Longford, who have yet to appoint a new manager, will face neighbours Westmeath in the quarter-final of the 2022 Leinster GAA senior football championship on April 30/May 1. 

In the 2021 championship, Longford defeated Carlow by 0-25 to 2-13 in the opening round at Bord na Mona O'Connor Park, Tullamore but in the quarter-final they went down heavily to Meath by 0-12 to 4-22  at Páirc Tailteann, Navan, after which Padraic Davis announced he was stepping down as manager. 

The draw for the Semi-Finals will take place upon completion of all the Quarter-Finals games.
