Draws made for the 2021 Longford GAA Championships

New format in the battle for this year’s county senior football title

Draws made for the 2021 Longford GAA Championships

The draws for the 2021 Longford GAA Championships were made after the Lory Meagher Cup semi-final against Fermanagh at Glennon Brothers Pearse Park on Saturday. 

There is a new format in the battle for this year’s county senior football title with the 12 clubs divided into two groups of six. 

The group winners will qualify for the semi-finals while the second and third placed teams will make it through to the quarter-finals. The bottom team in each group will meet in a relegation play-off

There is a significant change to this year’s Intermediate Football Championship with the second strings of four senior clubs - Colmcille, Killoe, Clonguish and Longford Slashers - competing for the Gerry Hennessy Cup.

There are two groups in the Intermediate grade and the same format will apply in the Junior Football Championship with Ballymore dropping down to the third tier competition this year.  

Clonguish Gaels, Longford Slashers and the title holders Wolfe Tones Mostrim will compete in the Senior Hurling Championship.
