Longford Officials

The County Board of the GAA in Longford (Coiste Chontae an Longfort) was formed on 13th October 1889. The list below shows those who held the key roles of Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer and PRO from 1889 to 2022. During the period from 1892-1904, the County Board (or County Council as it was known then) was not in existence and no official competition took place. In 1896 a County Committee was briefly established with just four clubs in existence at the time, but with no official competition was held. The County Board was then dissolved and did not reform again until 1904 and has been became active ever since.

The GAA was faced with its first crisis in the aftermath of the Parnell affair, and activities and structures in Longford and other counties effectively ceased throughout the 1890’s. It should be noted that Longford was predominantly anti-Parnell during the crisis period. The 1891 championship in Longford was started but remained unfinished (for different reasons) and the County Board failed to form after 1891. With the exception of a brief revival in 1896, the County Board in Longford remained suspended for most of the 1890’s until resumption of activity in 1904. The number of clubs in Ireland dropped from 879 to 200 between 1890 and 1892 – the height of the Parnell scandal. The impact on Longford was a decimation of clubs and competition throughout the period from 1891 to 1903.
