New Longford senior football manager Padraic Davis.

Longford will meet Kildare or Wicklow in the quarter-final of the 2019 Leinster SFC under the guidance of new manager Padraic Davis.

A tough draw for Longford if Kildare score their expected win over Wicklow in Round 1 and thus set up a repeat of last year’s qualifier clash.   

Four-in-row All-Ireland champions Dublin are in the same half of the draw which was made live on RTE on Thursday night. 

Longford's reward for reaching the Leinster SFC semi-final for the first time in 30 years last season was a bye through to the quarter-finals in 2019 as one of the seeded teams.
