten by Laois on that occasion). The Longford Minor team played in the Leinster Championship for the first time in 1982, and reached the final to be beaten by a better Wexford side. The team would reach another Leinster Minor Championship final in the 1980’s but with no success. Longford senior team reached the semi-final of the National League in 1985, beaten by Leitrim by 1-9 to 1-7 in June 1985

As the 1980’s progressed, the explosion in new clubs in 1981 and 1982 was followed by a number of clubs lapsing and disappearing throughout the decade. By the middle of the decade, Granard, Longford Slashers, Colmcille, Carrickedmond, Éire Óg, Legan and Ardagh were competing. Rathcline joined the ranks in 1985, while Mostrim reformed briefly after lapsing for a few years, and a club in Clonbroney emerged briefly too. Clonguish formed a club in March 1986 and had an immediate impact by winning the Senior League title later that year.

In total, six clubs enjoyed Senior Championship success in 1980’s including Ardagh (1982, 1984), Longford Slashers (1983), Granard (1985, 1986), Carrickedmond (1987), St. Annes [Ardagh/Legan] (1988) and Clonguish (1989). The first underage competition got underway by the middle of the decade, with Minor Championship starting in 1985 and Under 16 and Under 14 Championship starting towards the end of the decade. As underage competition took hold, so too did the emergence of underage clubs across the county (Note: The ladies underage club in the parish of Drumlish was founded in 1985 and called St. Helens, while the ladies senior club in the parish was founded in 1981 and called Éire Óg – a nod to the name of the mens club in Drumlish in the 1950’s and 1960’s. By the county final of 1989, the Ladies underage and senior clubs were both called St. Helens, and the Éire Óg name was not used thereafter). As the decade progressed, some clubs thrived while others struggled with numbers amidst rising emigration, and lapsed or folded completely.

By the end of the decade, further clubs had folded with only 6 Ladies clubs in active competition:

  • Carrickedmond
  • Clonguish
  • Dromard
  • Rathcline
  • St. Annes (Ardagh/Legan amalgamation)
  • St. Helens (Éire Óg became St. Helens in 1989)

Longford was competing at Junior grade in the 1990’s, and as the decade went on the team started to enjoy success.

On the club scene, from around 1992 the number of clubs had reduced to just a handful…

  • Ballymore
  • Clonguish
  • Killoe
  • Rathcline
  • St. Helens

While the number of clubs reduced dramatically from the highs of the early 1980’s, the County team was flourishing and embarking on a period of great success under team trainer Martin Reilly (Ballymore), selectors Liam Forde (St. Helens), Christine Jordan (St. Helens) & Peter Donlon (Rathcline), and team physio Mary McNerney. That year Longford beat Dublin by 3-11 to 2-8, and Wexford by 2-18 to 2-13 to book a meeting with Louth in the Leinster Junior Championship final on Sunday 28th July 1996, which Longford won by 2-15 to 4-1. A gallant effort in the All-Ireland Junior Championship final in Croke Park on 6th October 1996 saw Longford come up short against Clare by 5-9 to 4-9. The starting lineout in that All-Ireland final was: Karina Mulvihill (Rathcline), Josephine Donlon (Rathcline), Katherine Donlon (Rathcline), Irene Kiernan (Ballymore), Laura Doherty (Killoe), Barbara McElvaney (Ballymore), Sheila Farrell (Rathcline), Fiona Blessington (Ballymore), Michelle Hannify (St. Helens), Mary Burke (Clonguish), Mary Kiernan (Ballymore), Dara Gill (St. Helens), Jennifer Hennessy (Killoe), Paula Kenny (Rathcline) and Una Flynn (Clonguish). Longford ended 1996 on a high note by winning the ‘B’ Championship, beating Down in Scotstown on 30th November 1996, on a scoreline of 3-14 to 0-5. Longford had previously beat Louth (6-11 to 0-9) and Dublin (1-8 to 1-7) en-route to the final.

Longford ladies were competing in Division 2 of the National Football Junior League by 1997 and defeated Limerick, Galway, Offaly, Kildare and Dublin, along with a walkover from Wicklow and draw with Roscommon. Longford were now thru to the knock-out stages of the Junior League and victory over Armagh and Limerick saw them through to the final on 6th July 1997, and victory over Roscommon by 2-9 to 3-5 in Ballinasloe to win the National Junior Football League (aka Division 3) title of 1997. The starting 15 that day included Karina Mulvhill, Kathrina Donlon, Edel McGann, Josephine Donlon, Sheila Farrell, Barbara McElvaney, Geraldine Hanley, Fiona Blessington, Emma Cooney, Mary Burke, Dara Gill, Michelle Hannify, Jennifer Hennessy, Diane Dempsey and Margaret Kierns. In the 1997 Championship, Longford beat Carlow in the Leinster Junior Championship Final by 4-6 to 3-7 and following victory over Waterford in the All-Ireland Quarter Final by 2-10 to 1-7, and a hard-fought win by 2-8 to 0-9 over New York in a tough All-Ireland semi-final game in Ballinasloe, Longford were yet again in the All-Ireland Junior Championship final, this time against Tyrone. Longford under the watchful eyes of management team Martin Reilly, Peter Donlon, Liam Forde and Gary Fenelon, emerged victorious to record a famous win in Croke Park on 12th October 1997 by 2-12 to 1-11. The team that day was… Karina Mulvihill, Catriona Donlon, Emma Cooney, Sheila Farrell, Jennifer Hennessy, Barbara McElvaney, Geraldine Hanley, Fiona Blessington, Edel McGann, Michelle Smith, Dara Gill (captain), Michelle Hannify, Mary Burke, Mary Kiernan and Una Flynn. The team was managed by Martin Reilly with selectors Peter Donlon, Liam Forde and Gary Fenelon.

The Chair of the County Board at the time was Liam Forde who had been at the helm for much of the eighties and nineties and occupied the position for eighteen years in all, alongside stalwart Peter Donlon as Vice Chairman and Mary Burke as Secretary. Longford won the Under 16 Leinster ‘A’ Championship title for the first time in 1997 with victory over Meath by 7-13 to 2-8 in Mullingar (team trained by Gary Fenelon), and lost the Leinster Minor Final to Laois by 2-5 to 1-7. The Minors were back in the Leinster Final in 1998, but lost again to Laois by 1-14 to 6-5.During the late 1990’s Fiona Blessington won three All-Star awards in 1997, 1998 and 2000, and Fiona along with Michelle Hannify and Dara Gill winning Replacement All-Star awards too in these years. Fiona Blessington also had the honour of being selected as the Inter-Provincial Player of the Tournament in 2000.

At club level, the 1990’s belonged to St. Helens and Ballymore who won four Senior Championship titles each between 1990 and 1999. The early part of the decade saw an amalgamation of the reformed Granard & Abbeylara clubs winning the Senior Championship in 1991, but neither club survived much beyond that success. Meanwhile Killoe reformed in 1991 after an 8-year absence, while a new club formed in Ballymore in 1992. A new Senior ‘B’ Championship also began in 1990 and would evolve into the Junior Championship by 1998. The 1996 Senior Championship final was memorable for two reasons; Firstly, it was played in February 1997 due to delays caused by the success of the county team. Secondly, the scoreboard at full time read 2-7 to 2-6 to St. Helens/Rathcline and with the amalgamation celebrating, the referee was certain the scoreboard was incorrect and so counted his scores and informed both teams that Ballymore had in fact won by 1 point. With Ballymore now celebrating he counted the scores again and concluded a draw. A later review of the video by the Ballymore club found that St. Helens/Rathcline had indeed won the game by a point.

The Senior ‘B’ Championship which had been played at club level in Longford since 1990, evolved into becoming the Junior ‘A’ Championship from 1998 (same structure, just different name). Hence the Junior titles from 1990 to 1997 in this archive were in fact won as Senior ‘B’ Championships at the time. In the years prior to 1998, the Senior ‘B’ Championship was contested by teams who lost in the Senior ‘A’ Championship at Round 1 or Quarter Final or Semi Final stage. The Junior Championships of 1998 and 1999 continued this exact same structure until 2000 when the Junior Championship became a graded competition (i.e. not the offshoot of losing in the Senior Championship, but a competition contested by Junior clubs). The Senior ‘B’ Championship would re-appear as a separate competition some years later.

Intermediate Championship was introduced at club level in 1999. For the 1999 season, teams beaten in the earlier rounds (Round 1 or Quarter finals) of the ‘A’ Championship would play the Junior Championship (which used to be called Senior B from 1990 to 1997 and changed to Junior in 1998), while the beaten semi finalists went into the new Intermediate final. St. Helen’s won the first Intermediate Championship in 1999. By 2000, the Intermediate Championship included teams beaten in all rounds up to and including the semi final. Intermediate competition didn’t become a graded competition (with predefined Intermediate teams or clubs) until some years later.

By the end of the 20th century, Longford had clubs competing in Senior, Intermediate, Junior, Minor, Juvenile, U-14 and U-13 Championship grades and in various League competitions too. Clubs which had lapsed or folded in the 1980’s reformed once again, including Killoe in 1991 and Colmcille in 1997, while a new club was formed in Mullinalaghta in 1998. It is curious to note that one of the greatest periods of success for the Longford county team overlapped with a period in the 1990’s when there were less than a handful of Ladies Clubs in competition.

By the end of the 1990’s the number of clubs had doubled, with 10 clubs in active competition:

  • Ballymore
  • Carrickedmond
  • Clonguish
  • Colmcille
  • Dromard
  • Killoe
  • Mostrim
  • Mullinalaghta
  • Rathcline
  • St. Helens

In the 2000’s, Longford Ladies enjoyed underage success in winning the Leinster Minor B Championship in 2005 and 2008 and the senior team reached the National Junior League Division 1 final vs Clare in 2000, losing out by 2-13 to 1-8.

The 2000 Junior League group stage in Division 1 was as follows…

  • Clare 2-15, Longford 0-4
  • Meath 2-13, Longford 1-2
  • Tyrone 2-10, Longford 3-9
  • Longford 0-6, Monaghan 1-9

In the 2001 Leinster Junior Championship, Longford beat Louth (3-17 to 0-6) but lost to Meath (1-6 to 2-12) and Dublin (0-12 to 0-6).

In the 2002 National Junior League campaign, Longford lost to Clare and Meath, but beat Mayo and Roscommon to remain in Division 1. In the 2002 Leinster Junior Championship, Longford beat Westmeath and lost to Dublin, eventually losing out to Laois in the Leinster semi-final. Sharon Treacy won an All Star Replacement Award in 2002. The Longford Minors reached the Leinster Minor Championship final in 2002, but were defeated by Meath in the decider.

2003 National Junior League campaign saw Longford beat Clare but lose to Galway, Kerry and Monaghan. Longford beat Clare by 4-12 to 1-4 in the play-off game to retain Division 1 status for a 7th year. The team on duty that day was: Karina Mulvihill, Marie Brady, Aideen Gilchrist, Carmel McElvaney, Yvonne Barden, Barbara McElvaney, Marie Carrigy, Michelle McElvaney, Alison Smyth, Maura Moran (0-1), Mary Keirnan, Shiela Farrell, Michelle Ross, Michelle Hannify (1-3), Mary Burke (2-9). Subs used: Denise Murtagh for Mary Keirnan (45 mins), Edel Harrington (0-1) for Maura Moran and Louise Brennan for Shiela Farrell (54 mins), Anne Keirnan for Mary Burke, Donna Leavy for Yvonne Barden (58 mins).

The 2003 Leinster Junior Championship included wins over Westmeath (walkover) and Louth and defeats to Dublin and Laois. In the Minor Championship Longford beat Kildare to earn a Leinster Final date with Meath but lost heavily in Mullingar.

Longford moved up from Junior to Intermediate grade in 2006, and enjoyed great success in the Leinster Intermediate Championship, winning titles in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2013 and 2014. In the 2008 decider Longford beat Kilkenny by 4-14 to 0-1. In the 2009 decider Longford beat Wexford by 4-19 to 0-6. In 2008 Longford also won the Leinster U18 ‘B’ Championship with victory over Louth by 2-12 to 3-4, and the Leinster U14 ‘B’ Championship, beating Louth by 3-7 to 3-4.

Clubs were also making their mark provincially and nationally in the 21st century with Clonguish winning the Leinster Intermediate Club Championship in 2005 and Killoe winning the same competition in 2008. The wider club scene in the 2000’s saw something of a changing of the guard from 2000, moving from the impressive dominance of St. Helens and Ballymore in the 1990’s, to successes for Rathcline, Clonguish and Killoe in the 2000’s. A healthy rivalry between Clonguish and Killoe would define the new century for ladies football in Longford, and the two clubs would go on to share all of the Senior Championship and Senior League titles from 2004 to 2017.

The 2008 & 2009 Senior Championship competition in Longford was technically played as an ‘Intermediate A Championship’. It was decided that Longford Senior Champions of 2008 and 2009 would have to play in the Leinster Senior Club Championship in those years rather than in the Leinster Intermediate Club championship. A decision was made by the Ladies Board to try to stay in the Leinster Intermediate Club competition, hence the local Senior Championship was effectively played as an Intermediate Championship even though it was the same competition and with the same trophy as previous and subsequent Senior Championship years. Hence in the match reports for both years finals, they appear as ‘Intermediate A Championship’ Finals, though in the roll of honour here we have kept these titles alongside the identical Senior Championship titles preceding and succeeding them because in reality that is what they were.

By the end of the decade there were 11 clubs in active adult competition in Longford:

Ballymahon/Forgney
Ballymore
Carrickedmond
Clonguish
Colmcille
Dromard
Killoe
Mostrim
Mullinalaghta
Rathcline
St. Helens

In the 2010 Leinster Intermediate Championship final, Longford beat Westmeath by 1-11 to 1-7 to win a unique 3-in-a-row. In 2011 Longford won the Leinster U16 ‘B’ Championship title with victory over Kildare by 6-10 to 2-8, and went on to win the All Ireland U16 ‘B’ Championship with a 6-14 to 3-5 thumping of Tipperary in the decider. In the 2013 Leinster Intermediate Championship final, Longford beat London by 3-11 to 1-6. In the 2014 Leinster decider Longford beat Offaly by 2-14 to 2-5. In 2015 Longford won the Leinster U14 ‘B’ Championship, beating Laois 3-9 to 1-3 in the final. In 2016 Longford slipped from Intermediate to Junior grade and responded positively by winning the Leinster Junior Championship that year and pushed on to win the All-Ireland Junior Championship by beating Antrim by 4-10 to 1-12 in Croke Park to return to Intermediate grade from 2017 onward. Longford also captured the National League Division 4 title in both 2012 (beating Limerick in the final by 1-15 to 1-8) and 2017 (beating Wicklow by 2-10 to 1-8). Underage teams had significant success at the end of the 2010’s and into the 2020’s with Leinster U18 ‘B’ Championship titles won in 2019 and 2022 and All-Ireland U18 ‘B’ Championship title won in 2019. The Under 16’s won the Leinster U16 ‘B’ Championship title and All-Ireland U16 ‘B’ Championship titles in 2019 and Leinster U16 ‘C’ Championship title in 2022 to continue a successful period for underage Ladies Gaelic Football in Longford. By the 2022 season, Longford was competing at Intermediate grade provincially and nationally and in Division 3 of the National Football League.

On the club scene, Colmcille won the Leinster Junior League in 2011, St. Helens won the Leinster Junior Championship in 2013 and Killoe won the 2013 Leinster Senior League title. In 2015 Mostrim won the All Ireland Junior 7-a-side shield, while in 2018 Clonguish won the All Ireland Intermediate 7-a-side-shield competition. Clonguish also won the All-Ireland U-14 Feile Division 4 title in 2019 and Ballymore rounded off the decade by winning the Leinster Junior Championship in 2020. Club activity in Longford the 2010’s was dominated by the rivalry of Killoe and Clonguish. Both clubs would go on to win all of the Senior Championship and Senior League titles from 2004 to 2017. However other clubs had formed and reformed, and by the end of the 2010’s we see clubs which had once been to the fore in the 1980’s start to re-emerge and assert themselves once more, including Carrickedmond, Longford Slashers (reformed in 2012) and St. Brigids Gaels of Ardagh (reformed and renamed in 2012). A new Ballymahon Forgney club was formed in 2010 and a new club was formed in Killashee in 2016 and competed up until the 2021 season, while Seán Connollys revived their underage club too.

The 2010’s was also a period of sadness with the sudden death of 29 year old Alison Smyth in December 2011. Alison who played with Rathcline and was a midfielder on the Longford Ladies team, was one of the most talented sportswomen of her generation. Ali had been an All-Star nominee in 2009 and a county player from the age of 19. As well as enjoying success with Longford and her club Rathcline, Alison had also helped Ballymahon Convent of Mercy to an All-Ireland title in 1999 and as a basketball player with the Falcons, had guided them to a national title in 2000. In 2012 the J.J. McCabe cup which had been presented to all winners of the Ladies Senior Football Championship in Longford since 1982, was retired and replaced with the Alison Smyth memorial cup in her honour.

2022 saw Longford Slashers win 4-in-a-row Longford Senior Championship titles and went on to win the Leinster Intermediate Club Championship title with a 3-10 to 3-6 win over Skryne from Meath on 13th November 2022, becoming only the third Longford club to win the Leinster Intermediate title. The Slashers Ladies went one further and defeated Charlestown in the All-Ireland Semi-Final en-route to the All-Ireland Intermediate Club Final on 10th December 2022. Longford Slashers then made history by becoming the first club from Longford (in either LGFA or GAA) to reach and win an All-Ireland Club Championship final and the first Longford club in GAA or LGFA to win a competitive game in Croke Park, when they defeated Mullinahone of Tipperary by 4-11 to 2-8 on a frosty December afternoon in Croke Park, to bring the curtain down on 135 years of Gaelic Games in Longford in some style.
