Sure we may as well disinter the 2020 Championship from its resting place for the last eleven months.

Semi-finals:

Killoe v Mostrim, Sat, 6pm
Longford Slashers v Mullinalaghta, Sun, 6pm

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

Mullinalaghta Evens 10/11 Evens
Killoe 7/2 6/4 13/8
Longford Slashers 7/1 4/1 6/1 5/1
Mostrim 28/1 20/1 10/1

Ladbrokes (https://sports.ladbrokes.com/competitions/gaa/gaelic-football/club-football)

Mullinalaghta 6/5 11/10
Killoe 3/1 11/4 13/8
Longford Slashers 7/1 9/2 5/1
Mostrim 33/1 20/1 10/1 8/1

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

Mullinalaghta 4/7 4/6 Evens
Killoe 7/2 4/1 5/2 6/4
Longford Slashers 9/1 5/1 6/1 9/2
Mostrim 100/1 20/1 15/2 16/1

Ladbrokes clearly know something about Mostrim that no-one else does; to be fair, Mostrim's first win last year came in the quarter-final against Abbey, so Killoe may be heading for a fall...

Killoe 1-20 Mostrim 1-6

Killoe's greatest difficulty next Sunday is likely to be choosing which team to pick according to the commentators on Shannonside.

Longford Slashers 1-9 Mullinalaghta 1-7

No complaints; we were off the pace and never seemed to develop the urgency required. The one consolation will be watching senior members of the county executive having to present the Connolly Cup to the club they spent most of last year trying to drive out of Longford football.

2020 final:

Killoe v Longford Slashers, Sun, 3pm

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

Killoe 7/2 6/4 13/8 1/3
Longford Slashers 7/1 4/1 6/1 5/1 2/1

Ladbrokes (https://sports.ladbrokes.com/competitions/gaa/gaelic-football/club-football)

Killoe 3/1 11/4 13/8 4/11
Longford Slashers 7/1 9/2 5/1 2/1

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

Killoe 7/2 4/1 5/2 6/4 4/11
Longford Slashers 9/1 5/1 6/1 9/2 15/8

Will be closer than the odds might have it but still can't see Killoe not getting the last laugh on Derek, James Mel, and Albert. (But what, after all, do the bookies know?)

Off we go again:

Group A:

Colmcille v Carrickedmond, Sat, 5.30pm, Granard
Longford Slashers v Mostrim, Sat, 5.30pm, Ardagh
Fr Manning Gaels v Killoe, Sat, 7.30pm, Newtownforbes

All looks straightforward enough for the first weekend unless Mostrim can mount a backlash or Killoe have spent the entire week on the sauce (and Kiernan's Forge was closed by Tuesday night so they'd have to have migrated to Begley's).

Group B:

Clonguish v Mullinalaghta, Sun, 5.30pm, Ballinalee
Rathcline v Granard, Sun, 5.30pm, Edgeworthstown
Dromard v Abbeylara, Sun, 6pm, Carrickadorish

Granard and Abbey should probably be strong enough.

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

Mullinalaghta 15/8 (eh?)
Killoe 5/2 (lads, they've been champions for the last two and a bit years, they should be comfortable favourites by now)
Longford Slashers 13/2
Colmcille 9/1
Abbeylara 9/1 (these three should be a lot closer than this)
Dromard 10/1
Clonguish 12/1
Mostrim 16/1
Granard 20/1
Fr Manning Gaels 33/1
Carrickedmond 50/1
Rathcline 50/1
Leader Cup winners: 1945, 1947, 1948, 1949, 1950, 1951, 2013, 2016, 2017, 2019
