(Years shown above indicate approximate year when manager was appointed)

1995 Senior Football Note: Senior Football manager Tom Donoghue resigned in April 1995 citing a lack of commitment from players, when only 12 players showed up for a challenge game vs Offaly as part of Leinster Championship preparation. T.J. Ward, Brendan Gilmore and Jimmy Fox took over as caretaker management for the Leinster Championship game against Meath, while John Greene took as caretaker manager for the All Ireland B Championship campaign before Eamon Coleman was appointed to the role later in the year.

Senior Hurling Note: Senior Hurling manager Noel Daly resigned in 1999 after Longford failed to field a team for the game vs Donegal. The game had been re-arranged for a Saturday and the Donegal Hurling Board was allowed to switch the venue to almost a hundred miles further from Longford. This was the first time Longford had been unable to field a team in the National Hurling League, and it garnered much media attention at the time. In April 2012 Longford failed to field against Fermanagh following a crisis caused by heavy defeats during a difficult season in Division 3B. Longford had just appointed Wexford native Frank Browne and a process of rebuilding was undertaken which happily resulted in winning Division 3B the following year in 2013.
