Mostrim Men

Thomas Doyle and Tom McLoughlin with their New York Senior Football championship medals, won in 2018 and 1957, respectively.

With Longford hosting Offaly in the National League on Sunday, John McGerr brought this little piece of GAA history to our attention.

Two Edgeworthstown men won medals in the US playing for Offaly and Longford in the New York Senior Championship.

Long time Mostrim player, county final referee and stalwart administrator with club and county, Tom McLoughlin lined out with Offaly when they won the New York Senior Football title in 1957 while Thomas Doyle had the distinction of featuring in Longford's historic 2018 triumph.

Last year, Longford defeated Monaghan by 0-12 to 0-11, in the Final at Gaelic Park.
