An ever-present in the blue and gold between 2001 and 2017, Longford lined out in the National League and Championship during 2018 minus their dependable and versatile defender, Dermot Brady, who opted to call time on his inter-county career. 

One of the most highly regarded and respected players to ever wear the Longford jersey, Dermot was among the ten people honoured at the Midlands Simon Community Longford People of the Year Awards 2018 at the Longford Arms Hotel on Friday night in recognition of his sterling service to the county cause.
