Longford GAA supporters are travelling to Croke Park in their thousands for today's Leinster Senior Football Championship semi-final against the reigning champions Dublin, throw-in 4pm.

Denis Connerton's side may well be underdogs against Jim Gavin's Dubs, however, the blue and gold army are looking forward to the county's first appearance in a provincial senior semi-final since 1988. 

The exodus of Longford fans, via road and rail, to GAA headquarters commenced early this morning and here's wishing them and the team and mentors every success. If you can't make it to Croke Park, don't forget the game is being televised live on RTE.

Longford Abú!!!!
