Hammered by the wide margin of 15 points by Meath in the first round proper the previous week, Longford crashed to another crushing defeat in the Leinster Inter-County Vocational Schools Senior Football Championship Qualifier away to Offaly at the Geashill grounds on Saturday last.

It was a dismal display by a very poor Longford outfit who are now out of the competition. After winning the toss and taking the advantage of the wind in the first half, the far superior Offaly team made that advantage pay when scoring six points in the first eleven minutes.
