In the first round of the 2022 TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate championship, Longford travel to Newbridge on Sunday to take on Kildare at St Conleth’s Park, throw-in 2pm.

The teams previously met in April at the Monaduff grounds, Drumlish in Round 2 of the TG4 Leinster Championship.

On that occasion, Brian Noonan’s side put in a very solid performance against Kildare and were just beaten by one point, 1-11 to 2-7, with Kildare going on to win the Leinster Intermediate championship.

 Sunday’s game at St Conleth's Park is a new start for Longford in the TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate series. Heading to Newbridge to play Kildare on their own turf is never an easy experience.

However, Longford have nothing to fear against the current Leinster Intermediate champions. Preparations have gone well over the past number of weeks for the Longford girls and this committed panel are ready for the challenges ahead in a tough group C that also includes Connacht finalists Roscommon.

Hopefully,  good support will travel to Newbridge on Sunday  to cheer on the Longford team in this important All-Ireland Intermediate championship fixture. Best of luck to the Longford panel and management on Sunday.
