It was all over as a contest at half-time, at which stage Longford had built up a commanding 2-11 to 1-2 lead with Emer Heaney and Sarah Tierney scoring the goals.

And the one-way traffic continued on the changeover as Longford added a further 3-8 to their most emphatic tally.

Michelle Farrell (2) and Aisling Reynolds got the goals in the second half and James Daly’s side can now look forward to the National League Division 4 Final against Wicklow or Fermanagh on Sunday April 30 in their quest for promotion.

Longford scorers: Michelle Farrell 2-4 (two points from frees, one goal from free); Sarah Tierney 1-3, Emer Heaney 1-2, Aisling Reynolds 1-1, Aisling O'Hara 0-3, Aisling Greene 0-2, Ann Duffy 0-2, Mairead Moore 0-1, Anna McDonnell 0-1.
