Killoe are generally considered to be the main threat for the title holders Mullinalaghta and enter the championship arena this weekend with a clash against old rivals Longford Slashers.

The Dromard GAA grounds is the venue for this most intriguing game on Saturday evening (throw-in 7.30pm) and the pressure is on Slashers to get a result in their remaining Group 3 fixture against Emmet Og. 

Enon Gavin’s side had victory snatched from their grasp in the draw against Dromard at Allen Park on Sunday evening last but the benefit of that match might stand to the sky-blues in their quest to survive in the championship.

Another nine games in the senior (5) and intermediate championships (4) are down for decision this weekend.

Complete coverage of all the games in the county championships last weekend in this week’s Longford Leader.

There were three draws in the Connolly Cup, Ballymahon v Mostrim, Abbeylara v Clonguish and Dromard v Longford Slashers, with wins for Granard (v Carrickedmond) and Mullinalaghta (v Colmcille).
