CPL continue for another season as Longford rugby club’s title sponsor.We would like to that Ann Heraty and all at CPL for this continued support. Also thank you to all the other club sponsors.

World Cup competition
The Senior Men's squad of Longford RFC are running an exciting competition with €500 up for grabs for the winner. The competition is based on Ireland's second match of this year’s Rugby World Cup against the host nation Japan on Saturday September 28.

The players will be selling scratch cards, one for every second of the game. The lucky person who has the card with the right time matching when the first try is scored will win €500, it is as simple as that! Cards are also available from any of the Senior Playing Squad right up to the match v Japan, if they do not sell out first.

All proceeds go towards funding the Senior Men’s Squad for the coming season. They have done us proud over the last few years, winning the Midland League twice, finishing second/third in Leinster League 1B and reaching the Towns Cup semi-final last year. They are aiming to push on this year and your support will help them move forward. The cost of the tickets are a very reasonable €2 each or 3 for €5.

Our first annual pitch & putt classic took place in the Acres Ballinalee on Saturday July 27. A total of 43 teams took part in what was a great tournament. The winners were:
