League Opponents

Longford hurlers played 18 Irish Counties plus London, Lancashire Warwickshire, South Down and Fingal in NHL over the years. Longford never encountered 13 counties in NHL including Westmeath, Offaly, Dublin, Laois, Kilkenny, Wexford, Galway, Cork, Waterford, Clare, Limerick, Tipperary & Antrim. Longford’s top 3 most regular opposition in NHL has been Leitrim (27), Sligo (25) and Donegal (24). Longford failed to field twice over the years… vs Donegal in 1999 and vs Fermanagh in 2012.

The 2001 NHL stopped for a month after Round 2 due to the Foot & Mouth crisis. Upon resumption, Tyrone were unable to travel due to restrictions in the North, hence the Longford v Tyrone game was never played. The 2020 NFL Division 3A should have included Warwickshire, but they could not compete due to Covid-19 pandemic restrictions.
