Longford / Re: Longford Football (& Hurling) Thread

Good win for the WT hurlers in awful conditions.

Slashers were poor in the second half. Losing a lad early on didn't help. Their second red was flagged as soon as the chap came on. He had a yellow after 15 seconds and was like the gunslinger in the old West - you could seem him itching for a row.

Semis in the football, perhaps the rest of the Championship, are in doubt I would imagine.

What a mess.............and the JMC wing on the County Board will point and say "I feckin told yiz so"

Killoe getting all the blame, as far as I can see. For extra FFS-idness one of the players in the frame seems to be a Covid-19 denier on twitter. Ya couldn't make it up.

On the good news from Eggistown/Ballinalee bate Slashers in the minor final.

God only knows when we'll face Mullinyarta in the final........could be next year.

Yes............it did seem that Killoe knew that a Clonguish clubman was head of the Longford Hearings Committee that had banned them for 48 weeks.

Maybe that was coinkydink.

Maybe Killoe felt sorry still for beating us in a county final in 198? when we were hot favourites.
They even must have forgiven us for staylin Christy and Wilsheen Kennedy in the late 70s and they more Killoe than......I dunno.....a 100% Killoe thing.

I think it was simply an alignment of these factors above. Or perhaps 100% uimhir a h-aon.

Well done to Mullinalaghta yesterday but it was tough on Colmcille. Looked like they were home and hosed.

The Slashers are named after Myles 'The Slasher' O'Reilly that fought the redcoats on the Bridge of Finea.

Also provided the great headline when Albert became the Teashop and fired a rake of FF ministers in a cabinet purge.

The Longford Slasher

Killoe v Mostrim next up. Killoe to win by 4  ;)

I expect a DRA decision soon.

If sense prevails they will rule in favour of Killoe.

But Laurel is right. There are 3-4 individuals in the County setup that need their cough softened.

GAA is NOT a minority sport in DLR.

All you have to do is look at the state of Blackrock Rugby Club. FFS they were on the verge of being Cuala's bitch.

Watched Mostrim v Clonguish on the telly. It was a pretty good game and could have gone either way.

I do think Killoe (hopefully the issues will be resolved) will go out to hammer Mostrim so that Clonguish and all who sail in her will qualify.

I really do think this.

Honestly.

Larry Dunne - aged 72.

Dunne was the kingpin of the drugs trade in Dublin in the early 80s.

Tiede Herrama

For those of us over 50 his name is very familiar.

The siege of Monasterevin was gripping stuff.
Reconciled with Eddie Gallager as far as I recall.
Marion Coyle, I think, wasn't interested.

RIP
