'O'Moore Park is a difficult venue

O'Moore Park has not being the kindest venue to Longford, according to their manager Denis Connerton.

Longford teams have struggled to get wins there over the years as they prepare to take on Laois at the Portlaoise venue this weekend.

This Leinster SFC clash is set to be a tight affair and Connerton is hopeful that they can get their campaign off to a winning start.

“O'Moore Park is a difficult venue; no point in saying that it's not for Longford teams, it has actually been a difficult venue for lots of teams. For me it's my fifth Leinster senior championship campaign that I will lead Longford into and I have never had a home draw during my time at the helm,” Connerton told the Longford Leader.

“That is hard to believe and it bugs me to think that I have yet to manage a Longford team to a win in the Leinster SFC and this is my fifth shot at it.”
