Are we ignoring that the Longford women are doing great things - Slashers in the Leinster Intermediate Final and Colmcille in the Leinster Junior Final?

And so we begin again with the same arrangement; twelve teams divided into two groups of 6.

Group 1:

Dromard v Killashee, Sat, 6.15pm, Edgeworthstown
Longford Slashers v Granard, Sat, 8pm, Edgeworthstown
Mullinalaghta v Mostrim, Sun, 1.30pm, Granard

Group 2:

Colmcille v Clonguish, Fri, 8pm, Ballinalee
Rathcline v Killoe, Sun, 5.15pm, Newtownforbes
Carrickedmond v Abbeylara, Sun, 7pm, Newtownforbes

Paddy Power odds (https://www.paddypower.com/gaelic-games/longford-club-football?tab=outrights):

Mullinalaghta 11/8
Killoe 3/1
Colmcille 8/1
Abbeylara 8/1
Dromard 9/1
Longford Slashers 9/1
Mostrim 11/1
Granard 16/1
Clonguish 16/1
Rathcline 33/1
Carrickedmond 50/1
Killashee 66/1

Boylesports (https://www.boylesports.com/sports/gaa/outrights)

Mullinalaghta 6/4
Killoe 5/2
Dromard 5/1
Abbeylara 8/1
Colmcille 9/1
Longford Slashers 12/1
Mostrim 12/1
Granard 20/1
Clonguish 25/1
Killashee 50/1
Carrickedmond 50/1
Rathcline 50/1

Personally, after winning a very competitive group in the league and beating Mullinalaghta in the Division 1 final, those look like extremely generous odds on a Colmcille team who have been there or thereabouts for the last couple of years and who have the appearance of strong favourites for a first title since 2008.

Colmcille 1-10 Clonguish 0-7

Dromard 4-19 Killashee 0-3
Longford Slashers 1-14 Granard 1-9

Mullinalaghta 1-15 Mostrim 1-15

Killoe 0-17 Rathcline 2-14
Abbeylara 0-10 Carrickedmond 0-13

At this point looking like Colmcille and Dromard ahead of the pack.

Group 2:

Abbeylara v Rathcline, Fri, 8pm, Killoe
Clonguish v Carrickedmond, Sun, 1.30pm, Ardagh
Killoe v Colmcille, Sun, 5.15pm, Legga

Mullinalaghta 11/8 6/4
Killoe 3/1 4/1
Colmcille 8/1 7/1
Dromard 9/1 7/1
Longford Slashers 9/1 7/1

Mostrim 11/1 10/1

Granard 16/1 25/1
Clonguish 16/1 25/1
Carrickedmond 50/1 25/1
Killashee 66/1 200/1

Boylesports (https://www.boylesports.com/sports/gaa/outrights)

Mullinalaghta 6/4
Killoe 5/2 7/2
Dromard 5/1 9/2
Colmcille 9/1 13/2
Mostrim 12/1 9/1
Abbeylara 8/1 10/1
Longford Slashers 12/1 11/1
Rathcline 50/1 14/1
Carrickedmond 50/1 25/1
Granard 20/1 33/1
Clonguish 25/1 50/1
Killashee 50/1 100/1

Big movers in the betting are Rathcline after last week's win over Killoe and they may come in further if they can beat Abbey tonight. Dromard and Colmcille both easing in with Mostrim and Slashers following them. Killashee have allegedly conceded their match tonight to Slashers; they were struggling to field a team last week against Dromard and there's no ref listed on the Longford website for the match.

Killashee scr. Longford Slashers w/o
Abbeylara 1-12 Rathcline 2-5

Rathcline 2-3 to 0-3 up after 15 minutes and still the final score flattered their second-half performance.

Mostrim 1-7 Dromard 2-9

Clonguish 2-12 Carrickedmond 1-9

Killoe 2-7 Colmcille 0-14
Granard 2-5 Mullinalaghta 1-12

Pretty much a return to form after last week's surprises, with Killoe nearly stealing a draw with a late goal only to pass the ball directly to a Colmcille player who delivered it downfield for the winning point.
