Killoe reap what they sow. Glad they didn't win three in a row.

Touched a nerve. Are you one of those fanatics?

Any whispers on new senior football manager, unless they can coax Davy Burke down I'd imagine it will be a local appointment but seems to taking an age which is not a good sign.

Not suprised Clonguish won. A lot of bitterness after what happened in the Mostrim 2020 group game so they were going to go out to stop Killoe winning the league. Does this mean mullinlaghta have the league won now or many games left?

Granard didn't show up for their match with Mullinalaghta this morning, so Mullinalaghta are a point behind Killoe with Abbeylara left to play.

I wouldn't be a big fan of Clonguish but what happened in that game with Killoe and Mostrim was not football. Delighted to see them put a huge dent in Killoes chances of winning the league. And great to see it was them that got the chance to do it after what happened last year.

The league in Longford is what it was in Leitrim a couple years back. Teams not fielding all over the place and it devalues the league big time. Like granard a disgrace not playing Sunday morning cause a result didn't go there way a day before. County board are clueless too letting it run until November and still not appointing a manger 4 months after Davis left shows there a mile behind the rest

Any sign of the new county manager to be announced? Dermot McCabe looks to be the front runner

I think the clubs themselves voted to have 11 rounds in the league!!

Collie Clarke has left his roll as Grattans manager. I didn't think he had a chance of it or was even in for it. From what I'm hearing now he's the one they want. He's still undecided as apparently he committed to helping out coaching with Sean O'Heslins. Not sure mixing the two would work out.

He is in the running for it along with a couple of others. Interviews next week. Other candidates is a successful manager of the older generation and another manger very successful at club level in Connaught.

Ahh now, Collie Clarke. You may go back to bed, this is a serious discussion group.

What happened in the game with Killoe and Mostrim that was 'not football'? We have streaming footage of the game now to refer back to, so what exactly are you claiming? How predictable that your anti-Killoe rhetoric flows back into the forum once Killoe loses their first league game. Longford GAA would be a great deal better off without the likes of you. Get a hobby and a better attitude.

The League rot set in as early as Round 4 in mid July.

Round 4: Dromard conceded - W/O for Clonguish.
Round 4: Rathcline conceded - W/O for Killoe.
Round 5: Rathcline conceded - W/O for Colmcille.
Round 5: Granard conceded - W/O for Killoe.
Round 6: Rathcline conceded - W/O for Carrickedmond.
Round 7: Dromard conceded - W/O for Mullinalaghta.
Round 7: Rathcline conceded - W/O for Clonguish.
Round 8: Rathcline conceded - W/O for Dromard.
Round 9: Rathcline conceded - W/O for Fr. Manning Gaels.
Round 10: Rathcline conceded - W/O for Mullinalaghta.
Round 11: Rathcline conceded - W/O for Abbeylara.
Round 11: Fr. Manning Gaels conceded - W/O for Mostrim.
Round 11: Granard conceded - W/O for Mullinalaghta.

I think once Rathcline had conceded 3 games they were automatically disqualified from the rest of the league (others can correct that if it is wrong) hence their remaining rounds were automatic concessions.

So 13 games out of 132 will have been conceded by the end.

- Rathcline will have conceded 8 rounds.
- Dromard will have conceded 2 rounds.
- Granard will have conceded 2 rounds.
- Fr. Manning Gaels will have conceded 1 round.

Mullinalaghta got 3 walkovers, Killoe & Clonguish got 2 walkovers each, while Colmcille, Carrickedmond, Dromard, Abbeylara, Fr. Manning Gaels and Mostrim all got 1 walkover.

Granard are getting stick here (and rightly so) but Fr. Manning Gaels also conceded their game against Mostrim at the weekend. I know they are heading into Intermediate but that is no excuse. There should be consequences for clubs taking the pi$$ like this. There is lots of stuff said on here about certain clubs, and a heck of a lot of negative bias on display from certain regular contributors, but at least lets credit the clubs who show up, rain or shine, lose or win, and play their games.

this is the killoe mostrim 2020 game we are talking about. i watched it as a neutral and was embarrased at what was witnessed, the walking around with the ball, keeping the scoreline good and tight. all conveniently helped get clonguish knocked out of the championship due to what killoe felt were the actions of a clubman in getting them banned. certain killoe fans were gloating about this on social media. this was spoken about before on the forum. the very opposite of what the gaa is about. when you say what longford gaa would be better off without, it would be better off without the likes of that. clonguishes have long memories

there are consequences and rightly so, the clubs get fined each time they dont field and if they dont field 3 times they are out of the competition. what consequences are you looking for?

If Longford Gaa want to be forward thinking they should completely restructure the league and championship formats.
Use a champions league type system to feed into the championship and link both league and championship compititions.
In a small county like Longford clubs can't afford to play without county players, we don't have the numbers so run a compitition alongside the county window and then straight into championship/league format. We don't need to hold onto the Leader Cup just because that's always been the way. Let's move forward with a more competitive competition.
