Victorious Longford ladies give county a huge lift

The whole county of Longford got a huge lift when the Longford Ladies beat Antrim to claim All-Ireland honours at junior level. It was a perfect example of the impact of sport as thousands of proud fans welcomed home their heroines upon their return to the town. 

The Longford side garnered praise from throughout the country due to the manner of their victory in Croke Park. 

After beginning in nervous fashion, Longford were in danger of letting Antrim out of sight before they began to reel in their opponents and completed a remarkable turnaround.
