Longford ladies recorded another landslide win in Division 4 of the National League as they crushed Carlow who were ripped apart by the ruthlessness of James Daly’s razor sharp side at the Clonbonny grounds, Lanesboro on Sunday last.

Longford . . . . . 8-16 Carlow . . . . . 0-5
Once again Longford will have learned nothing from this game but you can only beat what is in front of you. There will be tougher games ahead before the championship away to Fermanagh and Wicklow in the remaining three league fixtures. They have a break of three weeks now before they face Fermanagh on March 19th.
The star of the show in the very easy 35 points win over Carlow was centre-half-forward Aisling Reynolds who clocked up a total of 4-6 in producing a tremendous performance.
